Summary: On Friday, Roy Moore’s accuser admitted to adding notes to the senate-candidate’s alleged yearbook inscription. 

Television viewers may remember Beverly Young Nelson. The Alabama woman appeared on television next to her lawyer, Gloria Allred, and she tearfully declared that she had been sexually assaulted by Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore in the 1970s when she was 16-years-old. During the press conference, she held up a yearbook in which Moore allegedly had written:


“To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore D.A., 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.”

On Friday, it was revealed however that part of the inscription was written by Nelson herself. Although she maintains that the message and signature were real, Nelson told ABC News that she had written the date and location underneath Moore’s name.

In November, Nelson appeared on television and showed the yearbook with Moore’s alleged inscription. Moore immediately responded that the date and restaurant name under his signature did not match his handwriting, and his lawyers demanded a handwriting analysis.

Nelson’s attorney, Gloria Allred, maintains that the rest of the inscription is real and that it is proof that Nelson knew Moore, who Nelson said groped her in his car after offering her a ride home.

“We think it’s important evidence that supports Beverly’s statements that Roy Moore asked to sign her yearbook when she was just 16 years old,” Allred said at the press conference, reported. “And it demonstrates that when Roy Moore stated ‘I do not know any of these women,’ that statement does not appear to be true.”

Moore is currently the Republican senate candidate in Alabama, and he is running against Democrat Doug Jones. Moore has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct with minors, and he has been reportedly banned by a local mall for bothering teen girls. Despite the allegations, Moore has continued to run for office, with support from Republicans, including President Donald Trump.

Nelson said that she had nothing to gain by coming forward, but she stated at Friday’s press conference that she is now in fear for her life.

“Since I spoke about my experience with Roy Moore when I was only 16 years old, I have been the target of threats and lies,” Nelson said. “As a result, I have had to live behind triple-locked doors, tinted windows, I’ve even had to have security accompany me when I went to a doctor’s appointment.”

Moore has denied the accusations of pedophilia and sexual harassment, and on Friday, he tweeted, “Now she herself admits to lying.”

Moore stated that he did not know Nelson at the time she claimed, and Fox News said that he had been the judge during her 1999 divorce and ruled against her.
