Roy Moore alters story about accusers

Roy Moore alters story about accusers

"During a rally Monday night, in which he declined to take any questions, Moore said he did not know any of [the women].' That contradicts previous statements he has made about his accusers.

Specifically, Moore has said that he did know Debbie Wesson Gibson, who told The Washington Post that the former Alabama chief justice dated and kissed her in 1981, when she was 17.

'I remember her as a good girl,' Moore told Sean Hannity earlier this month. 'I know her, but I don’t remember going out on dates. I knew her as a friend. If we did go out on dates, then we did. But I don’t remember that.'

In the same interview, he also admitted to knowing Gloria Thacker Deason, who told the Post that Moore took her on dates and gave her wine when she was 18. At the time, the legal drinking age in Alabama was 19.

Moore’s claim Monday also undermined an aspect of the defense utilized by his legal team. Attempting to rebut a claim from Beverly Young Nelson that Moore tried to rape her when she was 16, Moore’s attorney, Phillip Jauregui, said Nelson’s assertion that the pair had no contact after the alleged incident was false because Moore had been the judge on her divorce case. That claim has subsequently been found to be untrue on the basis of court records and interviews that show Nelson never came before Moore."


  1. He wins anyway. Alabama will elect a kiddie-fiddler in a Hopalong Cassidy costume before they'll go Democrat.

    1. The devil himself as long as he claims to be pro life and anti Washington.

  2. The yearbook that he signed "Roy Moore, DA 12-22-77" was a forgery. Beverly Young Nelson, the woman in the divorce case, saw his signature on her paperwork, and assumed the DA stood for District Attorney. Actually it was the initials of his assistant, who had the initials D.A. (I don't recall her name) - anyway, she didn't work for Moore until 1988 or 89. So when Nelson forged his signature in the yearbook, along with the D.A. initials...well D.A. wouldn't be working for Moore for another 11 years. Beverly Young Nelson must be svengali!

  3. Clearly the script note and his signature are not forgeries. It is very possible that the block-printed notations, including the letters DA, were written by somebody else.

    Obviously your contention that she "assumed the DA stood for District Attorney" cannot be true. Right under his signature (on the divorce dismissal) it says "Roy S Moore, Circuit Judge." In order for your statement to be accurate, she'd have to assume he was both the D.A. and the Judge!

    That would make it mighty easy to win cases!

    They key point is that the scripted note and the signature are obviously his, thus indicating that they did indeed know each other.

    The identity of the person who wrote the block-printed portion is essentially irrelevant. I suppose Nelson might have written that herself at the time to establish the date and location as well as to impress her high school friends that a grown-up D.A. signed her book.

    One thing you can establish is that the DA in the yearbook was not trying to duplicate the style of the DA in the divorce papers, so (1) they were written by two different people; and (2) one was not trying to forge the other. I cannot draw any conclusions about whether the DA in the yearbook was written by Moore as an addendum to his signature, or by Nelson simply making a note for reference to remind her who the signer was. Either possibility may be true.
