At a news conference held in Etowah County, his attorney confirmed they have filed a legal complaint in Etowah County. That complaint centers on Richard Hagadorn, Margaret Corfman, Debbie Gibson, Beverly Nelson, and Tina Johnson. Moore and his legal teams claim that $40 million dollars was spent in an effort to beat him.

The Birmingham Herald reports:

Moore’s campaign for the Senate was marred by accusations made by several women against Moore of unwanted romantic and sexual advances. The women said they were in their teens and Moore was in his 30s during their encounters.

The most serious accusation came from Leigh Corfman, who said when she was 14, Moore – then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney — took her to his home in rural Etowah County, removed her clothing and touched her over her underwear.

Corfman also said Moore guided her hand to touch him over his underwear. Corfman filed a defamation lawsuit against Moore in January and Moore filed a counter lawsuit against Corfman in April.
