1. Corfman isn't a Republican candidate. She's the victim of a sex crime
committed by a Republican candidate.
2. I never said Trump endorsed him.
3. Why are you comparing two such unlike cases?
You have 4 different women who independently told their stories that
Moore pursued sexual relationships with them; at least one that was
definitely under the age of consent. You have corroboration of the story
from others who were told of it years and years ago.
And most disgustingly, you have some people trying to provide cover for
this sort of thing (not denying that it happened, mind!) by stating that
"Mary was a teenager" when she married "Joseph":
'“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult
carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Alabama state auditor Jim
Ziegler told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
“There is nothing to see here,” the Alabama official told the Examiner.
“The allegations are that a man in his early 30s dated teenage girls.
Even the Washington Post report says that he never had sexual
intercourse with any of the girls and never attempted sexual intercourse.”
In his comments on the incident, Ziegler focused on the fact that the
report said Moore had not had sex with the girl and that the
relationship happened decades ago. He also pointed to the fact that
Moore’s wife is younger than him and the pair began dating shortly after
the incidents detailed in the Post report.'
