Hannity Presses Roy Moore on Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Sean Hannity aired an interview he held with Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.) on his radio show, in which he questioned the Senate candidate about accusations of sexual misconduct.
"The allegations are completely false... and misleading," Moore said. "It hurts me personally. I'm a father. I have one daughter, I have five granddaughters. I have a special concern for the protection of young ladies."
Hannity asked Moore about one of the accusers, Leigh Corfman, who said she was 14 while he was 32 at the time.
"I don't know Miss Corfman from anybody," Moore said. "I believe [the accusations] are politically motivated."
He said that he knew one of the other accusers, Debbie Wesson Gibson, as a friend, but did not recall dating her.
"After 40 years of public service... this has never been brought up it has never even been mentioned," he said.
Moore said it is suspect that the allegations come one month before his special election against Democrat Doug Jones, to take the seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Moore said that people like Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who called for him to bow out of the race immediately, would "not make good judges" because the criminal-case standard is "innocent until proven guilty."
"They don't like my acknowledgment that there is a God," Moore said of his critics. "We refused to debate [Jones] because of [his] very liberal stance on transgenderism."
Hannity pressed Moore on the facts of the case, and what he would think if he were not the subject.
"If you abuse a 14-year-old girl, you shouldn't be a Senate candidate," Moore responded.
