After people started questioning the Washington Post’s not-so rock solid report on Roy Moore dating a 14 year old while he was in his early 30’s, a woman named Beverly Young Nelson held a press conference with feminist lawyer Gloria Allred – recounting in vivid detail how Moore allegedly sexually assaulted her in a car, choking and groping her before dumping her on the pavement.
"Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me, him putting his hands on my breast," Beverly Young-Nelson says, describing alleged assault in Moore's car https://t.co/jrzsy7IrVy pic.twitter.com/U1WM9CphnM

On top of that, Nelson held up her high school yearbook with Moore’s signature, and a note which read: “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore… Roy Moore, DA.”
BUT WAIT [UPDATE]:
It appears that at least part of the signature was forged:
Well, unretouched CNN photo DEFINITELY shows that "Moore D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House" was written in different-colored ink than the rest of the inscription.
It appears that this jalopy of an accusation has completely fallen apart. pic.twitter.com/IiA0QP0l2R

WOW – I could see her innocently adding the exact date and location to document it at the time, but NOT forging his last name. pic.twitter.com/XohbGsH8Fv

People have also pointed out that it’s highly unusual to sign a yearbook in December.
Given the evidence at hand, Moore is all but done with politics – and will now retire in shame. His neighbors will gossip and his wife is sure to be kicked off the bridge club.
In response, the New York Times reports that the Trump administration is thinking of kicking Jeff Sessions to the curb, returning him to his Alabama Senate seat.
One idea now being discussed under this scenario, brought up by two different White House officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, would be for Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama to immediately appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to what had been his seat when it becomes vacant again. Mr. Sessions remains highly popular among Alabama Republicans, but his relationship with President Trump has waned since he recused himself from the investigation of the role that Russia played in last year’s campaign.
As The Hill notes, “It is unclear how, if Moore is elected, the seat would become vacant.”
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.
Last Thursday the Washington Post accused Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979.
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.”
Mitch says OUT OUT OUT!
In response to the allegations, Mitch McConnell replied “I believe the women, yes.”
Reporter: Do you believe the Roy Moore allegations to be true?

McConnell supports a write-in candidate for the Alabama senate seat, saying “That’s an option we’re looking at.”
Moore, in response, tweeted “The person who should step aside is @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced. #DrainTheSwamp”

On Monday afternoon, NRSC chairman Cory Gardner released a statement saying, “I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office.”

I look forward to Trump’s tweet pointing out how he supported Moore’s opponent, Luther Strange, in the primaries.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
