Former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore says his financial resources have been “depleted” and is making a public plea to help fight a civil suit brought by a woman who accused him of molesting her as a teen.
“I now face another vicious attack from lawyers in Washington D. C., and San Francisco who have hired one of the biggest firms in Birmingham, Alabama, to bring another legal action against me and ensure that I never fight again,” Moore posted on Facebook.
The suit is being filed by attorneys for Leigh Corfman, who has accused Moore of touching her inappropriately when she was 14 and he was in his 30s. Corfman says Moore and his campaign defamed her as he denied the allegations.
Moore was the GOP nominee in the special Senate election in conservative-leaning Alabama. He was expected to win against Democrat Doug Jones until allegations of sexual misconduct from roughly four decades earlier derailed his campaign.
Since losing the election in December 2017, Moore reportedly has sent multiple emails to supporters seeking donations.
The link on the post Thursday indicated that Moore had raised about $32,000 toward a goal of $250,000.
