Minutes before the Washington Post on Thursday published a bombshell report detailing allegations by a woman who claims Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14, the Steve Bannon-directed outlet\u0026nbsp;Breitbart News ran a story that spotlighted Moore\u0026#039;s denials of the claims against him and attempted to \u0022undermine the Post\u0026#039;s credibility.\u0022\u0022The story detailed some of the allegations, but with a distinct twist,\u0022 notes Business Insider\u0026#039;s Maxwell Tani. \u0022Breitbart included five paragraphs of denials from Moore, which were placed above many of the details of the allegations.\u0022Headlined \u0022After Endorsing Democrat in Alabama, Bezos\u0026#039;s Washington Post Plans to Hit Roy Moore with Allegations of Inappropriate Relations with Teenagers; Judge Claims Smear Campaign,\u0022 Breitbart\u0026#039;s piece more closely resembles a \u0022press release\u0022 for Moore than a news story, argued the Washington Post\u0026#039;s Aaron Blake.David Uberti of Splinter News echoed Blake, calling the piece \u0022transparently disgusting spin.\u0022\u0022Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story\u0022Translation:\u0022Roy Moore\u0026#039;s campaign asked us to do a preemptive press release for them\u0022— Aaron Blake (@AaronBlake) November 9, 2017According to the Post\u0026#039;s account of the allegations, Moore approached 14-year-old Leigh Corfman in 1979 when she was sitting outside of an Etowah County, Alabama courtroom with her mother in 1979. Moore offered to watch Corfman while her mother went inside the courtroom for a child custody hearing, and proceeded to ask her for her phone number.Just days later, the Post reports, Moorepicked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.\u0026nbsp;\u0022I wanted it over with—I wanted out,\u0022 she remembers thinking. \u0022Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.\u0022 Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.Two of Corfman\u0026#039;s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.Three other women have also alleged that Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18, the Post reported. One of the women, Wendy Miller, said Moore first approached her when she was 14 and began asking her on dates when she was 16.Lawmakers were quick to respond to the allegations, and many Republicans called on Moore to step down as the party\u0026#039;s Senate nominee.\u0022If there is any truth at all to these horrific allegations, Roy Moore should immediately step aside as a Senate candidate,\u0022 Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said in a statement.Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the allegations \u0022deeply disturbing and disqualifying.\u0022\u0022He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they are proud of,\u0022 McCain wrote on Twitter.Moore has been labeled a \u0022bigot\u0022 and a \u0022theocratic crackpot\u0022 for his record as an Alabama Supreme Court judge.In 2003, Moore garnered national attention when he had a 5,280-pound monument of the 10 Commandments built inside Alabama\u0026#039;s state judicial building. He has also suggested that Muslims should be barred from serving in Congress and that homosexuality should be outlawed.
