This Roy Moore accuser is refusing to be victim-blamed.
On Monday, Leigh Corfman joined the Today show in order to discuss the accusations she made against the Alabama senatorial candidate.
Earlier this month, Corfman told the Washington Post that Moore engaged in inappropriate sexual contact with her when she was only 14.
And Leigh is certainly coming out swinging against her critics as she made it abundantly clear to co-anchor Savannah Guthrie that she told many people about the sexual misconduct. Leigh shared:
“I did tell people. My family knew, family friends knew, my friends knew, I spent a lot of time every time he came up, railing against him and what he had done to me when I was 14 years old.”
On why she abstained from going public for decades, Corfman explained:
“My children were small, I was a single parent, and when you’re in that situation, you do everything you can to protect your own.”
Fair point. Not to mention, locals in Moore’s hometown of Gadsden, Alabama have said his behavior towards young girls was already known throughout the community. The judge was even banned from his local mall!!
And yet no one took any legal action…
In regards to the unsavory encounter with Roy, Leigh recalled to Guthrie:
“I wouldn’t exactly call it a date. I would say it was a meet. At 14 I was not dating. At 14, I was not able to make those kind of choices… I was a 14-year-old child trying to play in an adult’s world, and he was 32 years old.”
How awful. Be sure to watch Leigh’s entire appearance for yourself (below)!
