Senator Roy Moore has always been a controversial figure from Alabama for his fringe political views and alliance with Steve Bannon. Now, he has been shunned further from the political mainstream over allegations that he sexually assaulted several women, including one minor. Moore finally broke his silence when he sat down with Sean Hannity on Fox News to discuss these allegations.
“Well Sean first let me say this these allegations are completely false, false and misleading. But more than that it hurts me personally because you know I’m a father I have one daughter I have five grand daughters and I have a special concern for protection of young ladies. This is this is really hard to get on the radio and explain this and as these allegations are just completely false,” Moore said.
“I don’t know Miss Corfman from anybody. I never talked to or never had any contact with her. Allegations of sexual misconduct with her are completely false. I believe they are politically motivated. I believe they’re brought on to stop a very successful campaign. That’s what they’re doing. I’ve never known this woman or anything with regard to the other girls. You understand this is 40 years ago after my return from the military, I dated a lot of young ladies. I do recognize however the names of two these young ladies, Debbie Wesson and Gloria Thacker, which they have a maiden…that’s their maiden name,” he continued.
Moore continued skittishly, repeating that he does not remember many of the women charging him with sexual assault, let alone specific dates.
At one point, Hannity asked him, “At that time in your life…Let me ask you this you do remember these girls would it be unusual for you as a 32 year old guy to have dated a woman as young as 17? That would be a 15 year difference or a girl 18. Do you remember dating girls that young at that time?”
Moore responded, “Not generally, no. If did, you know, I’m not going to dispute anything but I don’t remember anything like that.”
