Monday has brought new proof of just how depraved Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore truly is.
First, Beverly Young Nelson said at a press conference that Moore had given her a ride in his car when she was just 16 and attempted to rape her. According to Nelson:
“Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me and putting his hands on my breasts.
“He began squeezing my neck, attempting to force my head onto his crotch. I continued to struggle. I thought that he was going to rape me.”
And now a report in The New Yorker alleges that Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall when he was an assistant district attorney “because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls.” The report goes on to quote a Gadsden police officer who recalled:
“The general knowledge at the time when I moved here was that this guy is a lawyer cruising the mall for high-school dates. I heard from one girl who had to tell the manager of a store at the mall to get Moore to leave her alone.”
Another former police officer said he had voted for Moore in the past, but his comments since the recent allegations came out have left him very upset with the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court:
“The thing about how he’s never dated anybody without their mother’s permission, that appalled me. That made me want to throw up. Why would you need someone’s permission to date somebody?”
Greg Legat, who was an employee at the mall in the late 1970s, said he believes the Judge and Senate candidate was banned from the mall in 1979, the same year Leigh Corfman alleges that Moore molested her. Legat said he had a conversation with a mall security guard not long after he was banned from the Gadsden Mall. Legat remembered that the guard, who was also a police officer, told him:
“‘If you see Roy, let me know. He’s banned from the mall. If you see Moore here, tell me. I’ll take care of him.’”
Moore has repeatedly denied all of the women’s allegations against him, saying Monday calling them “fake news.”
