Why It's Important That Leigh Corfman Keeps Talking About Roy Moore

The first to come forward said she was 14 when Moore, then in his 30s, undressed her and touched her inappropriately.

"I am woefully disappointed by those who call themselves people of faith and yet continue to support a sexual predator", she said in a statement. "I felt like I was the one that was to blame", she said.

"At 14 I was not able to make those kinds of choices".

In a particularly impactful moment, Corfman described the lasting effect that her encounter with Moore had on her life.

"At that point I pulled back and said that I was not comfortable and I got dressed and he took me home", Ms Corfman said.

She had told the newspaper that Moore took off her "shirt and trousers and removed his clothes", touched her over her bra and underpants and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear before she ended the encounter.

In the coming days, Mr Moore allegedly picked up Ms Corfman around the corner from her home, and drove her to his house in the woods where he sexually assaulted her, the newspaper claims. Two women have accused Franken of groping them. "I remember her name, it was Kayla Kisor. KK". "It took away a lot of the specialness out of interactions with men", she said.

This was in full view today when White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on the normally friendly confines of the very pro-administration program Fox & Friends, which seemed to actually confront the Trump administration over their lack of political leadership in the senate race in Alabama between Judge Roy Moore (and his numerous allegations of sexual misconduct over the past few decades) and the Democratic candidate Doug Jones. But the deadline to withdraw from the contest has long since passed and Republican calls for a write-in candidacy of anyone as an alternative to Moore have faltered.

They might take pressure off the Senate hopeful, who has come under fire as more sexual misconduct allegations pile up against him. The election is to fill the last three years of the Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions, who resigned from it to join President Donald Trump's Cabinet as attorney general, the country's top law enforcement position.

In the almost two weeks since the White House put out this statement, five more women have come forward with allegations against Moore.

Trump had pushed for Republicans to nominate Luther Strange, the appointed senator now holding the seat, but when Strange lost to Moore in a party primary in September, Trump voiced his support for Moore on Twitter.

It's a departure from just two weeks ago, when the White House sought to distance itself from Moore and even suggested he might need to step down.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones takes questions from reporters at a fish-fry campaign event November 18 in Birmingham, Ala.

Sanders, however, stopped short of calling on Moore to step aside on Thursday when asked about the allegations.
