Roy Moore Changes Story About Female Accusers, Goes Up In New Poll Thanks To Trump’s Support
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore has changed his story about the nine women who accused him of sexual misconduct.
During a campaign stop in Henagar, Alabama, on Nov. 27 Moore said he did not “know any of [the women],” notes Newsweek.
However, earlier this month, Moore told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he did know Debbie Wesson Gibson, who claimed in The Washington Post that Moore dated and kissed her in 1981, when she was 17:
I remember her as a good girl. 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.
Moore also told Hannity that he knew Gloria Thacker Deason, who recalled to The Washington Post how Moore took her on dates and gave her wine when she was 18 years old, one year below the legal limit.
Beverly Young Nelson, who claimed Moore tried to rape her when she was 16, produced a high school yearbook that Moore apparently signed in 1977 only days before the alleged attempted rape.
Gloria Allred, who represents Nelson, said she is willing to turn over the yearbook for authentication if Moore will agree to testify under oath.
According to a new poll by Change Research, Moore has pulled ahead of his opponent Democratic candidate Doug Jones by 49 to 44 percent, thanks to support from President Donald Trump.
The poll found that 16 percent of Trump supporters believed the women ten days ago, but after Trump’s support of Moore, only 9 percent believe them women while 63 percent think the women are lying.
