Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Judge Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, finally admits to forging the inscription in the yearbook she originally claimed was written by Moore. Nelson still claims that Judge Moore wrote most of the message and signed it, but admits she made “notes” to it.
The old saying “always expect the unexpected” does not apply to Alabama politics. It’s more like “expect the expected”. Whether or not a claim is credible or false, you can always expect some type of mud to be thrown at one of the candidates. One year the Democrat candidate ran a campaign ad against Justice Harold See in the state Supreme Court race that featured a skunk in the ad to insinuate that See was a skunk. Can’t make this stuff up folks! While it was one of the lower points of Alabama politics, Justice See went on to win that election.
Now we know why Gloria Allred would not release the year book for an independent handwriting analysis to determine what Ms. Nelson has admitted: it’s a forgery. Many of the claims such as Roy Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall and the forged yearbook inscription, have been reported on The Trump Times. Now let’s see how long and how few of the mainstream news media will cover this bombshell of an admission in favor of Judge Moore.
Having this latest claim proven false, it could not happen at a better time for Judge Moore. Just in time for the weekend newspapers, media shows and after church lunch discussions. This latest development will only bolster the argument that Democrats aided by Sen. Mitch McConnell and establishment Republicans tried to derail Judge Moore at all costs. And for that the good people of Alabama will not take too kindly. Alabama voters go to the polls this coming Tuesday, December 12 to vote for their next United States Senator. I will still stick to my initial estimate that Moore will win by 6-8% of the vote, leaning closer to eight.
When I need to get a clear perspective I make a call to Fayette, AL to a longtime friend of mine. He has been active in Alabama politics back when it wasn’t “cool” to be a Republican when the state was controlled by Democrats and before he decided to kick back and relax. During a phone conversation earlier today he said, “I wonder how Gloria Allred is going to turn this lemon into lemonade?”
