Roy Moore, one of the creepiest men to have ever almost landed in the Capitol building, is now suing four women for defamation. The Republican, who ran and lost an Alabama special election for Senate in December, filed the lawsuit on Monday, reports Jezebel.
Before the election, Moore was accused of having sexual relationships with each of the four women while they were teenagers and he was in his thirties. The accusations were revealed in an investigation by the Washington Post in November.
Moore's complaint said that the women—Leigh Corfman, Debbie Gibson, Tina Johnson, and Beverly Nelson—committed slander and libel against him by "making statements which were false, malicious, and made with intentional or reckless disregard of the truth and with the intent that those statements be published to others, including through state and national media."
The suit continued to say, "Those statements caused harm to the reputation and character of Judge Moore and also to his wife Kayla, lowered their standing in the community, and discouraged members of the community from associating with them."
Corfman accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 14 years old. She released a statement through her attorney Neil Roman that read, "These latest claims by the Moore camp have no more merit than those he has made before. Leigh Corfman stands by the accuracy of every one of her statements about Mr. Moore's sexual abuse of her when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. Ms. Corfman is no longer a teenager and is not going to let Mr. Moore victimize her again."
Back in January, Corfman filed a suit against Moore. The suit claimed that Moore and his campaign "have defamed Ms. Corfman, repeatedly and in all forms of media, calling her a liar and questioning her motivation for publicly disclosing that Mr. Moore sexually abused her in 1979 when she was a 14-year-old high school freshman and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney."
