On Tuesday morning, Gloria Allred, the attorney representing one of the women accusing Roy Moore of sexual assault, told CNN that she would turn over her client’s yearbook to authenticate Moore’s alleged signature in exchange for Moore’s testimony under oath.
The Hill reported that Allred and her client, Beverly Young Nelson, presented the yearbook signature to the public as evidence to support Nelson’s sexual assault allegations against Moore.
Nelson’s allegations came after the Washington Post broke the initial 40-year old accusations against Moore, claiming that he had several sexual encounters with minors.
Allred spoke about how Moore would eventually have to face a Senate Select Committee on Ethics, but CNN host Alisyn Camerota seemed upset by Allred’s reluctance to hand over the yearbook in light of the Senate race.
“This would be good information for voters to have before that, to know if that was an authentic signature in the yearbook,” Camerota said, while Allred continued to lambast Moore.
The quote from the yearbook in question reads, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A.”
Moore vehemently denies having had any personal relationship with Nelson.
Gloria Allred, who is representing Moore accuser, declines to say whether she will submit yearbook inscription in question for third party verification prior to the election https://t.co/K5dBbRDjNt— New Day (@NewDay) November 28, 2017
