Why I Believe Judge Roy Moore

As this nation’s first female television sportscaster,  I can tell you something about sexual harassment, although we didn’t call it that in those days.  It was either a proposition or simply boorish behavior.

My first boss, who was married, came on to me.  When I said, “Thanks but no thanks,”  he tried to get me fired.  He failed.  Then, he preceded to make my life miserable at work.  It was a cold war until I moved and went to work at another television station.

Once I had a co-worker who continually hit on me.  He was a good man and I knew it wasn’t serious, but his constant attention and suggestive remarks were annoying.   In some strange way he though this was flattering to a woman.  One day I decided to take matters in hand.  The next time it happened, I took a flying leap and landed in his arms in full view of everyone.  He was so embarrassed, he never did it again.

Working in an almost entirely all-male environment, I found most men to be honorable, kind, respectful and extremely fair.

However, in my lifetime I have seen many men destroyed by a false accusation from a woman.  Yes, if a man makes a false accusation against a woman it is assumed to be untrue, but if a woman makes a false accusation against a man he is automatically guilty unless he can prove he is innocent.  Anybody remember the Duke lacrosse team?   It happens on college campuses, in cases of domestic violence, divorce court, in the workplace and, yes, it happens in Congress.

While members of Congress often get away with murder, I find the reaction to the accusations against Moore particularly disturbing.   Most members of Congress will do anything to keep their seats.  While some carry on with staff members, lobbyists, and each other in private, publicly they are wimps when it comes to standing up to women, particularly the angry feminists in our midst.  Let one wag a finger and suggest that a law, a policy or an institution is unfair, they bend over backwards to right the perceived wrong.  I offer the feminization of the military as a case in point.

“Put women in combat!  We are as strong and tough as men!” they demanded.  Yet they want us to believe that a woman can’t tell a man in a three-piece suit, carrying a briefcase, to stuff it.

Which brings up the case of Judge Moore.  Whether or not you agree with everything he has done in his political career, you must agree that he is a man of principle.  He was twice removed from his elected office as attorney general of the state of Alabama for refusing to abide by an order that he considered unconstitutional.

Despite press reports to the contrary,  Moore has only been accused of wrongdoing by three — not nine —women and only one of the three passes the smell test. For the record, dating teenage girls is not against the law and, by all accounts from the teens who dated Moore, he was a gentleman.

So let’s examine the one serious accusation that looks somewhat credible, the case of then 14-year-old Leigh Corfman.  Ms. Corfman was a troubled teen whose parents were divorced.  Moore is said to have offered to watch the young girl (he doesn’t remember it) while her mother went to court to transfer custody to her father because (according to court documents) she was too difficult to handle.  Apparently Corfman bragged to friends that she was seeing an older man, Moore, after that.  Then, according to her story, she broke it off after he took her to his home and tried to seduce her.

Washington Post reporters went snooping for dirt, anything, on Moore and supposedly one of these friends led them to Corfman.  Is it possible that this troubled teen had a crush on Moore who was a respected young man in a very small town and made up the story to impress them?  Is it possible that this woman, who continued to have problems, actually began to believe it?

Moore has led a moral life.  Corfman not so much.  At the very least, Moore deserves his day in court.  He does not deserve to be roundly excoriated by by members of his own party, absent any proof, and asked to drop out of his Senate race at the 11th hour.

These lawmakers do this at their own peril.  From now on, any Republican running for office is fair game for baseless accusations and should expect the same treatment.

  1. I am willing to give even the leftist media types who have been accused of sexual misconduct the benefit of a doubt. And it is possible that Moore really is guilty. But, given the unsavory nature of at least two of his accusers and the fact that the handwriting in the high school yearbook doesn’t look like his, I think he is almost certainly innocent of any real wrongdoing. And consider the timing of the accusations, decades after the events allegedly took place and during an election that could move the Democrats either closer or further away from regaining control of the Senate. And then there is the source: the “Washington Post” a rag, and Gloria Allred, a man-hating, publicity-seeking leftist.

  2. No question – this was a political attack on Judge Moore because of the small positive margin the Republicans have in the Senate. And it is up to the residents of Alabama, not the spineless Republicans and others who said that Judge Moore should drop out of the Senatorial race. Knowing the opposition, I would expect any, and I mean ANY, tactic to derail Judge Moore including a sizable “fee” from the Left that would persuade some woman to transfer her unfortunate experience with some man, to Judge Moore. She could be very convincing having the actual experience but from someone other than Judge Moore. And the “fee” could be “mere peanuts” compared to the advertising campaign’s expenses and the Democrat Party benefits they expect to achieve. They are willing to compromise all standards in order to win in any election and this one is no exception. Typical “the end justifies the means” tactics and mindset.

