Roy Moore Denies Allegations, Senate Race Tightens

From the Daily Wire:

“On Friday, Sean Hannity hosted Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore on his national radio show, where Hannity grilled him on allegations that he molested a 14-year-old girl when he was 32 and dated multiple teenagers during that period. Moore flatly denied knowing the 14-year-old girl, and suggested that he didn’t remember having dated teenagers at that age.

“These allegations are completely false and misleading,” Moore said. “But more than anything it hurts me personally because you know I’m a father, I have one daughter, I have five granddaughters, and I have a special concern for the protections of young ladies. This is really hard to get on radio and explain this. These allegations are just completely false.””

With regard to Leigh Corfman, Moore denied knowing her. “I don’t know Ms. Corfman from anybody, I never talked to her, I never had any contact with her. Allegations of sexual misconduct with her are completely false, I believe they’re politically motivated. I believe they were brought only to stop a very successful campaign. And that’s what they’re doing. I’ve never known this woman or anything. With regard to the other girls, you understand this is 40 years ago, after my return from the military, I dated a lot of young ladies.””

The campaign bombshell has narrowed or erased Moore’s lead in some polls, but his fundraising has actually seen a pop as supporters double down against what they view as a coordinated political hit job.
