Gloria Allred Holds Press Conference To Accuse Moore Of Rape, Child Abuse & Threats Of Retaliation

Gloria Allred, much like her Harvey Weinstein defending daughter Lisa Bloom, is not very good at selling a lie.

While the Washington Post ran a rather masterful piece of propaganda accusing Roy Moore of having inappropriate sexual relations with a 14-year-old, Allred held a press conference Monday with a new accuser that claims Moore threatened to rape her when she was 16, telling her, "You're just a child and I am the District Attorney of Etowah County, and if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you."

The Washington Post's story was believable because it appears Moore did have consensual relationships with legal, older teens when he was in his early 30's. Three out of four women in the piece were of legal age and none of them accused him of sexual assault. Only one claimed she was 14 and took her to his house in the woods and groped her, though she said he stopped when she said no and they continued to date afterwards. A story like that is almost believable because it's not over the top, though the fact it allegedly happened 39 years ago and the accuser has an admittedly questionably history has made many skeptical.

Unlike the Washington Post, Gloria Allred wouldn't know subtlety if it hit her in the face.

Here's some highlights from her press conference Monday afternoon from
2:14 p.m. Allred says Nelson isn't exploring civil or criminal options against Moore. Lawyer calls for Moore to be subpoenaed to testify at a Senate hearing.

[...]2 p.m. '"You're just a child and I am the District Attorney of Etowah County, and if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you,"' Nelson claims Moore said to her before either she fell or he pushed her out of the car. Nelson says she had bruises after but covered them with makeup to hide them. Nelson says she told her sister two weeks later. Nelson says she also told her mother about four years ago, and told her husband before they got married.

1:59 p.m. "I was not going to allow him to force me to have sex with him," Nelson said. "I was terrified. I thought he was going to rape me. At some point, he gave up."

1:58 p.m. Instead of driving to Nelson's home, Moore pulled to dark area behind the restaurant, Nelson claims. Nelson says Moore groped her and tried to force her head onto his crotch. Nelson says she yelled and tried to leave the car, but Moore locked the door.

1:54 p.m. One night when Nelson was 16, she was waiting for her boyfriend to pick her up from work, but Moore offered a ride. "I trusted Mr. Moore because he was a district attorney," Nelson said.

[...]1:48 p.m. Allred says political affiliations aren't a motive for the allegations. "I did not contact Beverly. She contacted me."

1:46 p.m. Allred calls for Senate Judiciary Committee to call a public hearing about the allegations. "Beverly is willing to appear at such a hearing to testify under oath," Allred says.
It's "not political" even though all of Allred's demands are political.

Makes sense.

Moore's campaign fired back with a statement of their own:
"Gloria Allred is a sensationalist leading a witch hunt, and she is only around to create a spectacle," said the statement, attributed to Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead. "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."
Moore's wife said Sunday the allegations are "just not true."

Nonetheless, Mitch McConnell said he believes these women entirely and Moore should step aside:

Moore countered saying McConnell should step aside as he's "failed conservatives."

Moore held a press conference of his own Monday night:
