ABC News has the story, and is this finally the end of Gloria Allred?
One of the women accusing Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, Beverly Young Nelson, told ABC News it “sickens” her to think what might happen if Moore is elected to the U.S. Senate.
Nelson has said Moore groped her four decades ago when she was a 16-year-old waitress and he was in his 30s. The Alabama candidate has denied all the allegations.
“It sickens me to wonder what may go on with him if he gets into office,” Nelson told ABC News’ Tom Llamas in an interview that aired on “Good Morning America” today.
“Maybe, you know, he could be doing this still. We don’t know. And then again I hope that he’s changed. I pray that he’s changed. I really do.”
She admits that she added notes, but the signature was “real”:

HOW WILL THIS AFFECT THE RACE? CURRENT POLLING
At this time, the latest polling shows that Judge Moore is leading Jones by a comfortable 7% margin.
The Raycom News Network/Strategy Research statewide telephone poll of 3,200 likely Alabama voters showed 50 percent said they would vote for Moore if the election were held today compared to 43 percent who said the same for Jones. Four percent were undecided; 3 percent indicate they plan to write-in a candidate.
The admission by Beverly Young Nelson will solidify support for the Judge and should also pull a couple more percentage points to his side.
