Another Moore accuser comes forward

Beverly Young Nelson claims Roy Moore was sexually aggressive with her at age 16

WASHINGTON D.C. - Another woman has come forward to say Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when he was in his 30's and she was a teen.  

Moore is denying all allegations. 

Republicans are abandoning Alabama senate candidate, Roy Moore, as another woman comes forward to say Moore sexually assaulted her when she was just 16. 

"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 onto his crotch," said Beverly Young Nelson.

Beverly Young Nelson says, Moore was a regular in the restaurant where she worked and offered to give her a ride home, but instead, drove her behind the restaurant where she claims he became sexually aggressive.

She fought him off but says he warned her to keep silent.  

"He said you're just a child and he said I am the district attorney of Etowah county," Nelson.

This is the fifth woman to come out against Moore, he denies the allegations. 

"I don't even know the woman. I don't know anything about her. I don't even know what the restaurant is or was," said Moore.

Offering up his wife in defense.

"He has never one time lifted a finger to me. He is the most gentle, most kind man that I have ever known in my life," said Kayla Moore.

However, now even the leader of the senate says, Moore needs to go

"McConnell I think he should step aside," said Sen. Mitch McConnell.

"Do you believe allegations to be true?" asked the reporter.

"I believe the women, yes," said Sen. Mitch McConnell.

Moore is hoping supporters will find the timing of the women suspicious.

"I would probably have taken what Mr. Moore did to me to my grave had it not been for the courage of four other women," said Nelson.

Moore says nothing will force him out of the election less than a month away.  

But now Cory Gardner, the chair of the Republican Senatorial Committee, says that if Moore wins the rest of the Senate should vote to expel him.  

If that happens, the Governor would call for an entirely new election.
