The women accusing Roy Moore on the Washington Post of sexual encounters with Leigh Corfman and other teens are receiving quite the reaction.

On a new segment that was on Friday’s showing of Birmingham, AL ABC affiliate WBMA 33/40’s 5 p.m. local news, Lauren Walsh a political reporter went in search of voters in Columbiana, AL to find out their thoughts to the recent Washington Post about Roy Moore.

All of the individuals she asked did not believe the Post in the first place, and they all felt it was completely bogus.

According to breitbart:

“It’s hard to believe the events that transpired yesterday,” Gordon Fluker of nearby Wilsonville, AL said to Walsh about the Washington Post report.

Fluker’s response was the standard according to Walsh.

“Out of all the voters we spoke with Friday in Columbiana, we didn’t find one voter who believed the Washington Post report about Moore,” she said.

Columbiana is the county seat of Shelby County, a county that is the home to many of Birmingham’s southern suburbs. The county is very Republican, and in last year’s presidential election, it went for Donald Trump by a 72-23 percent margin.

In the GOP primary and the subsequent runoff for next month’s special election won by Moore, Shelby County went for his opponent Luther Strange in both instances.

Strange defeated Moore by nine points in the GOP primary held in August. In the runoff a month later, Strange topped Moore by a 55-45 margin.

Moore faces Democrat candidate Doug Jones on December 12 for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions.
