Do you remember years ago when pet rocks were a fad and millions of people were suckered into buying a rock, many of which were painted or decorated and then referred them as pet rocks? Before that, there was the Beatle’s and surfer fads, UFO fad where thousands of people were suddenly reporting seeing UFOs or being abducted by aliens.
The popular fad going around America is the ‘me too’ fad where it seems to be fashionable to accuse someone of sexual abuse, abuse or rape. It started when public allegations were made against movie studio mogul Harvey Weinstein and has spread to hundreds of others, including actors, actresses, singers, producers, politicians and teachers.
In the latest ‘me too’ allegation, a 53-year-old woman is accusing Roy Moore of a sexual encounter that took place 39-years ago when she was just 14.
Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is firing back after The Washington Post published the account of a woman who claims the former judge and staunch social conservative initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 – allegations that have rocked the race in the final stretch.
The Post story centered on allegations made by Leigh Corfman, now 53. She told the newspaper that Moore, then an assistant district attorney, first approached her in 1979 outside a courtroom in Alabama where she was sitting with her mother. On another occasion, she said Moore, then 32, took her to his home in the woods and kissed her.
During a subsequent visit, Corfman reportedly claimed he took off her shirt and pants; touched her over her bra and underwear; and guided her hand to his underwear. She said the two did not have sexual intercourse, and that she ended up getting dressed and asking Moore to take her home, according to the Post…
One has to ask shy now if not for the purpose of political smearing to keep him winning the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. The Alabama special election will be held on Dec. 12. Why did she wait so long? Why didn’t she make the accusation when Moore ran for the state Supreme Court on two different occasions? None of the posts on this allegation identify whether or not the woman making the allegation is a Democrat or Republican, but it does cause the question to be asked?
