Leigh Corfman being interviewd on NBC’s ‘TODAY.’

Leigh Corfman, who alleged earlier this month that Roy Moore sexually abused her nearly 40 years ago when she was a 14-year-old girl, said Monday that she “didn’t deserve to have a 32-year-old man prey upon” her.

In an exclusive interview with NBC’s TODAY (click here to see the interview) — her first on television since she made her allegations against the GOP Senate candidate in Alabama — Corfman, now 53, said she was simply a “14-year-old child playing in an adult’s world,” when Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her.

Moore has said, “I am not guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone.”

Corfman dismissed Moore’s denials of sexual misconduct with anyone, saying, “I wonder how many ‘me’s’ he doesn’t know.”
