Rush Limbaugh Smashes Judge Moore Accuser’s Claim About Being Locked In Car In 1977 — Child Locks Not Required Until 1980s
On his nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, Rush Limbaugh discussed recent sexual harassment allegations against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore by Gloria Allred’s client Beverly Young Nelson.
According to Nelson’s account reported by the Washington Examiner, “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.”

LIMBAUGH: “Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is denying that he ever met the woman who on Monday accused him of sexually assaulting her in a diner parking lot in 1977 when she was an underage teenager, calling her allegations ‘absolutely false,’ despite his apparent signature in her high school yearbook. ‘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.[…]
This is 1977? Somebody tell me: In 1977, were there child locks on the door? In other words, could the driver push a button that would make sure all windows and doors could not be opened? Was that present in 1977, because she says she couldn’t get out. But did child locks…? Were they in 1977 vehicles. I’m trying to remember what I had in 1977. I had a Pontiac… Well, it was a pretty big Pontiac. The car I had didn’t have them in there. But I didn’t drive every car that’s out there. You know, the button on the driver’s side where you can flip it and nobody can open a door.
It’s to protect kids from opening windows and doors when the car is moving. But if that wasn’t present… (interruption) Child-locking mechanisms have been required since 19… (interruption) Contained…? (interruption) Okay. They’ve been in the automobile since the early eighties. They’ve been required, is that what you’re saying? Required in automobiles since the early eighties? Cars have been built with the feature, not required. Cars began to be built with the child lock feature in the early eighties.
So it might be safe to assume that the door she was sitting next to she could have unlocked it, unless Roy Moore had a special custom lock called the female anti-escape lock on the passenger side of the front seat of his car. Well, she says she’s being overpowered. His hands are around her neck. Isn’t that right?
In addition to Limbaugh’s observation about the car lock, other aspects of Nelson’s account are being challenged as well.
In a video posted to YouTube on Monday, body language expert Bombard analyzed Judge Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s facial expressions and vocal discrepancies, concluding Gloria Allred’s client conveyed signs of deception.
Nelson was “acting,” and not a real victim, says Bombard.
Nelson’s first sign of “deception,” is visible as she stiffens up while explaining how Judge Roy Moore allegedly “attacked,” her when she was a “child,” says Bombard.
Nelson’s eye movements then demonstrate “rehearsed verbal communication,” adds Bombard.
Shortly after, Allred hugs an emotional Nelson, which Bombard believes is a form of “acting.”
Nelson, visibly nervous, can be seen staring directly as someone. Looking at a focal point during a speech helps calm nerves.
True victims of sexual harassment, especially those where the incident took places decades ago, will not burst into tears like Nelson. They will have had years to cope.
Judge Moore is then referred to as “Ray,” instead of “Roy.”
Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery.
The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.”
“Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor.
“”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added.
Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way.
The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced in Moore’ signature as Chief Justice. The “R” is noticeably longer in the signature of Chief Justice, as well.

In addition, Wictor points out the restaurant where Nelson alleges the incident took place was “forged,” incorrectly.
“”Old Hickory House” in Gadsden was never called “Olde Hickory House.” The person who forged the signature got the name wrong,” claims Wictor.
