Roy Moore accuser says she added note to her yearbook

Posted December 11, 2017

Most senior Republicans in Alabama say they will vote for their party's Senate candidate on Tuesday despite allegations that Roy Moore preyed on teenage girls.

Attorney Gloria Allred (R) and Beverly Young Nelson hold up a picture showing a message and a signature of Roy Moore during a press conference on November 13, 2017, in NY, alledging that Roy Moore sexually assaulted Nelson when she was a minor in Alabama without her consent.

The president has cast Democratic candidate Doug Jones as too liberal for Alabama.

"Judge Moore's going to go to Washington, Judge Moore is going to win and I highly doubt there's going to be a Senate investigation", Young said, referring to the possibility of a Senate Ethics Committee probe into numerous women's allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore. "It's a disgusting new low that the President, the RNC, and the rest of the Republican Party are trying to help send a pedophile to the US Senate, and the American people won't soon forget it". At that time, according to Nelson, Moore was pursuing a sexual relationship with her and had groped and tried to rape her. Nelson's attorney, Gloria Allred, had incorrectly attributed the notes to Moore when she and Nelson revealed the yearbook page at a press conference last month.

Roy Moore is facing allegations of misconduct from numerous women. You know, the yearbook?

Britt asked Moore if he believes the allegations were made against him because of the Ten Commandments controversy or because he said same sex marriage was unconstitutional.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she intends to vote for the embattled Moore, as do the state attorney general, auditor, secretary of state, agriculture commissioner and public service commission president.

Trump also told the crowd: "We can not afford - this country, the future of this country - can not afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate".

"I did not know them", Moore said of the women who have accused him.

President Trump thanked supporters who turned out to a campaign-style rally in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday.

Numerous Republicans have called on Moore to step aside in the race.

"I think it's going to be very hard for somebody to beat us in a few years", Trump said, pointing to the impact on 401 (k) investments. "It's that he is going to Pensacola", White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters on board Air Force One as Mr Trump flew to Florida.

Mr Trump also said he is expelling members of the violent street gang known as MS-13, which has its origins in Central America.

Trump also derided a "rigged system" at the rally, even though he won the 2016 presidential election.

Republicans hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate. Luther Strange, who lost the GOP runoff election to Moore. "Terrible. Terrible", Trump said.

A year ago, then-President-elect Trump held a post-election rally in Mobile, Ala., in front of a giant tree cut down by the mayor's office and brought to the football stadium as a backdrop.

"People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said.
