Former U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and his wife Monday sued four people involved in the sexual misconduct allegations that rocked the campaign and ultimately led to Moore's narrow defeat. The Moores' suit charged defamation and political conspiracy. Named as defendants were Leigh Corfman, Debbie Wesson Gibson, Beverly Nelson, and Tina Johnson, who said they had encounters with Moore when they were teenagers and Moore was in his 30s. Also named was Richard Hagedorn, who worked with the accusers, and the Washington Post, to get the allegations published, the suit alleges. At a press conference in Gadsden, Moore, accompanied by wife Kayla, and his attorney, said the allegations were politically motivated, and that the lawsuit would prove it. "32 days after 70 years, that should raise your attention," Moore said, referring to the timeframe of the allegations by Corfman, printed by the Washington Post 32 days before the December special election. Allegations from the other women soon followed, showing evidence of a conspiracy, attorney Melissa Isaak said.
