Moore obtained her phonethen made arrangements to pick her up near her house a few days later.
She said that on a first date, he kissed her. On a second encounter, she said, he took off her pants and shirt and his own clothes, touched her over her bra and underwear, and guided her hand to touch his penis over his underwear. Corfman, 53, said she had never made a public accusation for several reasons, but said it had weighed on her.

One said he first approached her at 14, and asked her for a date at 16, but her mother refused. Another recalled Moore buying her glasses of wine before she was of legal drinking age.
The women said they found the attention flattering at the time but disturbing in retrospect. The Atlantic reached out to all 52 Republican senators to ask whether they think Moore should withdraw from the Alabama Senate race, based on the allegations.
Nineteen senators responded, all suggesting that if the Washington Post allegations are true, Moore should withdraw from the race. Senator John McCain, though, was unequivocal. Moore, who made his name as a crusading moral and religious conservative, denied the allegations.

State officials backing Moore were more supportive. Meanwhile, Moore has continued to court controversy. The latest allegations create even more of a headache for Republicans, both in Alabama and beyond.
