Almost 39 years later and just before a crucial Senate campaign, a now 53 year-old Leigh Corfman alleges that the Republican candidate, a then 32 year-old Roy Moore, initiated sexual contact with her when she was only 14 years old.
Color plenty of Alabama voters more than a little skeptical.
So many, in fact, that when a Birmingham news outlet searched high and low for just one voter who believed Corfman’s allegations, they came up empty in the end.
On Friday afternoon, ABC affiliate WBMA 33/40 aired a segment featuring political reporter Lauren Walsh interviewing voters in Columbiana, Alabama about the allegations against Moore published in the Washington Post.
“It’s hard to believe the events that transpired yesterday,” said Wilsonville resident Gordon Fluker of the Post report.
Which was, according to Walsh, par for the course.
“Out of all the voters we spoke with Friday in Columbiana, we didn’t find one voter who believed the Washington Post report about Moore,” said Walsh.
Granted, Columbiana is in a mostly-Republican county that voted for Trump by an almost three-quarters margin, but voters in Shelby County also went for Moore opponent Luther Strange in the GOP primary and the runoff that followed.
In other words, to accuse them of being mere Moore sycophants would be more than a little disingenuous.
Given the fact that Corfman’s allegations are impossible to prove and quite possible to discredit, don’t be surprised if the embattled Senate candidate manages to win the race against Democrat Doug Jones in the end, helped along by a skeptical public tired of being played.
