Roy Moore holds defiant 90-second press conference. It did not go well.

Roy Moore, beleaguered Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama and alleged child sex abuser, held a bizarre press conference Monday evening as a tide of accusations of sexual assault against him continued to mount. Beverly Young Nelson fought back tears as she described how, 40 years ago, Moore would regularly stop by the restaurant where she worked, touching her hair and making comments on her looks. During one incident, Nelson got into Moore’s car after her boyfriend was late to pick her up from work. Moore then allegedly forced Nelson’s head into his crotch and tried to pull off her shirt. Moore’s signature complicates his suggestion that he never met Nelson.
