Huntsville’s ABC affiliate reports:
Roy Moore has sent an email to supporters asking them to donate to a “Legal Defense Fund.” He says he needs the money to fight Leigh Corfman in court. Corfman says she had a sexual encounter with Moore when she was 14 and he was 32. Moore called Corfman a liar all through the campaign while his allies insinuated she was being paid to make the accusation.
She is suing Moore, wanting the court to force him to “retract all defamatory statements made against Ms. Corfman, to publicly apologize for these defamatory statements, and to refrain from making further defamatory statements.” It also asks that Moore be forced to pay the legal costs of the suit and “provide further relief as permitted by law and as the Court deems appropriate.”
According the Moore’s money beg, George Soros, Mitch McConnell, and the Washington Post were behind the campaign to “slander my reputation and character and steal a Senate election from the People of Alabama.”
The above-linked story notes that the first time Moore launched a legal defense fund, during the Ten Commandments monument case, that money ended up being used to create the Foundation For Moral Law, his hate group which openly advocates for instituting a Christian theocracy in which courts and governments are bound by “biblical law.”
To date the Foundation has paid Moore more than $1 million in salary and created jobs for his wife and nine-times-arrested son, Caleb. (Tipped by JMG reader Scott)
