Beverly Young Nelson, 56, held a press conference in New York with embattled attorney Gloria Allred on Monday, alleging Judge Roy Moore sexually harassed her when she was 16-years-old.
Washington Examiner reports:
In a press conference Monday, Nelson described one encounter with Moore that occurred in 1975, when she was 16 years old.
Nelson said Moore offered to drive her home from work one night but instead parked in a “dark, deserted” part of a parking lot behind the restaurant where she worked. Nelson said Moore groped her and “began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head onto his crotch.”
“I was determined that I was not going to allow him to force me to have sex with him. I was terrified,” she said. “He was also trying to pull my shirt off. I thought that he was going to rape me.”
Nelson is the fifth woman to come forward with sexual allegations against Moore.
On Monday evening, Judge Moore vehemently denied Nelson’s accusations.
Here’s what he told the press:
MOORE: “Thank ya’ll for being here tonight. Thank-you to all the people have came out at this late hour and for being here. I want to address what’s been brought out on television today by Gloria Allred and a client she has about things I allegedly did. I want to make it perfectly clear, the people of Alabama know me, they know my character, they know what I’ve stood for in the political world for over 40-years. I can tell you without hesitation, this is absolutely false. I never did what she said I did. I don’t even know the woman. I don’t know anything about her. I don’t even know where the restaurant is or was. If you look at this situation you’ll see because I’m eleven or ten points or eleven points ahead, this race being just 28 days off, that this is a political maneuver and has nothing to do with reality. It’s all about politics.”
"I can tell you without hesitation, this is absolutely false. I never did what she said I did. I don't even know the woman," said Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, who was responding to Beverly Young Nelson's allegations of sexual assault. pic.twitter.com/23DUsuvYkW

Judge Roy Moore is under siege from the mainstream media and political class after the Washington Post published sexual advancement allegations against the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.
On Thursday the far left Washington Post accused Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979.
Judge Moore has denied the charges and says he’s going to reveal the motivations behind the WaPo hit piece in the next few days.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters today that Moore should drop out of the race.
When asked if he believes the allegations, McConnell replied, “I believe the women, yes.”
