'Mary Was a Teenager.' Alabama Republican Uses Jesus to Defend Roy Moore
By Abigail Abrams November 9, 2017
While some Republicans at the national level spoke out against Alabama
Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday in the wake of allegations that he
initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s,
Republicans from his own state seemed to have a different view with one
citing Jesus parents to defend Moores alleged behavior.
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.
Four women have told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships
with them when they were teenagers and he was an adult. The women were
between the ages of 14 and 18, while Moore was in his 30s at the time,
according to the Post.
Leigh Corfman, the woman who was 14 when she says Moore approached her,
told the Post that Moore touched her over her bra and underwear and guided
her hand to his underwear. The other three women did not have sexual
contact that went beyond kissing.
Moore denied the allegations on Thursday, saying they are completely
false and a desperate political attack. Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell said that Moore must step aside if the allegations are true, and
Sen. John McCain went further, calling on Moore to immediately step
Ziegler, on the other hand, said the allegations were much ado about
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 Moores wife is
younger than him and the pair began dating shortly after the incidents
detailed in the Post report.
Theres just nothing immoral or illegal here, Ziegler added, according
to the Examiner. Maybe just a little bit unusual.
Another home state Republican, Alabamas Secretary of State John Merrill,
also downplayed the allegations against Moore. He told ThinkProgress on
Thursday that Moores name would still be on the ballot for Alabamas
special election Dec. 12 and questioned whether the allegations were true
People make things up all the time, Merrill told the website. Do I
think its possible they made this up? I do.
