Roy Moore Accuser: I 'Didn't Deserve to Have a Man Prey Upon' Me

(NBC News)

The first accuser of Judge Roy Moore on Monday rebuffed any notion that she came out for political or financial gain, telling NBC's "Today" show: "I didn't go looking for this."

Leigh Corfman, allegedly the youngest of the victims, claims she was 14-years-old when Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, took her to his home and "proceeded to seduce me" nearly 40 years ago.

Corfman thinks about that girl she once was.

"She had a lot of promise ahead of her," Corfman told morning show. "She didn't deserve to have a 32-year-old man prey upon her."

Corfman addressed the pertinent question of why come out now, when Moore was on the precipice of winning a special election to fill the vacant seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the U.S. Senate.

"So when The Washington Post sought me out — I didn't go looking for this; it literally fell in my lap — and I had to make a decision," Corfman told the program. "I told them at that time … if they found additional people, I would tell my story. And they found those people."

So far, nine women have come forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct.

Corfman also rebuffed claims that she was paid to tell her story.

"If anything this has cost me. I've had to take leave from my job. I have no tickets to Tahiti. My bank account has not flourished, if anything it has gone down cause currently I'm not working," Corfman said.

When asked about Moore's denial that it ever happened and that he doesn't even know her, Corfman said, "I wonder how many times he doesn't know."

"My sorrow is that others have had to go through this. But here's the beauty of what has happened: the support has been amazing. Women and men have come forward to tell their stories that have never had the ability to do so because of my courageous actions," Corfman said.

Corfman also said she has "voted as a republican for years and years and years," but that this isn't about politics.

"But this isn't political for me. This is personal. It's very close to my heart. And I've lived with this for a long time," Corfman said.
