A woman has come forward with allegations claiming Roy Moore, the Republican nominee in an Alabama Senate seat race, pursued a sexual relationship and sexually assaulted her when she was 14-years-old and Moore was 32-years-old.

Leigh Corfman and her mother recounted to The Washington Post that in 1979, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, Moore offered to watch 14-year-old Corfman while her mother attended a child custody hearing.

Moore then allegedly asked Corfman for her number and days later picked her up around the corner from her house and drove her deep into the woods to his home.

According to the report, Corfman alleges Moore kissed her and complimented her looks during one meeting at his house and attempted to engage in sexual acts during another:

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.

The Post also found three other women who say Moore pursued them when he was in his early 30s and they were between 16 and 18. None of them said Moore forced them into any sexual acts.

Prior to the publication of the Post's story detailing the allegations, Breitbart News appeared to have been tipped off and seemingly called the outlet's motivations into question.

Moore also issued a denial of the accusations to Breitbart News, “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.”
