The Alabama candidate has denied all the allegations. She says that Moore instead parked the vehicle and sexually assaulted her. "Nelson admits she did make notes to the inscription", ABC News reported.

In a separate press conference late Friday afternoon in Montgomery, Ala., Moore's attorney Phillip Jauregui referenced Nelson's November 13 news conference where he said Allred and Nelson had said "everything written in that yearbook was written by Judge Moore". Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore.

"We did not ask the expert to examine the printing after the cursive writing and signature, because Beverly indicates that she added that to remind herself of who Roy Moore was", Allred said Friday. At a press conference just days after Nelson went public, Moore's attorneys said the date and restaurant name underneath Moore's signature appeared not to match other samples of Moore's handwriting.

Beverly Young Nelson was not among the five women who have told The Washington Post that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers.

Beverly Nelson's high school yearbook has become key evidence supporting her claim that the 34-year-old prosecutor was a regular at the Olde Hickory House restaurant where she worked as a teenager - and where she says he attacked her in his auto after she accepted his offer of a ride home one cold winter night.

Nelson said that she originally met Moore when he was a 30-year-old deputy district attorney in Etowah County and would regularly eat at a restaurant in Gadsden called Olde Hickory House. Now she herself admits to lying.

"And you made some notes underneath", Llamas said. She told CNN's Wolf Blitzer she would welcome an expert analysis of the yearbook message so long as it took place in a Senate hearing.

For the Moore campaign, which has been working to raise doubts about multiple accusations that he made sexual advances toward teenage girls when he was in his 30s, the Allred announcement was greeted as a political gift, and the campaign worked to suggest that more falsehoods would be revealed, without describing them specifically. He added: "Well, today it's a different story, isn't it?" "And it demonstrates that when Roy Moore stated 'I do not know any of these women, ' that statement does not appear to be true".

Allred acknowledged that Nelson added the date and restaurant name below the signature. Moore also said the handwriting in Nelson's yearbook was not his - adding that he was not the district attorney at the time, but the assistant district attorney.

Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones in a special election Tuesday to fill the seat vacated by Atty. Despite the allegations, Moore has continued to run for office, with support from Republicans, including President Donald Trump.
