New accuser claims sex assault by Roy Moore in '70s

A new accuser is saying that as a teenager in the 1970s she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore in a locked car. The allegation is further rocking the Alabama Republican's race for an open Senate seat.

Beverly Young Nelson alleges the assault happened when Moore was a 30-something-year-old prosecutor in the Etowah County District Attorney's Office. Nelson said she met Moore while working as a waitress at the Old Hickory House, a restaurant off U.S. 431 in Gadsden. The city is about 50 miles northeast of Birmingham and has fewer than 40,000 residents.

During a brief appearance in his small hometown of Gallant in Etowah County late Monday, Moore denied the allegations.

"I never did what she said I did," Moore told reporters. "I don't even know the woman. I don't know anything about her."
