Roy Moore's full statement on teen sex encounter allegation

Roy Moore's full statement on teen sex encounter allegation

The Washington Post reports that Leigh Corfman has accused Moore of kissing her and telling her she was pretty in one encounter and in another encounter removing his clothes, touching her over her bra and underpants, and guiding her hand to touch him over his underwear.

"I have prayed over this", she said.

Wendy Miller told The Washington Post that "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".

She thought: "I don't want to do this" and 'I need to get out of here'. She told the Post that Moore asked for her phone number, and several days later brought her to his house and kissed her. Lee said in a statement: "If these allegations are true, Judge Moore should resign".

Moore came under fire for his extremely conservative positions and statements made over the years, including a 2006 suggestion that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, shouldn't be seated because "Islamic law is simply incompatible with our law", and his contention that homosexuality should be illegal.

Moore, on a second visit, took off Corfman's shirt and trousers and he removed his own clothes, the report said, which added that he touched her over her bra and underwear and "he guided her hand to touch him over his underwear". She said she pulled back and asked to be taken home, which he did.

Bibb County GOP Chairman Jerry Pow told Dale that he would still cast his vote for Moore "because I wouldn't want to vote for [Democratic candidate Doug Jones]". She said she was thinking, "Please just get this over with". Luther Strange in the primary he lost to Moore.

Four women have told the Washington Post that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore pursued them when they were teenagers - between the ages of 14 and 18 - and he was in his 30s.

But she expressed clear discomfort about the physical interactions she says happened.

The legal age of consent in Alabama is 16, and was at the time of the alleged incident, with Corfman, when she was 14. The legal drinking age at the time was 19.

It is a felony, punishable by up to ten year in prison, to entice a child younger than 16 to enter a home with the objective of proposing sexual intercourse or fondling of sexual and genital parts.

Moore and his campaign denied the allegations in a written statement, calling them "completely false" and "a desperate political attack".

His campaign later added that the allegations were "garbage" and the "definition of fake news".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called on Moore to drop out of the Alabama Senate race if the allegations are true.

In response, the Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler has said that Roy Moore is like the parents of Christ. Rob Portman, of OH said. He is slated to face off against Democrat Doug Jones in December.

Borden's attorneys attempted to get Moore to recuse himself, citing his known beliefs against homosexuality, and the fact that one of them was an ACLU attorney.

He is best known to many for his stunt in 2003, where he was removed from office after refusing to take down the Ten Commandments monument he had installed on the grounds of the state judicial building.
