Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is now the state’s Republican candidate for U.S. Senate. Multiple women have recently accused Moore of sexual harassment. One of those women worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, as well as former VP Joe Biden.
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.

An attorney for Leigh Corfman, whose story of a sexual encounter with Roy Moore when he was 32 and she was 14, broke today, said Corfman stands by her story.
Hoover attorney Eddie Sexton told AL.com that Corfman has wanted to publicly talk about the time in 1979 when Moore dated her, but never felt like it was the right time.
“Her kids are out of the house now, grown, and I think she felt like it was the right time to do it,” said Sexton. “I’m sure she was scared to death.”
Corfman had been talking with reporters from the Washington Post for several weeks, he said.
