After the Washington Post reported that a woman accused Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore, tried to engage in a sexual relationship with her when she was 14 years old and he was in his thirties, people across the country used Twitter to highlight the severity of the allegations.
Leigh Corfman told the Post that when she was 14, Moore, then 32, “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.”
However, Moore denied the allegations on Fox News with Sean Hannity.
"I don’t know Ms. Corfman from anybody," Moore said on Sean Hannity's radio show on Friday. "I've never talked to, never known her or anything."
Then, on Veteran’s Day, Moore once again denied the claims.
"These attacks involve a minor, and they are completely false and untrue, about something that happened nearly 40 years ago," he said at an event.
In response to the accusations and subsequent denial, The Daily Show writer Lizz Winstead started the hashtag “#MeAt14” in order to prove that 14-year-olds are not capable of giving consent to a sexual relationship with a 32-year-old.
