Leigh Corfman, who accused Judge Roy Moore of sexual misconduct during the 2017 U.S. Senate election in Alabama, expressed disdain for Christian supporters of Judge Moore calling them “bible thumpers” in text messages exclusively obtained by Big League Politics.
The text messages were revealed as a result of the discovery process in the defamation suit that Corfman brought against Moore for denying her claims of sexual misconduct.
The text messages include conversations between Corfman and her friends, attorneys, and reporters as many as 40 days before the Washington Post story in which the Judge was accused of sexual misconduct.
“[Corfman] began talking to people ‘months’ before the Washington Post article was published,” the motion said.
This revelation that Corfman was talking with people for months before November 9th 2017 has led some to question her role in the development of the Post story.
Corfman, it turns out, had a lot to say in the immediate aftermath of her public accusation that derailed Moore’s U.S. Senate campaign. Texts revealed in the motion suggest that Corfman’s accusations were part of premeditated political operation to disrupt Moore’s campaign, planned for quite some time before she went public with her story, leading some to question whether the claims were organic, or part of a plot to sabotage the Judge.
Interestingly, Corfman still refuses to sit for a deposition in a suit she brought against Judge Moore in which she claimed defamation against Moore for the simple act of disputing her claim.
The document includes thousands of text message exhibits between Corfman and confidantes, many of which are questionably redacted.
BLP plans to release the texts in batches. The following texts all came after Corfman’s story was public.
In a group text with four other people, Corfman said the following:
“Bastard. A morally defunct bastard… You forgot that part. I haven’t read the wsj article, but it blows my mind at the bible thumpers that come out of the woodwork when his name is involved. Disturbing to say the least.”
Texts from the other members of the group are redacted, and do not appear in the document. Names and phone numbers of the group members are also redacted.
Texts between Corfman and another friend seem to reveal that Corfman has skeletons in her past that she is hoping to keep under wraps.
“Please remember that anything I know is family. I will not repeat it to others. I hope all goes well for you. That is in your way back past!!!!” the friend texted.
“Honey, I know. Did you read the story? I’m getting calls left and right. I didn’t mean to cut you off my son was on the phone. I love you so much!” Corfman replied.
Corfman is still refusing to be deposed under oath. The only full account of her accusations was published in The Washington Post.
More to come on this story in the near future.
