One of GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore’s accusers admitted Friday that she had doctored a yearbook inscription attributed to the Alabama nominee, saying “he did sign it” but noting she had added the “date and place.”
According to Fox News, Beverly Young Nelson confirmed she had altered the infamous yearbook note, but did not specify a reason or motive behind her actions. The woman insists that Moore wrote and signed the message, but admits she had “made notes to it.”
Nelson produced the yearbook inscription as proof that Judge Roy Moore had pursued a sexual relationship with her while she was a teenager. Her attorney Gloria Allred has scheduled a press conference for Friday afternoon.
Nelson is just one of several accusers who claim the Alabama Senate nominee had inappropriate sexual relationships with the women while they were teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
Moore denies the allegations, saying he never signed Nelson’s yearbook.
The 70-year-old nominee hopes to win Alabama’s special election on December 12th, filling the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he left Congress to join the Trump administration as Attorney General.
FIREWORKS: Kellyanne ROASTS CNN's Cuomo Over Moore Endorsement
White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway unloaded on CNN’s Chris Cuomo Tuesday, blasting the anchor for questioning President Trump’s “moral standards” and saying the President doesn’t want a “liberal Democrat representing Alabama” in the US Congress.
“The only endorsement that matters in [Moore’s] race is President Trump’s. When he came out questioning the ideology and the vote of Doug Jones; he’ll be a reliable vote for tax hikes, he’ll be a reliable vote against border security, he’ll be a reliable vote against national security, he’ll be a reliable vote against the second amendment, against life,” said Conway.
“It seems like you have no standard of morality; that it’s all political pragmatism,” shot-back Cuomo.
“You’re going to say that to me, really?” asked Conway. “The President has tremendous moral standards. Did you just tell the world that Senator Franken took a stupid photo and exercised poor judgment, but you’re not troubled by that? Is that because he’s a reliable vote for higher taxes?”
“The President has said the following: The allegations are troubling, Roy Moore has denied them, the President has said that they’re 40 years old, nobody came forward before, Doug Jones is a liberal Democrat, and he doesn’t want a liberal Democrat representing Alabama in the US Senate,” said Conway.
