Leigh Corfman, who accused failed Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of molesting her when she was just 14 and he was 32, filed a defamation lawsuit against him on Thursday, Al.com reported.
Moore declared "one of our attorneys is a Jew" at a December campaign event before the Alabama Senate special election, explaining how her husband is not a bigot. News outlets including the Jewish Forward and the Washington Examiner have said that the candidate's wife was referring to Richard Jaffe, a Jewish lawyer who represented the couple's son, Caleb Moore, when he was charged with drug possession several years ago.
Moore's lawyer declined to comment to WaPo on the lawsuit against his client and the campaign. Corfman said he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants. The lawsuit was filed a day after Jones was sworn in as a member of the Senate.
"Mr. Moore sexually abused me when I was only 14 years old", Corfman said.

Moore repeatedly tried to discredit Corfman, and the other women, throughout the campaign.
"These allegations are completely false and misleading", Moore said during an appearance on Sean Hannity's radio show shortly after the Post bombshell.
As a natural result of Mr. Moore's and the Moore Campaign Committee's defamatory statements, Ms. Corfman was forced to take a leave of absence from her job until after the election, resulting in lost wages and further economic damages capable of being measured in money in an amount to be proven at trial. "Judge hired him while Chief Justice, then I hired him at the Foundation", she added, referring to the Foundation for Moral Law, which was founded by Roy and Kayla Moore. They ignored my requests to stop attacking me and to acknowledge the truth. "By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable".
