Moore Accuser’s Former Lawyer’s Firm has Ties to Democrat Party

By Jerry A. Kane

Leigh Corfman, the main accuser of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, was, until recently, represented by a lawyer whose law firm has ties to the state’s Democrat Party.

Corfman, who has accused Moore of molesting her 38 years ago in 1979 when she was 14 years old, had been, until very recently, represented by K. Edward Sexton II, a partner in the law firm Gentle Turner Sexton and Harbison LLC.

Sexton’s Alabama law firm, located in Riverchase, an upscale section of the Birmingham suburb, Hoover, is known for mediating and administering multi-billion and multi-million dollar mass tort and class action cases.

The eight-lawyer firm is headed by founding partner Edgar Gentle III, the current Treasurer of the state’s Democrat Party. Gentle’s professional biography says he’s created and administered over $2 Billion in settlements and lists Sexual Assault Civil Tort among his several practice areas.

So, how does 53 year-old Corfman, who has a history of financial problems and bankruptcies and works as a customer service representative at a payday loan business, end up with a lawyer from a firm that specializes in the administration of mass tort and class action settlements and is tied at the hip to the state’s Democrat Party?

For that matter, why would Sexton or his law firm take a case like Corfman’s in the first place? And if he or his firm was paid for services rendered, who paid the bill? And why, pray tell, is he no longer representing her; in fact, when exactly did Sexton become Corfman’s lawyer to being with?

The Washington Post (WAPO) was first to publish Corfman’s unproven allegations against Roy Moore. The Post’s story that featured Corfman’s salacious accusations was published November 9.

Also published November 9 was an AL.com article identifying, Eddie Sexton, as a Hoover attorney representing Corfman:

“An attorney for Leigh Corfman, whose story of a sexual encounter with Roy Moore when he was 32 and she was 14, broke today, said Corfman stands by her story.

Hoover attorney Eddie Sexton told AL.com that Corfman has wanted to publicly talk about the time in 1979 when Moore dated her, but never felt like it was the right time.”

In the November 9 AL.com piece, Sexton said that Corfman had been talking with WAPO reporters for several weeks before WAPO’s November 9 story appeared, which WAPO echoed in its November 9 story:

“Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women. All were initially reluctant to speak publicly but chose to do so after multiple interviews …”

In addition to Corfman, WAPO reporters also interviewed three other women, Wendy Miller, Debbie Wesson Gibson, and Gloria Thacker Deason for their November 9 story. None of these women accused Moore of inappropriate sexual contact, and to my knowledge, none of them had attorneys present when they told their stories to WAPO reporters.

Obviously, Sexton’s services had been retained before WAPO published its November 9 story. Questions of when Corfman retained the services of an attorney, or why she retained an attorney went unasked by WAPO reporters.

Corfman submitted an “open letter” published November 28 at AL.com. In it she echoed what her mother, Nancy Wells, had told Arron Klein of Breitbart News November 12.

“When the Washington Post approached me about what you [Moore] did to me as a child, I told them what happened …”

In their November 9 story, WAPO reporters admit that the four women were initially reluctant to speak to WAPO reporters, and  that it was WAPO reporters who sought out the women and made the initial contact:

“Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women.”

If the women didn’t initiate contact with WAPO reporters, how did they learn of Moore’s alleged relationships with teenage girls?

“While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore’s Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls.”

Shazam! Serendipity, thy name is Bezos. Unreported 40-year-old allegations just fell out the mouths of Moore supporters to an all-ears WAPO reporter working on a story about Moore supporters during Moore’s Senate campaign.

Lady Luck wasn’t just smiling on WAPO reporters, she was grinning like Cheshire Cat. WAPO reporters didn’t say how they found the women to corroborate what the reporter had heard at the Moore rally?

It was yet another serendipitous find. Voilà! WAPO reporters just happened to stumble upon Corfman, a Republican supporter of Trump who voted for him for President in ’16, and was at that very moment ready to break 38 years of silence, lawyer up, and dump a ton of salacious allegations about Moore just a few weeks outside of a crucial Senate election. Eureka! The sleuths found the kill shot.

What would raise an eyebrow on most people regarding the timing of Corfman’s allegations was nothing more than a facial tic on the WAPO reporters. Corfman, the self-identified Republican and Trump supporter, could’ve come forth with her allegations a month earlier during the Republican primary when Moore was running against Luther Strange—who Trump supported, and that would’ve helped the Republican Party and the Trump agenda.

