A Roy Moore accuser said she added notes beneath his alleged yearbook signature

A woman who has accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct says she made notes beneath a yearbook signature she claims the Alabama GOP Senate candidate authored.
Beverly Young Nelson – who claims Moore sexually assaulted her decades ago when she was 16 – adds that the Republican remains responsible for the controversial message written to her.
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook?” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas asked her during an interview Friday.
“He did sign it,” replied Nelson, who worked as a waitress at a restaurant in Gadsden, Alabama when Moore allegedly sexually assaulted her.These are the other high-profile men accused of sexual harassment and misconduct following Harvey WeinsteinMany of the allegations have resulted in resignation or termination from roles.
“And you made some notes underneath?” Llamas continued, prompting Nelson to respond “yes.”
Multiple women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct after the first claims against him emerged last month.
One woman accused Moore of initiating a sexual encounter with her in 1979 when she was 14 and he was 32.
Nelson last month presented a high school yearbook as evidence Moore knew her at age 16 upon coming forward with her account.
“To a sweeter, more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas,” the yearbook message reads. “Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A.”
The controversial note includes the date and the name of the restaurant that employed Nelson at the time beneath it.
Moore has fiercely denied the allegations against him, including Nelson’s account and her alleged evidence.
The Republican’s campaign has also rebuffed Nelson’s claim he truly signed the yearbook, criticizing her for not turning the document over for independent analysis.
Moore is competing with Democratic Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones ahead of the state’s Dec. 12 special election.
Multiple top Republicans have urged Moore to end his bid since the first allegations about his past behavior appeared in November.
President Trump on Monday endorsed Moore, however, tweeting that “we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama” on account of his Senate vote.
