The Birmingham News reports:
Roy Moore “likely failed” a December 2017 polygraph he took in an effort to clear his name from accusations made against him by women during the Senate race that year, according to a lawsuit filing Monday.
Attorneys for Leigh Corfman, who maintains she was sexually molested as a 14-year-old by the then-32-year-old Moore in 1979, filed the motion in Montgomery County circuit court in an ongoing effort to reopen Moore’s deposition in the defamation lawsuit she filed against him in January 2018.
At issue are the results of a polygraph test that Moore took in conjunction with a lawsuit he filed to stop the state’s certification of Sen. Doug Jones’ narrow victory over Moore in the Dec. 12, 2017, special election.
The accuser can’t take a polygraph, can’t appear to testify, can’t answer the questions, all she has left is attack the polygrapher? 3 polygraphers say I passed! I stand by my testimony-I never knew her. Why won’t the press ask why she won’t testify? https://t.co/HRBh4hBSdf
