By now, most of our readers have heard the allegations put forward by The Washington Post against Alabama’s former chief justice and Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.
The report cited four different women who claimed to have been approached by a 30-something-year-old Moore when they were teenagers in the late 1970s.
The media, Democrats and even a number of establishment Republicans are now demanding that Moore step aside from his Senate run, which would essentially hand the open seat over to his Democrat opponent.
But in an exclusive interview with an executive at Conservative Tribune, a woman in Alabama identified only as “Beth” has shared her account of working with Roy Moore as a teenager, and her story differs quite a bit from the narrative put forward by the liberal media. Beth gave permission for her remarks to be shared and the only changes made were to grammar and punctuation.
“Yes, I absolutely believe (the) Judge is innocent!” Beth declared. “I’ve known him and his family for years. I was a teenager when I first started working in his campaign. And he always honored and respected me and all the others. I always felt safe around him, I never once felt uncomfortable.”
“And even if I didn’t know him personally, I would find it suspicious that these women are just now coming out with this,” she continued. “He’s been running for office for the past 17 years and been a judge for even longer. So why, if this did happen … why didn’t they come out about this before now? They’ve had plenty of chances.”
“I just find it odd with as many times as he has run for office over the past several years none of this has come out,” she added. “I don’t think it is a coincidence that all this is being said one month before the election. Polls were showing Moore way ahead of Jones, then next thing you know all this s*** is coming out.”
Beth explained how she worked closely with Moore during his first campaign to become chief justice, as it was only her and the campaign manager in the Birmingham, Alabama office, with a few others working on the campaign from Gadsden.
“So I worked real close with him,” she said. “He invited all the staff over for cookouts and dinners and stuff at his house. So if he was like that he had plenty of opportunities.”
Beth stated that she also worked on some of his other campaigns for office, though to a lesser extent than before, and noted that she stayed in touch with him and his family for years afterward, even volunteering her time at Moore’s Foundation of Moral Law.
“He even tried to hook me up with one of his lawyers that worked for him,” Beth revealed. “It did not work out, but I was close with them.”
“I went to a play with that guy and the Moore’s and others around Christmas time,” she added. “All this was years ago, but still … I know him enough to know he is not like that.”
As to why it appeared as though Moore had been targeted by a “hit piece” from the liberal media and establishment Republicans, Beth replied, “It’s because he stands up for God and biblical truths and the Constitution. They don’t want him in office because he won’t be in anybody’s pocket or their lap dog.”
This young woman worked for years with Judge Roy Moore — at times with few, if any, other people around. If Moore really was some sort of predatory older man looking to take advantage of innocent and naive teenage girls, he had all of the opportunity to do so with Beth … yet he didn’t.
Beth’s recollection of her time with Moore significantly undercuts the liberal media narrative against the judge, a narrative that was on shaky ground to begin with.
The bulk of the allegations against Moore put forth by The Post were from a woman named Leigh Corfman, who even The Post had to admit had credibility issues stemming from her turbulent background.
But on top of that, an exclusive interview from Breitbart with Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, casts even more doubt on her unverifiable story.
Corfman had claimed that she gave Moore her phone number and that he had called her to arrange a date on the phone in her bedroom. But Wells revealed that Corfman didn’t have a phone in her bedroom during that period of time.
Perhaps more troubling is Wells’ statement that Corfman never had any intentions of going public with this story, but was convinced to do so by reporters from the Post, who in their piece acknowledge interviewing Corfman at least six different times, potentially even pressuring her to speak out.
Wells made it abundantly clear that it was only because she had been contacted by reporters that she decided to publicly share her tale, and when asked about a possible motivation for doing so, Wells replied, “It wasn’t done for politics, you know. It was done for personal reasons. And it wouldn’t have been done if the reporters hadn’t contacted my daughter.”
As for the claim that “politics” played no role in her decision to speak out against Moore, some enlightening information uncovered by GotNews about Corfman’s son, Garner Polston, may undermine that claim somewhat.
A quick perusal of Polston’s social media postings revealed that he was proudly anti-Trump, made disparaging remarks about former Alabama Sen. and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and made a habit of sharing anti-law enforcement, anti-religion and pro-atheism posts from others.
Obviously, the actions of the son can’t necessarily be pinned on the mother, but she was also said to have made anti-law enforcement comments in the past, such as when police shut down a prom party her son had attended.
As for Judge Roy Moore himself, he has consistently denied the allegations put forward against him, and said they “are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.”
Moore added, “This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”
As a final note, more than a few skeptical people have taken note of the timing of this story being dropped, roughly one month ahead of a critical special election and mere days after ballots had been finalized and there was no way Moore could be replaced as the Republican nominee.
Those on the right who are demanding Moore step aside from his candidacy — even as none of the allegations against him can be proven or verified — are essentially demanding that he concede defeat and hand the seat formerly occupied by Sessions to a Democrat that doesn’t represent a majority of Alabama voters.
We have seen this sort of hit job from the liberal media before — who can forget the numerous accusers against then-candidate Donald Trump a month before the election who strangely fell silent weeks later — but the people have grown wise to these kinds of shenanigans and smear pieces, and they don’t work as well as they used to anymore.
On Dec. 12, voters in Alabama will decide whether they believe Moore or his accuser from nearly 40 years ago.
