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.

Idaho Incident Raises Concerns Over Government Gun Confiscation

By Jerry A. Kane

When the Department of Veterans Affairs determines a veteran unable to take care of his financial affairs, it reports the assessment to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Once NICS gets the report, it labels the veteran “incapacitated,” which means that he along with his family members who live in the same household are barred by law from buying or owning firearms.

On July 30, 2015, Navy Veteran John Arnold of Priest River, Idaho, received a letter from the VA informing him that he is no longer allowed to purchase or own guns, and that “an inspector from an Idaho office of Veteran’s Affairs would be coming to his home in Priest River on August 6th to confiscate his firearms.” VA spokesman Bret Bowers said the agency’s benefits office in Salt Lake City had sent out the letter.

Last September the 70 year-old Arnold suffered a stroke and went to the VA for medical attention. After undergoing treatment, Arnold quickly recovered from the stroke, but an assessment conducted by the VA determined he could no longer handle his own finances. Arnold said that he has always taken care of his own finances and has continued to do so after recovering from the stroke.

When word got out that an inspector was coming to confiscate Arnold’s guns, Idaho Republican state Representative Heather Scott of Blanchard and about 100 area residents gathered outside the veteran’s home to prevent the inspector from taking them.

Scott spearheaded the effort, which attracted Washington state Representative Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley and County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler. Shea called the gathering a “defiance against tyranny” and Wheeler vowed that he’d stand guard “to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”

“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho. This seemed appropriate to show my support,” Wheeler said.

Arnold said he was “thankful and amazed” by the number of people who showed up to stand with him and support his Second Amendment rights.

“It’s absolutely amazing and it gives you a new found hope that there are still people out there,” said Maria Bosworth, Arnold supporter.

The VA does have the authority to declare veterans incompetent to handle their financial affairs, which bars them from buying or owing firearms; but Bowers said his agency doesn’t have the authority to confiscate them.

The VA’s authority to bar veterans from buying and owning guns is being challenged by Second Amendment advocates. Recently U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) proposed a bill that would require court action before the VA can bar veterans who have been declared incompetent from buying guns.

Priest River, population 1,700, has been described as a community of strong Tea Party and Second Amendment supporters.

NRA Backs Gun Background Check Legislation

By Jerry A. Kane

OFA-NRA

Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, the Senate’s No. 2 Republican leader, introduced legislation today that would reward states for sending more information about residents with serious mental problems to the federal background check system for firearms purchasers.

The proposed legislation is being backed by the National Rifle Association. Jennifer Baker, spokeswoman for NRA legislative affairs, said the bill took “meaningful steps toward fixing the system and making our communities safer.”

Cornyn’s bill would increase grants under the government’s main law enforcement program by up to 5 percent for states that send the federal system at least 90 percent of their records on people with serious mental problems.

States providing less data could see their grants from a broad range of justice programs penalized by the same amounts, at the attorney general’s discretion.

So what criteria will the Uni-party use to determine a “serious” mental problem, and how long before it mandates what type of psychiatric exam everyone must get to purchase a gun?

Didn’t Hussein I (peace be upon him) and his minions suggest that fundamentalist Christians and staunch conservatives have serious mental problems? BTW, this latest assault on individual liberty and the 2nd Amendment is headed by a Republican senator and the NRA, and not Charles Schumer and Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963:

  1. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  2. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

Some children who exhibit negative, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward adults and authority have been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. For a child to receive an ODD diagnosis, the behaviors must occur for at least six months.

Right now it’s only children who are diagnosed with ODD, but it’s not hard to imagine that eventually the parameters of the disorder will expand to include adults.

Iran Deal Would Require US to Defend Iran against Israel

By Jerry A. Kane

While discussing the Iran deal on the Today Show, the Secretary of State and husband of Teresa Hines, John “Lurch” Kerry said that an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran would be “a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel.”

Kerry tried to downplay concerns that clauses in the Iran deal would require the US to secure Iran’s nuclear facilities and defend the terrorist nation against an Israeli preemptive attack.

“[F]aced with a choice between defending Israel and defending the Iran deal, it is become clear that under some circumstances, the Obama administration would choose the latter. That is a radically different position from the one Obama took in public just a short time before formal negotiations began,” Breitbart News.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio also pointed out that part of the Iran deal could force the US into the position of helping Iran defend itself against Israel.

“At the last minute, they [Iran negotiators] were able to get all sorts of outrageous concessions including … we have to help Iran protect itself against sabotage. If any other country tries to undermine their nuclear program, we have to help them defend themselves against Israel, Egypt, Saudis, our own allies.”

