NEW YORK-A new accuser has come forward accusing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore with allegations that Moore assaulted her when she was a minor in Alabama.

Women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York City on Monday, November 13. Along with Allred Beverly Young Nelson announced her “wishes to state what she alleges Roy Moore did to her without her consent”.  Nelson was 16 at the time of the alleged incident.

 

Nelson said that she and her husband supported Donald Trump for president and that her coming forward on Monday “has nothing whatsoever to do with Republicans or Democrats.”

“It has everything to do with Mr. Moore’s sexual assault when I was a teenager,” Nelson added.

Nelson said defiantly, “He no longer has any power over me and I no longer live in fear of him.”

Nelson described an incident in which Moore signed a school yearbook of hers when she was 16.

“He wrote in my yearbook as follows: ‘To a sweeter more beautiful girl, I could not say Merry Christmas, Christmas, 1977, Love, Roy Moore, Old Hickory House. Roy Moore, DA.'”

She said after the incident, Moore had offered to drive Nelson home after work, during which she alleges he forced himself on Nelson and groped her in a locked car.

“I trusted Mr. Moore because he was district attorney, I thought he was doing something nice to offer to drive me home,” said Nelson.

Nelson alleges she fought off Moore in the car as he squeezed her neck, forcing her head onto his crotch.

She said that Moore eventually gave up, and told her, “You’re just a child, I’m the district attorney if you tell anyone about this no one will ever believe you.”

Allred stated in the press conference that Nelson is “willing to testify under oath” to the statements she provides on Monday against Moore.

Allred then called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold a public hearing where Nelson would voluntary appear and testify before lawmakers on the incident.

In answer to the newest charges against Moore his  senate Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead called out Allred as a “sensationalist leading a witch hunt” against the candidate in a campaign e-mail released on Monday.

“She is only around to create a spectacle. Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies,” the statement added.

Armistead maintains that Moore is an “innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone.”

He adds, “This is a witch hunt against a man who has had an impeccable career for over 30 years and has always been known as a man of high character. Let it be understood: the truth will come forward, we will pursue all legal options against these false claims and Judge Moore will be vindicated.”
