Young-Nelson Young-Nelson saying in a Monday press conference that the Alabama politician sexually assaulted her when she was 16. She was fifth woman to accuse U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Speaking in New York with attorney Gloria Allred at her side, Young-Nelson emotionally detailed her time as a waitress at a restaurant that Moore frequented; Young-Nelson was 15 when Moore would come in and grab at her hair when she walked by. Not long after Young-Nelson turned 16, Moore offered her a ride home after her boyfriend was late. Instead of getting on the highway, Moore — an Etowah County district attorney at the time — drove around near a dumpster and locked the car’s doors.
Young-Nelson said she was a Donald Trump supporter in last year’s election and that her coming forward had “nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats. It has everything to do with Mr. Moore’s sexual assault when I was a teenager.” She said the four earlier accusers of Moore gave her the strength to speak publicly about her story, while Allred said Young-Nelson was prepared to testify under oath about her alleged assault.
