Judge Roy Moore’s good name has been dragged through the mud over the last few weeks and we have been following it every step of the way. Now, new details are emerging that cast some serious doubt on the allegations made against him.
In the midst of sexual abuse allegations being raised against dozens of leftists, it seems the Washington Post thought they could ride this wave and try to take down one of the country’s most conservative and God-fearing politicians.
We have consistently told you that Moore was not going down without a fight, and fight he has. He, his loyal wife Kayla, and his committed campaign have consistently denied the damaging allegations that he accosted teenage girls when he was in his 30’s. It is worthy to note that out of all the prominent celebrities and politicians who have been accused over the last month or so, Roy Moore remains the only man who has vehemently denied these allegations.
Because of this, it has been hard for these claims to stick. And, thanks to the hard work of the Moore campaign and some honest folks who decided to come forward, the story of Moore’s accusers has been unraveling.
The fact still remains that if Moore is indeed guilty, he should come clean and step down. No one should be defending what he is accused of doing. But as time goes on, it seems less and less likely the allegations are true.
Let’s break it down:
Last week, the distinctly left-leaning magazine The New Yorker published an article claiming that Moore used to hang around the Gadsden Mall as an adult, attempting to pick up teenage girls.
The accounts of former employees of the mall seemed to the left to fully solidify the fact that this man habitually preyed on young girls as an adult.
However, in a recent bombshell interview with Fox News, the former manager of the Gadsden Mall from the time that this would have happened says he has no memory of any ban of Moore being in place.
Wouldn’t the manager of the mall be aware of who was banned from his facilities?
He’s not the only one coming forward with a different account of the accusers’ stories. You will remember that the most serious allegations made against Roy Moore were by Beverly Young Nelson, who is being represented by the attention-seeking feminist lawyer Gloria Allred.
Well, first of all, her testimony that Moore tried to rape her in his car behind the restaurant where she worked as a teenager relied heavily on the fact that Moore had supposedly signed the woman’s yearbook, although the signature clearly appears to be a forgery.
Now, Allred can’t even say for certain that her client remembers the yearbook being signed by Moore, and has even admitted that “it doesn’t matter” if the signature is a fraud!!
Furthermore, Rhonda Ledbetter, who worked at the restaurant in question, the Ole Hickory House, has poked several holes in Nelson’s story. To start, Nelson claimed she started working at the restaurant when she was 15, but Ledbetter claims you had to be 16 to work there. Also, while Nelson said the dumpsters were in the back of the building, Ledbetter said they were around the side.
While Nelson claimed the alley in which Moore attempted to rape her was dark and deserted, Ledbetter says there were lights all around the building, and that the restaurant would have still been open at the time Nelson claimed the assault happened.
The Moore campaign elaborated on Ledbetter’s account and the account of others who undermine Nelson’s testimony in a press release yesterday:
Olde Hickory House sat right off of the four-lane highway and had a wrap-around porch with lights all around it. Nelson claimed that the surroundings were “dark and isolated.”
Rhonda Ledbetter, who worked at Olde Hickory House for almost 3 years, states that the earliest it closed was at 11 p.m. but she believes it was open until midnight. She is certain it did not close at 10:00 because Goodyear was next door, and employees came to eat when their shift ended at 10 p.m. Nelson claims her story occurred after the restaurant closed at 10 p.m.
It is unlikely that there was an entrance from the back of the parking lot, which Nelson claimed existed. Multiple sources have claimed that everyone parked on the sides of the building because there wasn’t much room behind the restaurant, according to Rhonda not enough room to turn around. Renee Schivera stated that a neighborhood backed up to the parking lot and it was adjacent to the backyards of people’s houses, so she did not see how there would have been a back entrance as it would have gone through someone’s yard.
Nelson claimed that Judge Roy Moore came in almost every night and sat at the counter, but former employees state that customers at the counter were served by the bartender or short order cook – not served by the waitresses and had no reason to interact with the wait staff. Additionally, two former waitresses and two former patrons state they never saw Judge Moore come into the restaurant.
These witnesses have shared their testimony with multiple news outlets. The outlets have failed to report.
