Leigh Corfman at 14 in 1979
The Washington Post today published another blockbuster expose of yet another child sex predator — GOP senatorial candidate Roy Moore.
The lengthy and well-researched piece identifies four separate women who were solicited by Mr. Moore as teenagers. The youngest, Leigh Corfman, was just 14 when the then-32 year old DA began hitting on her:
Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.
“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.
This from the same party that brought us Greg Gianforte, R-MONTANA, body-slamming reporters.
This party has been pandering to the most base and most evil of human instincts for decades, and we see the results.
Yes, of course there will be the required aint-it-awful cluck-clucking from embarrassed Republicans. That has about as much substance as the “prayers” they offer after each bloody massacre. It means NOTHING.
This is what happens when a party yields to the temptation to pander. A party with no values and no integrity that panders to the worst instincts of a suffering nation ends up with politicians who have no values, no integrity, and who pander to the worst instincts of their colleagues.
By their fruits we know them.
