According to AL.com, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore is struggling to pay his legal bills as he faces a lawsuit filed against him by one of the women who accused him of sexually assaulting her.
Moore suffered a stunning defeat by losing a U.S. Senate special election to Democrat Doug Jones two months ago is now filling his days dealing with the fallout from revelations that he allegedly sexually assaulted teens when he was a 30-year-old district attorney years ago.
Currently facing a defamation lawsuit filed by Leigh Corfman, the former Judge has been attempting to raise money for his defense.
According to the report, Moore has only raised $32,235 of the $250,000 he feels he needs to pay his legal bills.
Writing on Facebook Moore raged, “I have lawyers who want to help but they are not without cost and besides their fees, legal expenses could run over $100,000. The liberal media, in association with some who want to destroy our country do not want my influence in the 2018 elections and are doing everything they can to stop me.
“Gays, lesbians, and transgenders have joined forces with those who believe in abortion, sodomy, and destruction of all that we hold dear. Unless we stand together we will lose our country,” Moore added.
Moore said his travails have taken “a toll” on him and his family.
“I’m sure that you cannot imagine how this has taken a toll on my wife, my children, and even my friends,” he explained. “My resources have been depleted and I have struggled to make ends meet, but I have not lost my faith in our God, who is our true source of strength and will never leave or forsake us.”
