Nelson said when she was 16, Moore groped her and tried to force her head onto his crotch in his vehicle behind the restaurant where she worked.

In a statement, Nelson said that Moore attacked her in his vehicle after offering her a ride home. She says he offered to give her a ride home after work one night but instead pulled the vehicle over and groped her. "I was scared. I felt that if I told anyone Mr. Moore would do something to me or my family", she said. "These allegations are disgusting and I believe them against him". I'm going to vote for Roy Moore to make a statement.' So, I don't interpret the 29 percent as condoning what Roy Moore did.

"He was also trying to pull my shirt off", the visibly upset Nelson continued.

"A reporter said to me: 'What do you think of these online reports that say you had a love child in college?' Well, it wasn't true". I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop. "I had tears running down my face". The woman, Beverly Young Nelson, said at a press conference that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 15 and 16. I am the District Attorney of Etiwah County. He told supporters, "I'm counting on you to stand with me at this critical moment by chipping in a donation to help me bust through the vicious lies and attacks and get the truth out to as many voters as possible before December 12". "Because there are groups that don't want me in the United States Senate", he said, naming the Democratic Party and the Republican establishment and accusing them of working together.

The Senate candidate -who already has a long and controversial history-came under intense scrutiny Thursday when four women told the Washington Post he pursued them when they were between the ages of 14 to 18, while he was in his 30s. Toomey said Moore's explanations had been inadequate and that Republicans should consider Sen.

The press conference comes four days after The Washington Post first reported on sexual misconduct allegations against Moore, including from one woman who claimed he initiated sexual contact with her when she was 14 and he was 32.

Walker's office did not immediately respond Monday to an inquiry asking if his views on Moore had changed or whether he wanted to address the statements from Shilling and Taylor.

A new accuser said today that as a teenager in the 1970s she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore in a locked vehicle, further rocking the Alabama Republican's race for an open Senate seat. McConnell was also asked whether he believed the allegations by Corfman and the three other women.

"I think there's a special place in hell for those who actually perpetrate these crimes", White House legislative aide Marc Short said Sunday.
