In 1982, Kelly Harrison Thorp was a hostess at the Red Lobster restaurant in Gadsden, Alabama. She claims that Roy Moore used to come inside the restaurant and ask her on dates. Thorp rejected Moore's advances.
Thorp said Moore asked her if she'd go out with him sometime. "I just kind of said, 'Do you know how old I am?'" she recalled. "And he said, 'Yeah. I go out with girls your age all the time.'" Thorp said she turned him down and told him she had a boyfriend. She said he then walked away.
Thorp knows one of Moore's other accusers, Leigh Corfman. Corfman alleged that Moore initiated sexual contact with her when she was 14-years-old.
Thorp knows one of Moore's accusers, Leigh Corfman, who told The Washington Post that Moore had a sexual encounter with her when she was 14. Thorp believes Corfman's story and said she is proud of her for telling it publicly.
