Alabama Judge Roy Moore rejected accusations leveled against him Monday that he groped a teen waitress decades ago in a parking lot behind where she worked, and said it was just another attempt to derail his Senate bid.
Gloria Allred held a press conference with Beverly Young Nelson, who said Moore sexually assaulted her. But Moore said the new charges were "absolutely false."
"I want to address what’s been brought out on television today by Gloria Allred and a client that she has about things I allegedly did," he said.
"I want to make it perfectly clear, the people of Alabama know me, they know my character, they know what I’ve stood for in the political world for over 40-years," he said. "And I can tell you without hesitation, this is absolutely false."
"I can tell you without hesitation, this is absolutely false. I never did what she said I did. I don't even know the woman," said Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, who was responding to Beverly Young Nelson's allegations of sexual assault. pic.twitter.com/23DUsuvYkW— CBS News (@CBSNews) November 14, 2017
I never did what she said I did," he said. "I don't even know the woman. I don’t know anything about her. I don’t even know where the restaurant is or was."
Despite his claim, Nelson showed her high school yearbook, which appeared to be signed by Moore.
Nelson's accusation led many more Republicans to call for him to drop out of the race and un-endorse him. But still, Moore argued that these claims are all false, and are aimed at tanking is election bid.
"If you look at this situation, you’ll see that because I’m eleven points ahead, or ten points or eleven points ahead, this race being just 28 days off, that this is a political maneuver and has nothing to do with reality," he said. "It's all about politics."
