Montgomery’s NBC affiliate reports:
One of Roy Moore’s accusers has filed a defamation lawsuit against the failed Senate candidate and his campaign. In the lawsuit filed in Montgomery County Circuit Court on Thursday, Leigh Corfman claims Moore and his campaign defamed her repeatedly after she told the Washington Post that Moore sexually abused her in 1979.
“Since publication of the Washington Post article on November 9, 2017, Mr. Moore has repeatedly attacked Ms. Corfman despite knowing that he sexually abused Ms. Corfman when she was 14 years old. At a minimum, Mr.Moore made his false denials with reckless disregard of the truth.”
The suit seeks legal costs and a public apology. (Tipped by JMG reader Scott)
