70-year-old Republican Senate nominee for Alabama, Roy Moore, was recently accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a teenage girl more than three dozen years ago. When Moore was 32 years old and working as a district attorney, he reportedly had a relationship, including physical aspects, with 14-year-old Leigh Corfman.
As reported earlier, Corfman told the Washington Post that she and Moore met in 1979 when he asked for her phone number. Corfman claimed that he told her she was pretty, took her to his house, they kissed, and she had other sexual contact with Moore, but not intercourse.
The then 14-year-old eventually left the relationship. Other women have also come forward, claiming that they had a relationship with Moore when they were a teenager, but made it clear that he did not force them into anything.
Moore denied all allegations, insisting that these false accusations are an attack on conservatives from the Democratic party.
The White House responded to the allegations regarding Moore on Thursday, November 9th.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated, “Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life. However, the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside," she said on behalf of the President of the United States.
Liberals responded with rage, accusing Sanders and Trump of defending Moore’s alleged inappropriate relationships.
