Lawyer Gloria Allred brought forward another woman who said U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore had sexually assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old in Gadsen, Ala.

 Beverly Young Nelson said Moore, then the local prosecuting attorney, had assaulted her after offering her a ride home for a restaurant where she worked as a waitress and he was a regular customer. She rebuffed him, but he warned her to say nothing, because nobody would believe her word against his. She said she'd told her sister about it two years later and her mother and husband more recently. She said she was a Donald Trump supporter but had decided to come forward because of other women who'd spoken out.
