Roy Moore responds to latest accuser Beverly Young Nelson: live updates
Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is expected to address the latest allegations made against him at a press conference this evening.
Beverly Young Nelson alleged the assault happened when Moore was a 30-something-year-old prosecutor in the Etowah County District Attorney's Office.
Nelson said she met Moore while working as a waitress at the Old Hickory House, a restaurant off U.S. 431 in Gadsden.
Nelson and New York attorney Gloria Allred, speaking today at a press conference, called on the Senate Judiciary committee to investigate the allegations ahead of the Dec. 12 Alabama special Senate election.
"Gloria Allred is a sensationalist leading a witch hunt, and she is only around to create a spectacle," said the statement, attributed to Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead.
