Woman caught trying to plant fake story about Roy Moore
NEW YORK POST – JOE TACOPINO
A hoaxer was caught trying to plant a fake story about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore in the Washington Post to discredit the paper.
The woman — who apparently was working for infamous conservative provocateur James O’Keefe — told the paper she was raped and impregnated by Moore as a teenager.
She said the sexual relationship with Moore took place in 1992 and led to an abortion when she was 15.
The woman asked the paper to remain anonymous and wanted them to assure her that her story would lead to Moore being ousted from the race.
She made the claims after a Nov. 9 Washington Post investigative piece resulted in multiple allegations that Moore had inappropriate contacts with teen girls. Some conservative outlets had attacked that initial report as “fake news.”
