The troubles for Republican Roy Moore’s inner-circle did not end with his shocking loss to Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama special election.
Moore, who was twice ousted as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, is still facing potential defamation lawsuits against him, his wife Kayla Moore and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Moore accuser Gloria Deason’s attorney, Paula Cobia, told the Washington Examiner she “absolutely will pursue a defamation suit against Moore and his wife and others (to possibly include [Steve] Bannon) on behalf of Gloria and myself.”
During the campaign, Moore and his political allies offered contradictory statements about accusers.
“As I recall she was 19 or older. I never provided intoxicating liquor to a minor. I seem to remember her as a good girl,” Moore told Sean Hannity.
Yet less than two weeks later, Moore changed his story and claimed to have never met any of the accusers.
“They have defamed both of us repeatedly and ignored my numerous public demands for apologies and retractions,” Cobia claimed.
