Leigh Corfman, one of the women who accused failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, is suing Moore and his campaign for defamation due to the sharp personal attacks she encountered after coming forward with her allegations. The lawsuit, seen by Reuters, seeks a judgment of defamation, a public apology, and legal costs.

Moore and his campaign committee "have defamed Ms. Corfman, repeatedly and in all forms of media, calling her a liar and questioning her motivation for publicly disclosing that Mr. Moore sexually abused her in 1979 when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney".

Representatives of his campaign could not immediately be reached for comment on Thursday.

Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman spoke to the "Today" show November 20, following allegations she made in The Washington Post that U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore seduced and molested her when she was 14.

Moore, a Republican, lost the race to Doug Jones, the first Alabama Democrat elected to the U.S. Senate in 25 years. Several publications, including the Jewish publication Forward and the Washington Examiner, have claimed that the attorney she was referring to was Richard Jaffe, a Jewish attorney who represented Roy and Kayla's son, Caleb Moore, in a case several years ago.

New Year's Supermoon is a Wolf Moon
As the New Year kicks in, sky-watchers have started gearing up for two supermoons that will offer some exquisite night sky views. The second supermoon in a single month, nicknamed "blue supermoon", occurs every two and a half year on average.


Moore, the homophobic former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, called Corfman's allegations "politically motivated", "completely false", and "malicious". The lawsuit was filed a day after Jones was sworn in as a member of the Senate. This includes Moore's defense that he never knew or met Corfman.

The lawsuit also pointed to the legal filing by Moore and his campaign on December 27, 2017 that was an effort to stop the election results from being certified by the state of Alabama. In a church speech, he dismissed the misconduct allegations against him as "dirty politics".

"Instead, the lawsuit said, "Moore continued his attacks, accusing Ms. Corfman of lying and having improper purposes".

According to the lawsuit, Corfman is not asking for legal compensation.
