Leigh Corfman

Leigh Corfman, one of the first women to come forward and accuse Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of pursuing a sexual relationship with her when she was a teenager, responded on Monday to Moore's claim that he doesn't know her.

“I wonder how many mes he doesn’t know,” Corfman said during her first network interview on the “Today Show.”

Corfman told The Washington Post that when she was 14 years old, and Moore was in his early 30s, the then-assistant district attorney picked her up without her parents' knowledge and drove them back to his house where she alleges Moore made sexual contact with her.

Moore has denied Corfman's claims, but admitted that he may have dated women in their later teens after returning home from serving in the Vietnam War.

During the interview, Corfman also denied claims that she was paid for her story, adding that, “If anything this has cost me. I’ve had to take leave from my job.”

“I have no tickets to Tahiti. And my bank account has not flourished, if anything it has gone down because currently I am not working.”

Years later, Corfman says her interactions with Moore “took away a lot of the specialness of interactions with men.”

“It took years for me to regain a sense of confidence in myself and I felt guilty," Corfman added.
