On Friday, Beverly Young Nelson, the woman who accused Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore of molesting her when she was 16-years-old and who brought out a signed copy of her yearbook from Moore to prove her connection to him, admitted that she had written the alleged time and location of the signature below the signature.
Here’s the tape from ABC News:

Nelson stated of Moore’s denial, “That really hurt me. God knows, and Roy knows, and I know what happened…He did sign it.” When asked by a reporter if she made notes underneath, she answered, “Yes.”
This is bad enough – it’s ridiculous that attorney Gloria Allred and Nelson didn’t reveal that fact when they originally showed the yearbook. It calls into question whether any of the other writing was tampered with; being honest and forthright would have been the only decent policy here. What’s more, Nelson writing the time and location under Moore’s signature but failing to disclose it pegs the date to Nelson’s memory without acknowledging that Moore didn’t date the signature in the first place.
