Defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is trying to raise $250,000 as he fights a defamation lawsuit filed by a woman who says Moore touched her sexually when she was 14 years old.
Moore railed against a “vicious attack” from lawyers in Washington, D.C., and San Francisco and asked for money to start a legal defense fund in a rambling Facebook message posted Friday night. He did not explicitly mention the defamation suit.
“I will trust God that he will allow truth to prevail against the unholy forces of evil behind their attack,” Moore wrote. “I have lawyers who want to help but they are not without cost and besides their fees, legal expenses could run over $100,000. I have had to establish a ‘legal defense fund, anything you give will be appreciated.”