Instead, Corfman waited until Moore won the primary and was pitted against a pro-partial-birth abortion, gun grabbing leftist Democrat before coming out with her salacious allegations and putting a Republican incumbent’s Senate seat in play for the Democrat Party.

It must not have occurred to the WAPO reporters to ask why a Trump-supporting Republican would turn against her party and president to aid the Democrat Party and help elect a leftist Democrat.

WAPO reporters didn’t ask Corfman a lot of probing or relevant questions. Corfman told them that Moore had phoned her not long after they’d met in 1979 and that she had talked with Moore on her phone in her bedroom.

Telephones weren’t that commonplace in 14-year-old girls’ bedrooms back in ‘79, but the WAPO reporters didn’t seem to possess that knowledge and just took Corfman’s word for it.

But the truth came out when Breitbart’s Arron Klein interviewed Corfman’s mother who said that her daughter didn’t have a phone in her bedroom at the time.

Corfman also told the Post that she had met Moore at Alcott Road and Riley Street, which she said was “around the corner” from her mother’s house in Gadsden. Once again, the WAPO reporters took Corfman’s word for it and didn’t bother to check how far away from Corfman’s mother’s house those streets were.

As it turns out, the Alcott Road and Riley Street intersection was not just “around the corner”; it was almost a mile away, and, at the time, across a major thoroughfare.

Corfman told the Post that she first met Moore while sitting on a wooden bench with her mother outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Alabama. Moore, a 32 year-old assistant district attorney at the time, had an office down the hall from the courtroom.

She said that she had gone out with Moore twice. The first time he told her she was pretty and kissed her. The second time he touched her over her bra and underpants and guided her hand over his underwear to touch his penis.

Corfman said the encounters with Moore had caused her to become increasingly reckless as a teenager. She began drinking, taking drugs, having boyfriends, and attempted suicide when she was 16 years old.

“I felt responsible. I felt like I had done something bad. And it kind of set the course for me doing other things that were bad,” she said.

To verify Corfman’s allegations, WAPO reporters looked at divorce records from February 1979 and found that Corfman’s mother did attend a hearing at the courthouse. They also confirmed that Moore had an office down the hall from the courtroom. And that’s all the verification they needed to prove that Corfman was telling the truth.

Had the WAPO reporters spent a bit more time reading the court documents, they would have found only one court case for February 1979, and it occurred February 21. In that case, Corfman’s mother voluntarily relinquished custody of Corfman to her father.

The custody documents cite Corfman’s “disciplinary and behavioral problems” as the reason for the change of custody from Corfman’s mother to her father. Both parents agreed that 14-year-old Corfman would be better off living with her father. Based on these court documents, Corfman’s behavioral problems began before her alleged encounters with Moore.

Obviously, the WAPO reporters did not carefully vet Corfman or take pains to investigate her allegations. They really weren’t looking to verify the accuracy of Corfman’s story or to determine the truth of her allegations.

Their job was to create and craft a narrative that would successfully destroy Moore and keep him out of the Senate. They needed salacious allegations to push that narrative, and Corfman’s story had to appear credible and sound believable.

The credibility of Corfman’s allegations relies on her memory of 38-year-old events and her ability to accurately recount the details surrounding those events, and thus far she’s been inaccurate about several of those details. These inaccuracies undermine her salacious allegations as well as her overall credibility and character.

The Post reported that Corfman’s had three divorces, three bankruptcies, and multiple misdemeanor charges. And she admits that “There is no one here that doesn’t know that I’m not an angel.”

And several people from Alabama who say they know her would disagree. They have taken to Facebook and Twitter to say that Corfman has a history of making false sexual allegations. According to their posts, Corfman has falsely alleged that several pastors at various churches have made sexual advances toward her.

Now that Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson came out today and admitted that she had forged a portion of the high school yearbook she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her salacious accusations against Moore, Corfman is now the last accuser standing.

WAPO’s November 9 bombshell piece was a created narrative crafted by WAPO reporters designed to destroy Roy Moore’s reputation and Senate candidacy.

Tuesday’s special election will determine whether or not they’ve succeeded. God help us if they do.

