Unsuccessful Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore‘s resources have been depleted and he is urging his supporters to contribute to his legal defense fund.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, Moore unveiled details about his personal battle with lawyers from Washington D. C. and San Francisco who have hired a firm in Birmingham, Ala. to bring yet another legal action against him and to, in his words, “ensure that he never fights again.”
According to AL.com, the lawsuit was filed against Moore by Leigh Corfman, one of the women who accused Moore of sexual misconduct when she was a teenager. Corfman filed a defamation suit against Moore and his campaign, saying Moore disgraced her by saying she was immoral and a liar.
Moore says the full legal fees could cost over $100,000, that his current resources have been depleted; he is struggling to make ends meet.
In the post, Moore gives several reasons he believes he’s being targeted by these firms. “The liberal media, in association with some who want to destroy our Country do not want my influence in the 2018 elections and are doing everything they can to stop me.”
“Gays, lesbians, and transgenders have joined forces with those who believe in abortion, sodomy, and destruction of all that we hold dear. Unless we stand together we will lose our Country.”
He goes on to tell his Christian supporters that they, “can no longer afford to remain silent in these ‘perilous’ times.” and that they “must fight, an appeal to the God of Heaven is all that is left us!”
Moore ends his post with an appeal to conservatives; saying, “the political Left is filled with men and women whose sole aim in life is to overthrow our God-ordained rights which are guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. It is your responsibility and mine to stand up to this vile encroachment on our rights, and defend that for which the Founding Fathers sacrificed so greatly. Please…help me defeat, once and for all, those who would destroy America in order to usher in their anti-Christian ‘kingdom.’ May the Lord richly bless you as you stand with me in this critical fight!”