    I appreciated the details Jane included in her article. That information fits the man I watched on TV on Thursday. I saw the whole presentation of Judge Moore in Dora, Alabama. Magnificent! The man is exceptional in his beliefs, with tons of memorized material from the Founding Fathers as well as scriptures from the Bible. Watched it on OAN (One America News, OANN.com likely has it available in their archives) and I intend to watch it again – it is captivating and BRILLIANT. All from memory with an occasional glance at written notes, and no TelePrompTer. He speaks from his heart and soul and his ethics and deep convictions are without question.

  3. I’m Not so sure I would come out inof support Mr. Moore or any other man these hedonistic days, as we live in an immoral society—where right and wrong are blurred, and men and women disrespect one another every day. However, I do stand by your statement that demands actual ‘proof’ of wrong doing.

    Personally, I think the REAL issue that should be addressed is defining abuse–versus harassment or inappropriate comments or actions. In many of the current cases publicized both the men and women are at fault! The current charges of “abuse” is an absolute, painful slap in the face to those women who have actually been abused [‘forcibly’ sexually assaulted] by men! Those woman bringing charges of “abuse” whereby a man said something suggestive, maybe even slapped her on the butt, or who allowed themselves to be used in their quest for fame–these do not define true abuse, it should be called by another name, such as harassment, even simply inappropriate—but it isn’t headline worthy or even close to a legal charge of abuse. These charges themselves are a watering down off true sexual abuse, the act, offense and pain as to what actually happens in the case of actual abuse and to the real victims–women who have actually been raped against their will.

    If women were offended in Hollywood while on the job, why didn’t they walk away [oh, in reality, their “careers” were more important than their integrity—the goal being the spotlight?] Also, why is no one talking about Bill Clinton, even one of my favorite presidents, Mr. Kennedy?? Kennedy and Clinton were serial offenders. In the past, the news gave a pass and kept their mouths shut. In these cases the women wanted the spotlight too and were willing to take the immoral plunge with these immoral men to get it. Was it wrong they were propositioned, yes, did they have to take allow the advances—NO. There’s another type of woman who aligns herself with powerful, rich, and headliner men! Women who follow athletics who in turn beat the hell out of them, but they stay; presidents, businessmen, even pastors—all to be in the spotlight of notoriety and the light of the powerful. i.e. Jackie Kennedy, why did she stay—the secret service guarded the swimming pool area in the while house while her husband dallied with women—the secret service would send Jackie away while he was tending to his sexual prowness.] Camelot?? I don’t think so. Did Jackie walk away—nope. These women wanted the spot light and did whatever it took to have it…..even all forms of abuse.

    Am I blaming women for being abused, such as reported in the Germany now—of those women being raped on the streets by the immoral aliens brought into their country— Women told their dress is inappropriate and they shouldn’t walk the streets alone or after dark as they’re provoking the actions of these men?? Absolutely not!. However, there’s a difference with the women putting themselves in positions where by their superiors are demanding or asking for sexual favors. These women in their jobs had a choice, a rape victim does not. Wronged, yes, they should have been successful without sexual favors ever entering the picture—but we live in a sin filled world. These same women bemoaning abuse, can be as much of the the problem as the men in the scenario. And, like you stated, just pointing finger is merely, “he said, she said,” where there is no physical proof, and can ruin a man and his careers!

    As for the Hollyweirds crawling out of the cracks—note they tolerated the attention when they were climbing the ladder to success and fame, and at the time were more concerned with making movies and their “15 minutes” of fame in history, rather than walking away and finding another way to make it to the top. Unlike true victims of abuse, they could walk away! I don’t believe women should ever have been put in the position of having to lie on their backs for their jobs, livelihood, or to survive with the filthy minded men that are predators—but truth be known, women have been on “their backs” being taken advantage of since the fall; abused by men in invading armies, powerful men, rich men, fathers, uncles, neighbors, boys and girls club leaders and their priests. Since sin is at the very heart of every man and woman, and sin is an element of the nature of human beings, this ugly presence will never change, as all have sinned and will continue to.

    One problem I do have with your article— stating there is no law against an older man dating a teenager. I completely disagree. A teen is just that—a teeny thinker. She looks like a woman physically, but is immature socially, sexually and hopefully, inexperienced. Especially a girl who has been raised on Disney’s concept of love—look at all the princess movies—a powerful man riding on a horse, into a girl’s life to make her a success and complete. Teen innocence and immaturity, put together with an older man is just a breeding ground for abuse. There actually is a law, not for dating teens, but for having sex with a teen until they’re 18 years old. Unfortunately, in our current immoral society, children in elementary schools are reportedly engaging in sex, I’m unsure when “innocence” is lost these days—but an older man ‘dating” a teenager—it says a lot about the “man” and his immaturity. This man is emotionally unhealthy, and a predator—I don’t care who he is! Whether this accusation is truth in the case of Mr. Moore, I have absolutely no idea [what ever happened to “innocent, until proven guilty”]—but I would not encourage grown men to be preying upon teenage girls or saying it’s “okay” to date for any reason.