Rhonda Ledbetter, a retired public school teacher who is currently the senior choir director at a Baptist church and teaches children at a local, church-sponsored day care center, was a waitress at Olde Hickory House for almost three years from 1977-1979. She was a college student at Jacksonville State University at the time and worked varying shifts at different times of day, multiple days a week during the time of her employment. She said in a statement:
“When I heard Beverly Nelson’s story, there were several details that were different from what I remember. I was nervous at coming forward because of all the attention this story has gotten, but as a moral and ethical person I had to speak up about what I know to be true. I was a waitress at Olde Hickory for almost three years from 1977-1979, and I never saw Roy Moore come in to the restaurant. Not one time. And I would have noticed because most of our customers weren’t wearing suits, especially not at night. Many customers worked at Goodyear next door and would stop in on their way to and from work, and I don’t remember anyone from the courthouse coming in at all. That just wasn’t our crowd.
“A few things stuck out to me. First, Nelson said she was 15 years old when she started working there but you had to be 16. I don’t remember her from my time there, and I don’t remember any 15 year olds working there at all.
“Second, Nelson said the restaurant closed at 10 p.m. but I know the earliest it closed was 11, though I believe it was midnight. I’m certain of that because Goodyear employees came in to eat after their shift ended at 10:00 p.m., so there’s no way we would have closed at that time.
“Third, the area wasn’t dark and isolated as she described. Rather, the building was right off the busy four-lane highway and people and cars were always around. The restaurant had a wrap-around porch, like the ones at Cracker Barrel restaurants, and there were lights all around the sides of the building. So it wasn’t dark and anyone in the parking lot was visible from the road.
“Fourth, the dumpsters were to the side of the building, not around back and there sure wasn’t room to park in between the building and the dumpsters. People from the kitchen would take trash out of the side door and throw it right into the dumpsters. We were always told to park on the side of the building, because there just wasn’t much room behind it. I don’t remember there being an exit from the back of the parking lot, there would barely have been enough room to turn a car around.
“I came forward because from what I’ve seen, the media is only interested in reporting one side of this story. In fact, Dixon Hayes from WRBC in Birmingham asked for former employees to contact him but never responded when I told him I never saw Roy Moore come into Olde Hickory House during the three years I worked for. Two other news outlets in the state asked to interview me and I agreed, but neither one has aired my interview and I have to wonder why they don’t think the people of Alabama deserve to hear anything that counteracts the accusations against Judge Moore. It’s not for me to say whether or not something happened, I can only tell the truth about factual details that I know for sure. I think all Alabamians deserve to have all of the facts so they can decide for themselves what the truth is. Despite what the national media and people in DC might say, Alabama voters are intelligent and have common sense. We don’t need anyone to tell us how to vote or to explain to us what really happened. We will make that decision and I just wanted to do my part in sharing the truth on some of these important facts. I, like all Alabama voters, want any and all information that can shed light on the truth.”
Johnny Belyeu, Sr. is a former police officer with over two decades of experience with the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department and the Gadsden Police Department. He said in a statement, “I was an officer with the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department in the 1970s which means I worked in the courthouse and knew who Roy Moore was since he was the Deputy District Attorney at the time. I was a regular customer at Olde Hickory House, and I never once saw Judge Moore come in there. If he had I would have immediately recognized him. I also never met Beverly Nelson during any of the many times I frequented the restaurant, and I can’t say that she even worked there.”
Renee Schivera of Huntsville, Alabama stated, “I was a waitress at the Olde Hickory House during the summer of 1977, before my senior year of high school. When I heard Beverly Nelson’s story the first thing that stuck out to me was that I don’t remember Roy Moore ever coming into the restaurant. I also don’t remember her working there. The other thing that struck me as odd is that from my best recollection, the dumpsters were to the side of the building. I just know they were visible from the road, and not back behind the building. But the main thing is that if someone came in almost every night we knew who there were, and I never saw Roy Moore there. As a Christian woman, I wouldn’t lie for anyone and I am only sharing what I know because it’s the truth.”
And finally, it has come to light that Leigh Corfman, who was the subject of the original allegations against Moore, has made several other allegations against Pastors who supposedly also sexually molested her.
Purportedly Moore’s main accuser Leigh Corfman has had three divorces, filed for bankruptcy three times, and has been charged with multiple misdemeanors.
Posts on Moore's FB page indicate that Corfman, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her.

Perhaps this is a pattern for Corfman?
In light of these new accounts, at the very least, it casts quite a bit of doubt on the allegations made against Roy Moore. The establishment has vehemently opposed this man for decades as he has consistently defended the Constitution and biblical morality.
One expects him to face persecution and smear campaigns–that’s why it is so unbelievable that if he truly committed these acts, they’re only coming to light now.
As the President himself has said, it is now up to the people of Alabama to decide who’s telling the truth. Share this far and wide so they can get the whole story!