The Iran deal also has been roundly criticized in the Israeli media.

“One of the clauses in the nuclear deal reached between world powers and Iran last week guarantees that the world powers will assist Iran in thwarting attempts to undermine its nuclear program,” Israel Hayom.

A preemptive strike against Iran would not be the first time Israel had preemptively attacked a country without U.S. support. Ronald Reagan condemned Israel’s attack against Iraq in 1981, and George W. Bush opposed Israel’s strike against Syria in 2007.

In the past, Hussein I (peace be upon him) has leaked Israeli attack plans to Iran thus neutralizing Israel’s preemptive capacity. However, with the concessions made in the Iran deal, he could mandate something far worse for Israel.

Unfortunately, there are countless traitors within the American political community who speak out of both sides of their mouths. And some of the fork-tongued politicians are Jews who claim they support Israel, yet they are in reality self-hating, Kapo Jews who would feel no remorse if the Jews in Israel were wiped out by the Iranians.

If Sean Hannity and Mark Levin aren’t tools of the establishment, they would be on a crusade promoting the anti-establishment candidates in the upcoming GOP primaries.

I’m not talking about a casual mention of a particular Senate race here and there, or a rant against one of the establishment’s candidates; I’m talking about interviewing these largely unknown candidates and dropping their names with increased frequency with each approaching primary. Name recognition is key if these unknown candidates are to have a fighting chance against the well-known, well-financed establishment incumbents.

If Hannity and Levin had integrity and the courage of their professed convictions, they would be repentant for their wholehearted endorsement Orin Hatch, a card-carrying member of the permanent political class and more RINO than Bob Bennett, who lost Utah’s 2010 primary to Mike Lee.

To jog your memory, Hatch was headed for defeat in 2012, but Mark Levin and Sean Hannity intervened to save his bacon. They endorsed Hatch, interviewed and promoted him as a stalwart conservative on their shows, and relentlessly attacked Dan Liljenquist, Hatch’s challenger, who in truth was an actual conservative tough on fiscal issues, illegal immigration, and the GOP establishment.

Levin was the more ruthless of the two. He mercilessly attacked FreedomWorks and its head Dick Armey for prompting a radical, open-borders, pro-amnesty position, and viciously smeared Liljenquist in spite of the fact that Hatch was an original sponsor of the open-borders DREAM Act.

Levin endorsed Hatch without reservation knowing Hatch had been in DC since 1976; had promoted SCHIP (Obamacare for Children), TARP, the Law of the Sea Treaty, and Medicare Part D; and had voted to confirm leftists Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, and Cass Sunstein.

“I endorsed Orrin Hatch a year ago and will continue to do so,” Levin proclaimed.

Hatch’s voting record called into question his ability and desire to uphold the Constitution and defend liberty and freedom, but Levin was undeterred. He doubled down to endorse and support the mascot for big-spending Beltway entrenched incumbents who routinely crossed the aisle to promote and pass the Democrats’ destructive policies.

Hatch was the antithesis of the Tea Party spirit. Following his vote in support of Eric Holder as Attorney General, he said, “I like Barack Obama and I want to help him if I can.” Hatch proved he was part of the overall problem and epitomized everything Levin said he opposed on his radio talk show; yet, Levin gave Hatch unwavering support.

Levin has a reputation for being a constitutional scholar and a solid Reagan conservative and his endorsement of the six-term senator with a big-government voting record and nearly four decades of costly progressive partnerships carried a lot of clout with the tea party and the conservative grassroots. His endorsement gave Hatch more of the trust of Utah’s Republican primary voters in one of the nation’s reddest states.

Primaries are where the fight for the soul of the GOP takes place. Primaries are where the GOP’s RINO/neocon establishment should be ousted. Primaries are where the grass roots lets the party know that “we’re mad as hell, and we’re not taking it anymore.”

Sean Hannity’s and Mark Levin’s endorsements have enormous credibility, but they put their shows’ ratings and personal interests ahead of their professed beliefs. The truth is what they say and do adheres to management, advertising, and FCC guidelines. That’s the way it is, and it’s naive to think otherwise.

Looking to talk radio for heroes and champions is like looking for love in all the wrong places. People who do it are setting themselves up for a major letdown.

But don’t take my word for it; use the available social media and ask your conservative warriors if they’ll go all out to help these anti-establishment senate candidates get the name recognition and raise the money to rid the GOP of its RINOs.

If you take me up on my challenge be prepared for great disappointment and the bloom to fall off the rose.
