Body Language Analysis No. 4128: Roy Moore's youngest accuser, Leigh Corfman - Interview on "Today" - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Leigh Corfman is, to date, the woman who was the youngest (14 years old) at the time when she alleges Roy Moore engaged in sexual behavior with her. In the video above, she tells of how Roy Moore, then an assistant district attorney, approached her and her mother in the county courthouse, drove her to his home twice - without the knowledge of her mother - kissed her, undressed her, and seduced her. At the time Roy Moore would have been 32 years old.

A thorough nonverbal evaluation of Ms. Corfman in this interview demonstrates complete honesty. Specifically, there are no signals of insincerity or deception.

One telling moment is captured and discussed here.

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE (continuing at 6:42): A couple things, Roy Moore denies these allegations, and further says, he does not even - know you.

LEIGH CORFMAN: I wonder how many 'mes' he doesn't know?

Before, during - and to a greater extent after her answer, Leigh Corfman displays the expression shown in the above photo (6:54). In it, she projects a combination of Disgust and Anger. Intriguingly, men are significantly more likely than women to not see or mischaracterize this particular expression - and thus, also, are more blind to the emotions causing it.

Summary: Leigh Corfman's nonverbal, verbal, and paralanguage during this interview are all highly congruent. She is telling the truth regarding her interactions with Roy Moore in 1979.
