The recent accusations of sexual misconduct could bring down Roy Moore’s U.S. Senate campaign.
But since the accusations dropped, some things aren’t adding up.
And one of Moore’s accusers has a dark secret that is poking major holes in her accusation.
Deborah Gibson is one of the women claiming Roy Moore pursued her while she was in high school.
She claims that Roy Moore asked her on a date after he spoke to her high school civics class when he was 34.
Moore has denied this, and the other accusations against him claiming that they are nothing more than campaign smears to bring down his campaign.
And the fact that Gibson worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign as a sign language interpreter is poking doubt at her story.
As reported by AL.com:
“One of the women who said Senate candidate Roy Moore pursued her while she was in high school worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign as a sign language interpreter, according to videos and documents posted online.
Deborah Wesson Gibson, owner of the interpreting company Signs of Excellence, provided services for Clinton during her 2016 campaign, as well as working with former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden during other events. Photos posted to her company’s social media site show her providing sign language services for Sen. Patrick Murphy and Sen. Bill Nelson, both Florida Democrats.
Gibson’s company has offices in Florida and Alabama, providing sign language interpretation to businesses, politicians, governments and more.
Gibson did not respond to texts or email messages seeking a comment. The voice mail box for her phone is full. She told AL.com yesterday she stood by her comments in the Washington Post interview.
In a 2016 interview with Florida’s WLRN, Gibson outlined the challenges that come with providing interpretation at a political rally.
“One of the things that she (Hillary Clinton) does,” Gibson said, “Is that she’ll say, ‘You know what? If standing up for equal pay is playing the woman’s card, then DEAL ME IN!’
“And you might normally interpret that say something like, ‘Include me,” says Gibson. “But because that’s one of the things that she says, we literally sign, “Deal me in,” like it was cards that you were dealing. We want to capture and hold that euphemism and let the deaf person have access to that as well. So they can be party of the frenzy”.”
So not only did Gibson work for Hillary’s campaign, she actively supported her candidacy.
She has also reportedly declared her support for Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones, sharing his campaign material on her Facebook page.
Gibson’s claim also falls short compared to other more extreme claims.
She claims that she and Roy Moore only dated a few months, and that he was very respectful, and that they only shared kisses.
This doesn’t match other more sexually charged stories, describing Moore as a sexual predator.
So even if Gibson’s story is true, it pokes holes in the other stories that are described as much more graphic.
Do you think Roy Moore’s accusers are coming out for political reasons?
