President Trump often uses the phrase “political witch hunt,” when referring to Democrats. Perhaps rightly so. It appears it’s open season on “non-establishment” Republicans, especially in Alabama. Case in point are these new facts about the women accusing Senate candidate, Roy Moore.
Deborah Wesson Gibson and Leigh Corfman are among several women accusing Moore of sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago. In a recent Washington Post story, Wesson alleges that he tried to date her when she was 17. Corfman alleged inappropriate touching when she was 14. Moore denies the accusations, calling the story “fake news.”
New details about both women, may prove him right.
For example, Gibson previously worked as a sign language interpreter for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. Currently, she is actively campaigning for Doug Jones. Jones is the Democrat running against Moore for Jeff Sessions vacant Senate seat. A seat, by the way, that hasn’t been occupied by Democrats in more than two decades.
Offering more damning evidence that Dems are hunting for Moore, is his wife, Kayla. In a statement Mrs. Moore says that WaPo, who endorsed Jones, is harassing their friends and family:
“The Washington Post has been calling and harassing our friends and family, trying to find garbage. We’ve had people back home telling us they are getting phone calls and when they would tell them good things, the Washington Post would ask them if they knew anything bad on him.”
Adding credibility to Mrs. Moore’s accusations against WaPo is Nancy Wells. Wells is the mother of Leigh Corfman. Speaking to a reporter, she says the newspaper persuaded her daughter to come forward. She also refutes a key detail of Corfman’s story regarding Moore contacting her daughter on the phone in her bedroom.
A phone Wells confirms, she didn’t have.
“It wasn’t done for politics, you know,” Wells replied to a question from Breitbart on the timing of the WaPo story. “She was contacted by the reporter. That’s why. It was done for personal reasons.” The 71-year-old added that her daughter would not have said anything, if not for the reporters pursuing her for a story.
Interestingly, a new poll shows conservative voters in Alabama agree the story is a fabrication. However, Jones is now leading the race overall with 48% and 42% respectively. If Jones were to win, it would be a decisive victory for Democrats ahead of the ever-so-important 2018 mid-terms.
