Former Alabama Chief Justice and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, along with his attorneys, will hold a press conference regarding what they call “false” allegations of sexual misconduct made against him during the campaign for U.S. Senate last fall.
Moore has vehemently denied the allegations against him, calling them “politically motivated,” “completely false” and “malicious.”
This will be Moore’s first news conference since December’s special election where Democrat Doug Jones bested him, thus becoming the first Democratic U.S. Senator from Alabama in a quarter-century.
Earlier this month Moore filed a counterclaim for slander and defamation against Leigh Corfman, who accused him of making unwanted sexual advances after shed filed a defamation lawsuit against him in January.
Moore claims Corman’s allegations caused “irrevocable damage” to his reputation “that affected the outcome of the Senate election in December 2017.”
The press conference will be held at the Etowah County Commission Chambers at 3 p.m.
