Over the last two weeks you have been assaulted with a coordinated attack on the character of Roy Moore. Over the next two weeks we will present the facts directly to you that you will not see in the media. We will dispel the charges and inform you of why you must go to the polls to elect Roy Moore.
The initial accusations from Ms.Leigh Corfman were that Moore had encounters with her when she was 14 years old. Roy Moore flatly denies the allegations. He clearly stated he does not even know Ms. Corfman.
Corfman asserts that Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, watched her while her mother went into a courtroom for a custody hearing, which took place in early 1979. Her parents were divorced, and the hearing concerned custody of Corfman. According to Corfman, Moore asked her for her phone number, which she gave him. She said Moore later called her on a phone that Corfman had in her bedroom.
Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden. Corfman claimed Moore took her to his home, and she claimed that when she told Moore that she felt nervous about the situation, he took her home. She said he soon called again and picked her up at the same spot.
THE FACTS SHOW THIS CANNOT BE TRUE:
There was a hearing on February 21, 1979, but the Washington Post failed to tell readers that at that February 21, 1979, court case, Corfman’s mother voluntarily gave up custody of Corfman to Corfman’s father. The two had been divorced since 1974. The custody case was amicable and involved a joint petition by both parents.
The article also did not inform its readers that as a result of the joint petition, the court ordered Leigh to move to her father’s house. Court documents show the father’s address in Ohatchee, and not in Gadsden, where her mother lived and where Corfman says the meetings with Moore took place.
The Washington Post said Corfman spoke to Moore on her phone in her bedroom, and they made plans for him to pick her up at Alcott Road and Riley Street, around the corner from her house.
The problem with that account is that particular intersection was almost a mile away from her mother’s house at the time and would have been across a major thoroughfare. And, since she was now in her father’s custody, she would not have been living with her mother in Gadsden, anyway. She would have been living with her father in another town. Corfman’s mother has also stated that Corfman did not have a telephone in her room.
One would think the media would be interested in these facts that prove the accusations are not true. Alabama voters deserve the truth, and we will deliver it to you over the next few days. You must get to the polls for Roy Moore on December 12 and bring 3 folks with you.
