Roy Moore, the Prosecutor concedes, adding a date-Yearbook
Jonathan Serrie has the details.
One of the women, the accused, the Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is making progress on her when she was a teenager and he was the local state’s attorney admitted on Friday for the written part of the Yearbook inscription that would be offered as evidence, a new crack in your story, that Moore gives an opening to attack your credibility.
Beverly Young, Nelson says now, that part of the inscription in the vicinity of Roy Moore’s signature written by Moore.
Beverly Young, Nelson admitted to ABC News that they added “notes”, what she says, is Roy Moore’s signature in her high school Yearbook, an inscription, and the famous attorney Gloria Allred is shown, as evidence of the then-30-something Moore after a inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. The “notes” below the signature and the hand written date and place. Nelson still insisted on, that Moore most of the message wrote.
“Beverly, he did sign your Yearbook?” ABC’s Tom llamas asked you.
“He did sign it,” she said.
“And she made a few notes below it?” Lamas asked.
“Yes,” she answered.
While Nelson did not specify exactly what you added to the inscription, the text is below the Moore’s signature: “12-22-77 Olde Hickory House.”
During the original press conference with Allred in November, in which you read your original accusation, Nelson, and wrote the entire inscription, to Moore, including date and place.
“He wrote in my Yearbook as follows: ‘a sweet, lovely, girl, I could not say, Merry Christmas, Christmas, 1977, love, Roy Moore, Olde Hickory House. Roy Moore, THERE,'” she said.
At the time, to write to Nelson pass, the date and the name of the restaurant itself. The implication was that it was written by Moore.
Moore tweeted on Friday: “Now you yourself says that is a liar.”
In a short statement on Friday, Moore’s campaign lawyer Phillip Jauregi, the candidate, saying, “What [Nelson and Allred] said [in November] was either a lie, or what you have said here today, is a lie, and the voters have echoed.”
Moore denied the signing of the year book and said he didn’t know Nelson at the time. Moore, went on to become a judge and then the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court’s later case ruled against Nelson in a 1999 divorce.
The Moore campaign in question the authenticity of the inscription has, since the claim showed up last month.
During a press conference in Atlanta on Friday, Nelson and Allred stood by their assertion that Moore has enrolled himself, a message in the Yearbook. But Allred acknowledged, the last part, including the date and place was written by Nelson.
“Beverly shows you added, to remind you, who was Roy Moore, and where and when Mr. Moore signed her Yearbook,” Allred said.
Allred said a handwriting expert by the name of Arthur T. Anthony noted that the signature of Moore and published a report on its findings.
“I want everyone to know that I stand by my earlier statement that Roy Moore sexually harassed me,” Nelson said.
Last month, the Moore campaign is required to verify that a handwriting expert be allowed, the Yearbook.
“Publication of the year book, so that we can determine is it real, or is it a Scam,” Jauregui said at the time. He repeated that demand on Friday afternoon.
Moore, 70, is running against Doug Jones in a bruising, to fill in the special election for the Senate seat to Jeff Sessions, the President of the Trump named attorney General, and then kept on a preliminary basis, by Luther strange. The election is Tuesday.
The Nelson prosecution had strengthened the claims of other women, that Moore was looking for relationships with teenage girls in the late 1970s. Leigh Corfman claims Moore molested her when she was 14. Another woman claimed Moore, groped her in his office in 1991.
An update to this story below reflects that Beverly write grants to Young Nelson, what is characterized by ABC News as “notes”, what she says, is Roy Moore’s signature, and that the only scores below the signature, date, and place. Also, the headline on the story now that Nelson is, the writing part of the inscription itself, rather than part of the forging.
