Roy Moore accuser Beverly Nelson admits she wrote part of Moore's yearbook inscription




 

One of the women who accused Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct when she was a teenager has admitted to forging a portion of the high school yearbook inscription used as proof in her accusations.

Beverly Young Nelson, the ex-waitress who alleged the Alabama politician groped her when she was just 16 years old, told ABC News on Friday that she added both the date and place to the then-30-something Moore's inscription.

Her notes read "12-22-77" and "Olde Hickory House," which was the restaurant Nelson reportedly worked at and where she said the GOP Senate candidate once frequented. Nelson and her famed attorney, Gloria Allred, later presented the note as evidence in court that Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the 1970s.


However, Nelson has also insisted that Moore still wrote the majority of the message and signed it.

Nelson and Allred will hold a press conference later on Friday, during which evidence will reportedly be presented to confirm that it was Moore's signature in the inscription.

"We're going to present evidence that we think is important on the issue whether Roy Moore signed the yearbook," Allred told ABC News.

Moore has vehemently denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him and claims the entire yearbook passage is a forgery.

Earlier Saturday, the New York Times published an article saying Meehan, 62, used thousands of dollars of taxpayer money to settle a sexual misconduct claim from a former female aide who accused of making unwanted romantic overtures. Ryan told Meehan to repay whatever taxpayer funds were used to settle the case, the speaker's spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said in a statement.
