(National Sentinel)Â Alabama Senate Race: A woman who accused Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore of unwanted sexual advances when she was a teen has admitted during a media interview that she forged a portion of his alleged signature in her yearbook.
As reported by Breitbart News, Beverly Nelson and her attorney Gloria Allred have used the yearbook as evidence that Moore was romantically attracted to Nelson when she was in high school in the late 1970s and he was an adult district attorney in Etowah County.
In an appearance with Allred onÂ ABC News‘ “Good Morning America” program on Friday, however, Nelson admitted that she added “notes” to the alleged message left by Moore since.
She hasÂ claimed that in 1977 Moore groped her in the parking lot of a restaurant where she worked.
â€œNelson admits she did make notes to the inscription,â€ ABC News tells us. â€œBut the message was all Roy Moore.â€
â€œBeverly, he signed your yearbook,â€ ABC News reporter Tom Llamas says.
â€œHe did sign it,â€ she replies.
â€œAnd you made some notes underneath.â€
â€œYes,â€ Nelson said.
Beverly Young Nelson, one of the women accusing GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, tells @GMA it “sickens” her to think what might happen if Moore is elected. https://t.co/wuEGWr0kng pic.twitter.com/lcp5OY4x3A

Critics immediately pounced on the admission, with many demanding to know why Nelson and Allred weren’t upfront about Nelson’s changes when the accusations were made and the yearbook introduced as evidence.
Moore and his attorneys have called the signature completely false and requested weeks ago to have an independent handwriting expert examine the yearbook.
â€œWe demand that you immediately release the yearbook to a neutral custodian so that our expert and you can send you expert as well, so that our expert can look at it, not a copy on the internet,â€ the campaign attorney, Phillip L. Jauregui, said last month.
â€œThe actual document so we can see the lettering. We can see the ink on the page. We can see the indentations and we can see how old is that ink. Is it 40 years old or is it a week old?â€
He saidÂ that he did not want to â€œmake any allegations,â€ but mentioned that the two â€œ77sâ€ signed in the yearbook should be looked at. Also, Moore has said he never signed his name followed by the letters “D.A.,” for district attorney.
â€œWeâ€™re going to present evidence that we think is important on the issue whether Roy Moore signed the yearbook,â€ Nelsonâ€™s lawyer, Allred told ABC News Friday.
