    Gloria Allred Holds Press Conference With Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson

    Gloria Allred Holds Press Conference With Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson

    Says Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 in car behind diner at which she worked.

    Attorney Gloria Allred has scheduled a press conference at 2:30 PM EDT with an alleged Roy Moore accuser, adding to the dumpster fire of Alabama’s special senate election.

    An article published by the Washington Post last week featured four women, one of whom allege Moore engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct when she was but a teenager and he was in his thirties. One of his accusers alleged Moore took her out on dates and bought her alcohol. At the time, she was 18 and the legal drinking age was 19. Moore said in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show last week that he remembers the woman, but doesn’t recall if they dated.

    Monday afternoon, Gloria Allred joined Beverly Nelson, a fifth accuser, who alleged Moore acted inappropriately when she was a teenager.

    A tearful Nelson told her story, alleging Moore forced himself on her while in a car. She was 16 at the time of the alleged incident. Summarized by the Chicago Tribune:

    She said Moore was a regular customer at the restaurant where she worked after school in Gadsden, Ala. She said he would talk to her and sometimes pull the ends of her hair, which she considered flirtatious but didn’t bother her.

    One night when she was 16, Moore offered to drive her home, she said, but instead parked the car behind the restaurant and touched her breasts and locked the door to keep her inside. She said he squeezed her neck while trying to push her head toward his crotch and tried to pull her shirt off.

    Moore finally stopped and as she got out of the car, he warned her no one would believe because he was a county prosecutor, Nelson said. She said she quit her job the following day.

    Nelson said that shortly before that, days before Christmas, she’d brought her high school yearbook to the restaurant and Moore signed it. A copy of her statement distributed at the news conference included a picture of what she said was his signature and a message saying, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.'”

    Nelson said she told her younger sister about the incident two years later, told her mother four years ago and told her husband before they married. She said she and her husband supported Donald Trump for president.

    **************************

    BEFORE THE PRESS CONFERENCE:

    Since the allegations broke, Moore has conceding dating younger women and said he knows two of his accusers, but not the youngest two. Moore remains vehement in his denial of the allegations and contends a conspiracy was set in motion to derail his senate bid. Before the allegations broke, Moore maintained a nine-point lead over his Democratic opponent.

    The entire ordeal is shaping up perfectly along predictable factions. Republican mainliners are siding with accusers and withdrawing support (most of them had backed Moore’s Republican primary opponent Luther Strange). Conservative Senator Mike Lee withdrew his endorsement of Moore and Sen. Cruz called the allegations ‘serious and disturbing’ and said Moore should withdraw from the race if the allegations are true.

    Senate Majority leader McConnell graduated from the “if true” qualifier Monday, saying he believes Moore’s accusers:

    Moore would hear none of it:

    Sens Snow and Hatch joined the calls for withdrawal:

    The allegations aside, the entire ordeal is the perfect establishment and media vs. (what used to be Tea Party) populist underdog candidate.

    Myself and others believe that the allegations, the media frenzy, and the calls to withdraw by so-called establishment Republicans serve to embolden Moore’s support.

    Kemberlee: I heard today that if the Alabama Republican Party withdraws its endorsement, that would automatically nullify the election results if Moore wins. Can’t recall on which radio news service, maybe Fox. Now more than ever, I wonder who set this up.

      Beverly Nelson may be heavier, but she is still very pretty. However, the video you referenced is well done and shows the artifice involved in the Gloria Allred production. The actress, Ms. Nelson, is actually reading a script (probably written by the Gloworm).

        ANOTHER nutter heard from…!!! They’re crawling out of the woodwork!

        She’s reading from her own notes, just like you would in the circumstances.

        If she were an “actress”, she’ be polished and poised. Just like you WOULD NOT.

    This does not prove that Ms. Young worked there, that Moore was a regular, or that he assaulted her — but it does prove that a foolish, baseless claim repeated by Moore’s wife to undermine Young was complete garbage. If journalists are able to establish that Moore dined at the Olde Hickory House frequently, his blanket denial will be dead. It’s worth noting that Mrs. Moore has also (a) shared the baseless allegation that previous accusers had been paid, (b) promulgated the nonsense that Leigh Corfman’s (the first accuser) mother said her daughter was lying, based on the location of a telephone in their family home, and (c) appears to have recycled a pre-scandal list of pastors who once supported her husband’s candidacy — at least three of whom now say she did not get their permission to include them as current backers and have asked to be removed from the roster. Separate attempts to “prove” Moore’s innocence include doctoring images of the yearbook inscription he appears to have made out to Young in 1977 (compare the altered image with the actual image):

