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.
