Beverly Young Nelson is one of the women to make sexual allegations against Alabama GOP Senate candidate. In her tearful public interview, she showed her high school yearbook that was allegedly signed by Moore. This was supposed to be her proof that Moore made improper sexual advances to her when she was in high school and he was in his 30s.
Moore’s attorney has been pushing to have the yearbook scrutinized to see if the signature is a forgery, which is what Moore contends. Nelson’s legal team said they would allow the signature to be tested by only by an independent firm.
Now it seems that Gloria Allred, Nelson’s famed attorney had not even asked her client if she witnessed Moore signing the yearbook, throwing further suspicion on the woman’s claim.
(Breitbart) – Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson, said she had not asked her client if she saw Moore sign her yearbook.
Questions had been raised by the Moore campaign a day earlier at a press conference in Birmingham, AL about the authenticity of the signature, which Allred had held up as evidence to bolster Young’s claim against Moore.
Partial transcript as follows:
TUR: Does your client, Beverly Young Nelson, remember him signing it?
ALLRED: She remembers — well, she remembers being with him. It was on the counter. She alleges that he took it, that he signed it and she was thrilled that he had signed it, because, as far as she knew, he was a D.A. and that was an important position…
What causes me to question Nelson’s claim is the fact that she seemed so emotionally distraught and in tears when she made her accusation. She made it look like she it was so traumatic, but if that is true, then why did she wait 40 years to make her allegation Why not make it when Moore was running for the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court?
