Kayla Moore, the wife of the Republican candidate for the United States Senate Roy Moore, vowed on social media on Monday that they will soon release evidence that several accusers were paid to speak out against him.
Also on Monday, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred conducted a press conference with Beverly Young Nelson at her side. Nelson has accused Roy Moore of attempting to rape her more than 30 years ago. Allred has represented various other women in the past who had lain accusations of sexual improprieties allegedly committed by other prominent men. Currently, there are five women who are accusing the former Alabama supreme court justice of sexual improprieties.
Following the press conference, Kayla Moore wrote on Facebook:
“This is the same Gloria Allred that did the very exact same thing to Trump during his campaign. Going on two months now they’ve been on a witch hunt here in Etowah County and our state advertising people to step forward with accusations and we are gathering evidence of money being paid to people who would come forward. Which is part of why we are filing suit!”
On Monday, Roy Moore said he would file a lawsuit against The Washington Post, which published the accusations of Moore’s alleged improprieties. His campaign released a statement dismissing the accusations against the former judge. "Gloria Allred is a sensationalist leading a witch hunt, and she is only around to create a spectacle. Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies."
We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Judge Moore is an innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone. This is a witch hunt against a man who has had an impeccable career for over 30 years and has always been known as a man of high character. Let it be understood: the truth will come forward, we will pursue all legal options against these false claims and Judge Moore will be vindicated.”
