Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman sues Moore for defamation

Roy Moore accuser Leigh Corfman sues Moore for defamation

According to the lawsuit, Corfman alleges that Roy Moore has defamed her "repeatedly and in all forms of media, calling her a liar and questioning her motivation for publicly disclosing that Mr. Moore sexually abused her in 1979 when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney". In a church speech, he dismissed the misconduct allegations against him as 'dirty politics.' Moore, who filed an unsuccessful lawsuit seeking to stop the certification of the Alabama election, submitted an affidavit saying the accusations were false and malicious and that he passed a polygraph test.

"My background is 100 percent Jewish", [Wishnatsky] said. "I knew God was real but I wasn't sure who he was", he said. "That's the term they use for a Jewish person who has accepted Christ", he told Al.com.

After that, Wishnatsky experimented with Mormonism and later became an evangelical Protestant Christian. "I had an experience of the reality of God at 33", Wishnatsky said.

Wishnatsky accepted Jesus, then later graduated from Liberty University's law school (as if you needed more evidence for how seriously he took the whole "Jesus" thing).

The cases typically argue that when the accused deny the allegations against them, they are harming the reputation of their accusers.

Wishnatsky said he admires Moore, who he believes was a victim of "character assassination" in the Senate election, which Jones won. Does that make any sense?

Also during the campaign, the Moores were accused of anti-Semitism after Roy Moore gave a radio interview in which he implied that liberal philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, is going to hell. I believe they're politically motivated.

But Kayla Moore now says that she was referring to someone else. He grew up Jewish, after all, so the claim wasn't implausible. Wishnatsky was a staff attorney at the Alabama Supreme Court from 2013 to 2016, when Roy Moore was chief justice, then joined the foundation, which advocates for religious right causes, such as opposition to LGBT rights and abortion - stances that Roy Moore famously took at the court.

She seems very eager to dismiss any claims against her husband and write them off as acts of persecution instead of attempting to learn the truth on her own.