    This apparent hoax originates from a Twitter feed that also falsely asserted that the Olde Hickory House was never spelled with an ‘e,’ which is disproven by both the city directory and contemporaneous advertisement shown above. Others are resting their theories on the numeral ‘7’ looking slightly different in separate elements of the yearbook message (perhaps the least ridiculous issue being raised), which shifts from cursive in the note to printed letters after the signature. A separate theory brewing involves speculating that Young couldn’t have received her yearbook in December, as she says (which I’ve addressed, with other social media users and reporters stating that the timeline was entirely plausible, especially because she transferred high schools). As for Mrs. Moore’s stream of rash falsehoods, her defenders will say that it’s understandable, if not romantic, that a woman would do anything she could to help her embattled spouse. (Surely they feel the same way about Hillary Clinton). But that defensive impulse, no matter how relatable, should not give anyone license to repeatedly create or spread fake information. I’d also bet that if the roles were reversed and the accusers’ families were exposed as sharing fraudulent claims in defense of their loved ones, Mrs. Moore’s apologists would wield those disproven claims as evidence against the women’s stories.

    To recap: Debunking Kayla Moore’s conspiratorial social media posts does not affirmatively prove that Roy Moore is guilty of what his accusers say he did — even if even more accounts about his pattern of behavior with teenage girls continue to crop up. It does, however, call into question the credibility of Moore’s most ardent defenders, whose desperate and sloppy theorizing undercuts their trustworthiness as sources every time a bogus claim is raised and cut down. And again, what would be truly devastating to Moore’s pushback is compelling evidence — in the form of records or witnesses — that can blow up his statement that he never met Corfman or Young, or that he didn’t dine at the Olde Hickory House in the late 1970s. I’m open to changing my mind based on proof (that’s why I followed the evidence about the restaurant today), but as of right now, my tentative conclusion remains the same: The women are credible. He, and the fever swamp toiling on his behalf, are not. Drain the swamp.

    Did I say that today would be interesting…???

    Yes. I DID say that.

      You’re good at linking big heaping piles of doodoo. Which is all that is.

      Not one thing debunking anything that has been said other than reports “Olde” was spelled incorrectly. One I never mentioned by the way as it was a silly one.

      The rest is just horseshit. You’re good at shoveling that stuff and just eat it up.

        Poor old nutter. You can’t even read honestly.

          More horespucky. So Mrs. Moore made a mistake about the restaurant. That prove guilt? No.

          As for the “doctored” picture of the yearbook, I guess CNN is now on Moore’s side, since that image was first displayed by them. All the others were black and white photo’s.

          You’re just too easy. Happens when you follow the progs and swallow, hook, line, sinker.

            “Mrs. Moore made a mistake about the restaurant. That prove guilt? No.”

            Mrs. Moore published a patently false statement with the apparent intent of deceiving anyone who was stupid enough to read her campaign of bullshit.

            Does that prove Moore is guilty? Of course not. It just proves his wife is a liar with an agenda.

            We call this “suggestive evidence” in the law.

            “It just proves his wife is a liar with an agenda.”

            You must be a really bad lawyer.

            To be a lie would require she knew it was false. Show us the proof she knew this, or it is you that is the liar.
            It was widely reported that “Olde” was an incorrect spelling, now shown to possibly be incorrect. Even that is an uncertainty at this point. A directory is not concrete proof.

          Let’s try again.

          It’s worth noting that Mrs. Moore has also (a) shared the baseless allegation that previous accusers had been paid, (b) promulgated the nonsense that Leigh Corfman’s (the first accuser) mother said her daughter was lying, based on the location of a telephone in their family home, and (c) appears to have recycled a pre-scandal list of pastors who once supported her husband’s candidacy — at least three of whom now say she did not get their permission to include them as current backers and have asked to be removed from the roster.

          Does it matter where a bogus image originates? I suggest it does NOT. If you publish it as accurate, you are responsible for it.

          I also assert that the nutters on the blog-0-sphere are complicit liars, too, if they used that image.

    Fox News host Sean Hannity issued an ultimatum to GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore over his response to the flood of sexual harassment allegations against him.

    Hannity gave Moore 24 hours to either explain the inconsistencies in his account or drop out of the race. If not, Hannity — who supported Moore early on — will withdraw his support. Hannity’s ultimatum came after a fifth woman accused Moore of making advances on teenage girls while he was an attorney in his 30s.
