On Friday, Beverly Young Nelson, one of the women accusing Judge Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, admitted that she forged part of the inscription she and attorney Gloria Allred say he made in a yearbook in 1977, Breitbart reported. Making the situation worse, the ABC News reporter coached Nelson, putting words in her mouth, while downplaying the enormous significance of her deceit, John Nolte said.
“Nelson admits she did make notes to the inscription,” ABC News said. “But the message was all Roy Moore.”
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook,” reporter Tom Llamas said.
“He did sign it,” she answered.
“And you made some notes underneath.”
“Yes,” Nelson said.

And then, after a woman admits to forging a document used in a campaign to destroy the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, ABC News quickly moves on as though it is not news of extraordinary consequence.
Llamas also fails to ask any follow-ups, such as “If the explanation is this simple, why wait all these weeks to offer it?” Or, “Why did you lie?”
Nelson is accusing Moore of attempting to assault her when she was just 16-years-old. With the election just four days away, this admission of forgery could not come at a better time for Moore. Nelson and Allred are planning a news conference Friday, but nothing will overcome the forgery admission.
How can anyone believe anything she says after admitting to such a thing? Early reports are that Nelson and Allred will produce an expert to prove the rest of the yearbook is not a forgery. So a proven forger is bringing in her own expert. What an insult to the people of Alabama.
Questions were raised about the signature immediately after Nelson and Allred presented the yearbook as “evidence” of wrongdoing on Moore’s part. Moore called on Allred to release the yearbook for analysis, but she has so far refused to do so, instead demanding a Senate hearing. Perhaps we now know why. Forgery and the possession of a forged document are crimes in Alabama.
Moreover, a statement put out by Moore essentially destroyed Nelson’s claims, including her statement that she worked at a restaurant she claimed Moore frequented.
“With Nelson now thoroughly discredited, this leaves two accusers against Moore,” Nolte said, adding:
One is Leigh Corfman, who claims Moore molested her as a 14-year-old child. She is the most credible of the three, but the narrative behind her story, that Moore’s abuse resulted in Corfman’s living a troubled life of “drinking, drugs, boyfriends, and a suicide attempt,” is directly contradicted by contemporaneous court records.
Moore’s final accuser is Tina Johnson, a woman who claims Moore groped her butt in his office in 1991. But, again, as was the case with Corfman and Nelson, the left-wing media outlets reporting these allegations (the Washington Post, AL.com) either failed to fully vet the accusers or withheld crucial context.
Thanks to New Media’s going behind these discredited outlets to fact check the reporting, we now know that Johnson did not tell the entire truth. She was not in Moore’s office “on business.” If she was in Moore’s office at all, it was due to a bitter custody battle where Moore represented Johnson’s mother, who was trying to gain custody of Johnson’s 12-year-old son based on the claim that Johnson was an “unfit, absent, and unstable mother.”
Moore responded to the news with a tweet highlighting the inconsistencies of her story:
Boyfriend at the time says she lied.
Employees of the restaurant say she lied.
Customers of the restaurant say she lied.
Her step son says she lied.
Now she herself admits to lying.
Let’s count how many national outlets will ignore the fact that she admits to lying. https://t.co/9D5OYCVORx
