A new allegation was made against Alabama Republican congressional candidate Roy Moore on Monday.
Beverly Nelson alleged that Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore brutally sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old.
Nelson, a self-described supporter of Donald Trump, read a jarring statement to reporters during a news conference in New York with her attorney Gloria Allred.
“Mr. Moore began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts. I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping he began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head into his crotch. I continued to struggle,” Nelson began.
"He said 'You're just a child.' And he said, 'I am the District Attorney of Etowah County. And if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you," accuser Beverly Young-Nelson says Roy Moore told her after the alleged sexual assault. (via CBS) pic.twitter.com/3GZNQqIO0A

Nelson said Moore groped her in his car after offering her a ride home and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him while she was crying and fighting him off.
Instead of driving her home, Nelson says Moore parked in a lot behind the restaurant and began assaulting her. He squeezed her neck as she fought him. She says when he finally gave up, he told her that no one would believe her if she told them what he had done. He then drove off, leaving her on the concrete in the dark.
“I was determined that I was not going to allow him to force me to have sex with him. I was terrified. He was also trying to pull my shirt off. I thought that he was going to rape me. I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop. I had tears running down my face.”

“My husband and I supported Donald J. Trump for President. This has nothing to do with the Republican Party or the Democratic Party,” Nelson said. “It has everything to do with Mr. Moore’s assault on me when I was a teenager.”
Allred called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to subpoena Moore.
Nelson had a school yearbook with a creepy note signed by Roy Moore to back up her claim.
Roy Moore might think he’s not leaving the Alabama Senate race, but things just got a whole lot worse for Republicans as they will either have to mount a write-in campaign to stop him or expel Moore from the Senate if he wins.