What Conservative, Evangelical, and Patriotic Americans Should Know about Donald Trump but Are Afraid to Ask

By Jerry A. Kane

The American public has been made privy to Donald Trump’s life throughout his adult hood. The media focus on Trump has been so pervasive it’s left behind a trail of headlines and feature stories that provides ample evidence he is unfit to be President of the United States. For those conservative, evangelical, and patriotic Americans who want to know the truth about Trump because they care about the survival of this Constitutional Republic, I’ve compiled a rather lengthy list of articles, commentaries, and videos for your perusal.

Although the list is large, it is by no means exhaustive. The news and feature articles are not gossip or rumor-based, Roger-Stone-fed National Enquirer hit pieces; they are based on facts and actual interviews conducted with the mogul himself and are posted online at newspaper and magazine websites.

Most conservative, evangelical, and patriotic Americans are not authoritarians or fascists, but the same could have been said about most conservative, evangelical, and patriotic Germans who lived in 1920s and 1930s Germany. And they ended up supporting Hitler and the Nazi Party because the Nazis promoted a religious, political, and national vision that they found appealing and agreeable.

Trump is a master showman and a marketing guru. Manipulation is what he does, and he sees nothing morally wrong in being dishonest and deceitful to promote himself.

“The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. … I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.”—Donald Trump, The Art of the Deal

Trump followers see him as a political outsider, a larger-than-life messiah and superman standing for truth, justice, and the American dream. They believe he will overturn the tables of the moneychangers to “make America great again” and bring an end to the political corruption and cronyism in government.

The problem is Trump has been (until he decided to run for president last year) a crony capitalist, left-leaning Democrat with New York values who has endorsed and funded corrupt politicians and has used the corrupt political system to amass wealth and build an empire. The truth is Trump doesn’t have any conservative bonafides, and what’s worse he’s a congenital liar. Why any conservative, evangelical, or patriotic American would believe anything he says is mystifying.

Yet Trump has followers who are more than willing to proclaim his propaganda and repeat his lies and allegations with zero evidence any of them are true. His followers parrot his empty slogans and fascist ideas without question or second thought, and they zealously attack his critics as mortal enemies who must be destroyed.

Any conservative, evangelical, or patriot who musters the nerve to tell the truth about Trump is immediately branded a traitor to the cause and marked for verbal abuse on social networking and media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Trump has made it dangerous for conservative, evangelical, and tea party Republicans to criticize him. It matters little who they are or what they have actually done over the years to further constitutional principles or the conservative agenda. They must bow and kiss the Donald’s ring or suffer the stones and arrows of personal attacks from the slings and quivers of his followers and paid henchmen. The upshot is Donald Trump’s masquerade as a conservative Republican has succeeded in damn-near destroying the GOP’s conservative base.

For conservative, evangelical, and tea party Republicans to bow and scrape before a man who changes political parties as often as Hugh Heffner does girlfriends would be laughable on it’s face were it not so mystifying and heart wrenching. Why they would promote a man who proudly identifies himself with leftist New York values is nothing short of Churchillian, a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. The survival of this Republic rests on the faint hope that these conservative, evangelical, and tea party Republicans are merely ignorant and not willfully so. 

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”—Abraham Lincoln

101 Of Trump’s Greatest Lies Donald Trump dubbed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Lyin’ Ted when it became clear that Cruz was a serious rival for his nomination; he called Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) an “even bigger liar” than Cruz.

Our nation was set up with a series of anti-democratic measures designed specifically to prevent the hot temper of the electorate from overwhelming the various protections written into the framework of the government. Not once in the founding documents does the word “democracy” appear — we are a Republic with some democratic institutions.

PUMP THE TRUMP
Donald Trump, it is what it is
You can love him or hate him, but the game is all his
Critics say he’s not presidential
He’s got the skills that we all find essential

Cause man our country’s business is bruised and busted
Our currency’s weak these dudes can’t be trusted
Our allies are mad – enemies locked and loaded
Don’t be mis-informed when it’s your time for voting
Pump the Trump
You may think you know him from TV and pageants
But the game he will bring you can only imagine
He listens to both sides asks questions
He can take this country in the right direction
Hold the borders shut down the illegals
Bust up the terror with the claws of our Eagle
So watch out look out all you non-performers
You about to get trumped with a new reformer
Pump the Trump
This is the time the White House the place
Trump is the man who already won this race
He speaks truth, to negotiate
He’s the Business mind gonna clean up the slate
We need a leader who is never scared of a fight
No special interest meetings in the dark of the night
It’s your choice I choose to roll in the light
The right man for the job Donald Trump, alright?
Pump the trump
