Accuser Sues Roy Moore for Defamation

One of the women who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct is suing Moore and his campaign for defamation. Leigh Corfman is seeking a public apology from Moore for the ex-Republican Senate candidate’s public attacks on her credibility. She is not seeking compensation except for legal costs. Corfman alleged that Moore sexually pursued her when she was just 14 years old and he was in his late 20s. Moore has still refused to concede to Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), who was sworn in on Wednesday, citing unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud.
