Default New woman accuses Roy Moore of sexual assault when she was a minor

A woman says Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a minor.

Beverly Young Nelson said Monday that the alleged incident occurred in 1977, when she was a 16-year-old waitress in a Gadsden, Ala., restaurant where Moore, then 30, was a regular customer and would often flirt with her.

A week or two later, Nelson said, she was waiting to get a ride home from work from her boyfriend, who was late, when Moore offered to drive her. Nelson said that Moore groped her in his car without her consent. When she told him to stop, Nelson said Moore squeezed the back of her neck and tried to force her head “onto his crotch.”

“I was terrified,” Nelson said in a detailed statement delivered at a press conference in New York City, where she was introduced to reporters by her lawyer, Gloria Allred. “I thought that he was going to rape me.”

Nelson said that at some point Moore gave up and warned her not to tell anyone about the encounter.

“He then looked at me and said, ‘You are a child. I am the district attorney,’” Nelson recalled. “If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you.”

A spokesman for Moore’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment, but Moore, now 70, has fiercely denied previous accusations.

Nelson said that she met Moore when she was a 15-year-old waitress at the restaurant. On Dec. 22, 1977, Nelson said that she brought her high school yearbook to work, and Moore asked her to sign it.



“To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say ‘Merry Christmas,'” Moore allegedly wrote in the yeabook, signing it: “Love, Roy Moore, D.A.”

She showed the page to reporters at the press conference.

Nelson is the fifth woman to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct.

She said she was inspired to come forward by Moore’s other accusers.

“If I thought I was Mr. Moore’s only victim, I probably would have taken my secret to my grave,” Nelson said. “Mr. Moore no longer has any power over me, and I will no longer live in fear.”

Nelson said that her coming forward has nothing to do with politics, noting that both she and her husband, a truck driver, voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Allred, who represented some of the women who accused President Trump and Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct or assault, called for a Senate hearing on the allegations. Nelson, Allred said, is willing to testify under oath.

On Thursday, the Washington Post published its bombshell report quoting a woman, Leigh Corfman, who alleged that in 1979 — when she was 14 and Moore was 32 — Moore partially undressed her and himself, touched her over her undergarments and guided her hand to touch him. The age of consent in Alabama was then and continues to be 16.

The story also quoted three other women who said Moore hit on them when they were 16 to 18 and he was in his 30s. Moore initially dismissed the entire report as “fake news” and an attack by “the Democratic Party and the country’s most liberal newspaper.” On Friday, Moore denied even knowing Corfman, who told the Post she with her mother when she met him. Her mother, Nancy Wells, confirmed her daughter’s account.

I haven't been following the Moore story very close. Is there anything more than he said/she said to any of the accusations thus far?

Yes, There are collaborative witnesses. Also the accuser is a Trump supporter.

Yes, there are so-called witnesses that collaborated with the WaPo hit piece. But there is no evidence to corroborate the accusers story.

I have yet to understand the "she voted for Trump." comment. But it hangs there as though it gives her story credence.

Like her accusation of molestation, how can it be proven? And doesn't it make one wonder if this whole salacious story is really about Trump?

To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say "Merry Christmas"
Christmas, 1977
Love, Roy Moore, DA
Unless the DA stands for Dumbledore's Army, yeah that's him. And the photos of his signature in the yearbook look nearly identical to his signature today.

So we're at a 5th woman, this time with harder evidence through him signing her yearbook, with a note that a 30 year old really, really should not be writing a 15 year old. Pile that on with the other four accounts, with over 2 dozen sources per the WaPo's reporting, and multiple corroborators including family, friends, and one of Moore's former colleagues who came out and said that he has a history of trolling HS football games and malls, looking to get with teen girls. Tack his rather poor defense and occasional non-denials and "I don't remember"s on Sean Hannity's show. And as much as I don't agree with Hannity, he gave a very fair interview to Roy Moore, almost coaching the guy.

How about we throw in locals recalling his predatory behavior in the 70s and 80s and possibly being banned from a mall for prowling for minors.

Gadsden locals say Moore's predatory behavior at mall, restaurants not a secret | AL.com

If there was an answer it would be either a write-in campaign for another Republican, maybe Luther Strange if he wanted to, or cross party lines and support Doug Jones. Roy Moore was already an awful choice for Senate regardless of the letter after his name, this just makes it so, so much worse.
