Christian Conservative GOP Candidate Roy Moore And The Sexual Plunder Of A 14-Year-Old Girl (And Other Teens)

A growing chorus of Senate Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, has called on U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from a special election in Alabama in the wake of an allegation, reported in The Washington Post, that the former judge initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl.

“If these allegations are true, he must step aside,” McConnell said in a formal statement on behalf of all Republican senators.

This news comes on the heels of shocking revelations today about Moore and his sexual appetite for young teenage girls.  This can not be labeled as his ‘youthful indiscretion’.

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

Aside from Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older. None of the women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact.

Wendy Miller says she was 14 and working as a Santa’s helper at the Gadsden Mall when Moore first approached her, and 16 when he asked her on dates, which her mother forbade. Debbie Wesson Gibson says she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high school civics class and asked her out on the first of several dates that did not progress beyond kissing. Gloria Thacker Deason says she was an 18-year-old cheerleader when Moore began taking her on dates that included bottles of Mateus Rosé wine. The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19. 

Neither Corfman nor any of the other women sought out The Post. While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore’s Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls. Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women. All were initially reluctant to speak publicly but chose to do so after multiple interviews, saying they thought it was important for people to know about their interactions with Moore. The women say they don’t know one another.

Roy Moore: “The Transgenders Don’t Have Rights”

Here is yet another example of why Republican candidate Roy Moore is so dangerous to the GOP.  Once he is elected and makes inflammatory and despicable statements on the senate floor every other candidate for office on their party ticket will be asked by some reporter to weigh in on the topic.

As to the latest bombastic and highly un-Christian comment from one who uses his religion as a partisan tool–well, polls around the nation show he is on the minority side when it comes to transgender rights.

Moore who is running for the U.S. Senate in Alabama stated, “They’ve never been denominated as having rights by the U.S. Supreme Court. [Democrat Doug Jones] believes in transgender bathrooms and transgenders in the military. I disagree with him 100 percent,” Moore said.

Moore’s comments came one day after Danica Roem, a transgender woman, unseated a conservative Republican in a Virginia House of Delegates race.

Moore is not known to be rooted to the U.S. Constitution.  He was twice removed from the state Supreme Court, first for defying a federal order to remove a large statue of the Ten Commandments from the courthouse. He was most recently removed for advising judges not to honor the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage.

And so it goes.
