BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The woman featured in a November 9 Washington Post story accusing Roy Moore of touching her inappropriately when she was 14 says she wants an apology.

Leigh Corfman wrote an open letter to Roy Moore in response to a Monday night campaign event in Henagar.

Her letter states: "You sent out your spokesmen to call me a liar. Day after day. Finally, last night, you did the dirty work yourself. You called me malicious, and you questioned my motivation in going public."

"These allegations are false. They are malicious and I don't know any of these women," Moore said at the Monday event.

Corfman countered in her letter, "I am telling the truth, and you should have the decency to admit it and apologize."

The letter comes as Moore continues to deny allegations of inappropriate behavior with women who said they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

"It's a smear campaign," Moore campaign spokesman and former Shelby County Commissioner Ted Crockett said Wednesday. "They've brought these accusations up, but they have no witnesses of each incident."

For her part, Corfman points out in her letter she told family and friends years ago. Those friends and her mother supported that claim in the Washington Post story.

During a campaign event in Montgomery, Moore's opponent Doug Jones was asked if Moore had the character to be U.S. Senator.

"No, I don't believe he has the character. His 40 year history has been one of divisiveness and trying to mislead the public from day one," Jones told reporters.

Moore will appear at a church in Mobile County Wednesday night.

The special election for Alabama's U.S. Senate seat is December 12.
