Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman files defamation lawsuit against Moore, campaign

Ms. Corfman resisted Mr. Moore and asked him to take her home.

Since publication of the Washington Post article on November 9, 2017, Mr. Moore has repeatedly attacked Ms. Corfman despite knowing that he sexually abused Ms. Corfman when she was 14 years old.

Wishnatsky told AL.com that he was hired in 2012 by Roy Moore as a full-time clerk when Moore was reelected to the state Supreme Court.

Corfman and her mother have said that Moore first approached her as she waited outside a custody hearing at the Etowah County courthouse.

That closing message was not enough to swing the race for the Republican Alabama Senate hopeful, and a day before his Democratic opponent Doug Jones was due to be sworn in, reports said a Jewish attorney who represented Moore's son in a 2016 case had backed Jones, raised money for him and has been friends with him going back for years.

Corfman's lawsuit is an opportunity for her to pursue legal action against Moore even though the statute of limitations on the alleged assault has run out.

Ms Corfman told NBC's Today show: "Well I wouldn't exactly call it a date, I would call it a meet".

"At 14 I was not able to make those kinds of choices". "I knew God was real but I wasn't sure who he was". "It took me quite a few years to take God seriously". "After arriving at his home on the second occasion he basically laid out some blankets on the floor of his living room and proceeded to seduce me, I guess you would say".

Bronx apartment fire leaves 16 injured
At least 12 people have been injured. "Praying for a swift recovery for all those injured", Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted. The multi-storey building is situated on the corner of the Commonwealth and Bronx River avenues in Van Nest.

"Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old". Corfman said he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants.

The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

On Monday, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested that electing Mr Moore to help pass the USA president's tax reform agenda took precedence over the widespread disquiet about the allegations.

Ms. Corfman immediately told friends, including Betsy Davis, about Mr. Moore's conduct that night.

Underscoring the potential political fallout, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake, an outspoken critic of the president, was overheard on a microphone telling a Republican mayor on Saturday: "If we become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast".

Corfman's allegations came more than a month before the special election for the U.S. Senate seat on December 12. It's about whether you think God is real, and whether you're accountable to him.

"Or, worse, we'll believe you but we just won't care".
