Here is the first interview with Roy Moore’s accuser. What do you think of what she has to say NOW?
Leigh Corfman says that she was a ‘14-year old child trying to play in an adult’s world and he was 32-years old‘.
Corfman appeared on Today and gave her side of the story.
Moore has consistently denied the claims.
‘It wasn’t a date. It was a meet. At 14, I was not dating. At 14, I was not able to make those kind of choices,’ said Corfman.
‘I met him around the corner from my house. My mother did not know. And he took me to his home.’
She then said: ‘After arriving at his home, on the second occasion that I went with him, he basically laid out some blankets on the floor of his living room and proceed to – seduce me, I guess you would say.
‘And during the course of that, he removed my clothing. He left the room and came back in, wearing his white underwear. And he touched me over my clothing, what was left of it. And he tried to get me to touch him, as well. And at that point, I pulled back and said that I was not comfortable.’
She said that after the incident she told two of her good friends and then another friend, and they told her that it wasn’t a good idea to be with an older man like that, so she made excuses the next time Moore called her.
Corfman says that she was open with people about the incident over the years, including right after it.
She also addresses why she hasn’t brought forward the allegations earlier.
Corfman says that the incident with Moore has affected her relationships with men for years.
Are you finding it difficult to balance the presumption of innocence with allowing the victim to have her say?
As Americans, we value both.
These situations are so difficult because they are often a He Said/She Said with no way of verifiable proof one way or the other.
We want to be sympathetic to victims of sexual assault and ensure justice for them.
This makes it difficult to determine who to believe.
On the one hand is the victim, the other the defendant that is to be presumed innocent.
What do you think about it?
Let us know in the comments.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
