Roy Moore: Alabama Senate candidate denies child sex abuse
bbc ^ | November 9, 2017

Posted on 11/09/2017 12:18:48 PM PST by Red Steel

An Alabama candidate for the US Senate is strongly denying allegations that he sexually abused a 14-year-old girl.

Roy Moore, a Republican firebrand, said claims that he preyed on a teenager while he was a 32-year-old prosecutor were "completely false".

Leigh Corfman and three other women say Mr Moore made sexual advances on them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18, the Washington Post reports.

The top Senate Republican said Mr Moore must step aside if the claims are true.

Mr Moore, who is now 70, said in a statement to the Post: "These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign."

The Christian conservative's team said in another statement about the allegations, "this garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

"Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake," its statement added.

Gee, we have Weinstein and the whole hollywood left embroiled in sexual assault and pedophile scandals, and all of a sudden, the left comes up with this stuff on Moore. What a coincidence...

He left out that it was also a desperate attempt by the republican party and its senate majority leader to defame him and prevent his election to the senate.

Could they have even sacrificed some of their pwn pieces to create an environment where these allegations cause people to step down from positions?

So are we allowed to ask who these women are?

And who they’re aligned with politically?

Remember when Trump was running and women were coming out of the woodwork accusing him everyday and it was being reported as news!

The GOPe did this to Trump after the ‘grab them by the p...’ video surfaced.

“Get out if you won’t be part of the swamp,” is their default position.

Moore just needs to deny it and move on.

Sure we’ll find out later the accuser is a Democrat plant. It’s a he said/she said about something in 1979 a few weeks out from a Senate election.

Notice how Democrats play to destroy their opponents and Republicans - aside from Trump - don’t.
