Lawyer says Moore accuser believes her life is in danger

The lawyer, who is representing Nelson ― one of several women who have accused Moore of sexual misconduct and assaultsaid that at Allred's request, an expert had analyzed the GOP Alabama Senate candidate's handwriting and signatures in public documents and compared them to the message and signature in Young's yearbook. Underneath Moore's alleged signature is a date and location that Nelson said Moore signed the yearbook - "12-22-77" and on the next line "Olde Hickory House", the restaurant where Nelson worked and she said Moore was a frequent customer.

At the November 13 news conference in NY where she initially aired her allegations, Nelson did not mention that she added anything to the note she said was Moore's.

Beverly Young Nelson was not among the five women who have told The Washington Post that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers. "And because his supporters have been saying that wasn't his signature".

She had claimed in a press conference last month that Mr Moore, who was in his 30s at the time, had written the passage during his visit to a diner where she was working as a waitress. "Nelson does not claim she tampered with Moore's actual signature. Nelson still attributes the note and signature to Moore", the site wrote.

"We've endured a lot of harassment throughout this campaign", Armistead said.

The election between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is Tuesday.

Attorney Phillip Jauregui says that during the original news conference, when the allegations came to light, Nelson claimed everything written in the year book was written by Moore.

"Furthermore, the headline on [the] story now specifies that Nelson admits to writing part of the inscription herself, rather than forging part of it".

The decision has infuriated the Palestinians, who seek Israel-annexed east Jerusalem as their own capital. On Friday, two protesters were shot dead in skirmishes with Israeli troops along Gaza's border.


The Moore campaign appeared to feel vindicated by the development, addressing the media in Montgomery late Friday afternoon.

Moore, the Alabama Senate Republican nominee, has repeatedly denied knowing Nelson or signing her yearbook or attempted to sexually assault her as she has claimed.

"We are very transparent", Allred said.

Beverly Nelson is fighting for credibility Friday. One woman, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 and Moore was 32 when he took her to his house, gave her alcohol and touched her sexually.

In recent weeks, Moore has said of his accusers, "I did not know any of them". He told Hannity that he did not remember dating girls between the ages of 16 and 18 but could not rule it out. "I still have some fear, but I refuse to be intimidated into silence or retract anything that I've said".

Trump's political team scheduled the rally last week after looking at polls that showed Moore likely to win - and Trump increasingly determined to back him. So instead they got as close as they could. Plus, one adviser said, if Moore loses, it won't be because Trump campaigned for him.

Nelson said she's been bombarded with threats since she came forward, and one person even sent her a photo of a casket. "If things like that are going on, you'd definitely hear about it".
