Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has faced a mountain of accusations in the days leading up to his and with each passing inconsistency is rapidly losing support on both the left and the right, with Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett being the latest to call out the “implausible denials and obstinate attitude” from Moore and argued voters should “reject” him at the polls.
So Moore will surely stay in the race, but he should be repudiated by voters at the polls on Election Day, Dec. 12. His implausible denials and obstinate attitude only do damage to him and the Republican Party. It is his sad legacy, but richly deserved.
Moore was grilled by Sean Hannity back on November 10th, performed poorly, and has not given an interview about it since. In the meantime, his first accuser, Leigh Corfman, finally gave her first interview. Her credibility is aided by the fact that it was the Washington Post who sought her out, not the other way around. She also only agreed to do the interview if the Post found other accusers, which they did.
Particularly disturbing in the interview is Moore’s complete comfort and willingness, at age 32, to pursue someone only 14 years old.
“He basically laid out some blankets on the living room floor and seduced me,” Corfman said. “He tried to get me to touch him as well. At that point I pulled back and said I was not comfortable, and he took me home. But I was 14 years old trying to play in an adults world.”

The Hannity interview of Moore, however, was strinkingly different. Moore was wishy-washy when attempting to answer direct questions.
For example, when Hannity asked him if, when he was 32-years-old, he pursued teenagers. Moore first responded: “If I did, I’m not going to dispute anything.”
Hannity pressed the issue again, but this time Moore changed his tune, saying, “I don’t remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother.”
After the inconsistent answers, Hannity dug in, apparently looking for the tie breaker. This time, Moore denied ever dating teenagers when he was 32.
So which is it? Yes, maybe, or no? Moore gave three completely different answers in the span of a few short minutes. Corfman, meanwhile, seems to be very clear on the issue.
