Roy Moore Is a ‘Liar’ And Here’s Proof, Says One of Alabama Senate Candidate’s Many Accusers
Marie Solis, Newsweek December 4, 2017
The paper trail continues.
One of Roy Moore’s accusers has uncovered a note the Alabama Senate candidate allegedly wrote to her when she was a senior in high school, the latest in possible written evidence of Moore’s alleged inappropriate relationships with minors.
“Happy graduation Debbie,” the message, written on a graduation card Debbie Wesson Gibson found in her senior year scrapbook, reads. “I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you’ll be a success in anything you do. Roy.”
Wesson told The Washington Post she found the scrapbook when she was sorting through her attic last week, but she said she didn’t immediately come forward for fear of receiving more threats, which began when she first went public with her account of dating Moore when she was 17 and he was 34. But Wesson changed her mind when she saw Moore hold a rally in an Alabama church, where he vehemently denied the allegations against him.
“He called me a liar,” Gibson told the Post. “Roy Moore made an egregious mistake to attack that one thing—my integrity.”
Gibson, however, says she knows who the real liar is: The man nine women have accused of sexual misconduct.
Gibson said she remembers Moore handing the graduation card to her in person. She then wrote in her scrapbook: “Roy Moore inspires me because he is such a successful man himself. Also he is about the only person I know of who seriously believes in me. I appreciate that. He’s got to be one of the nicest people I know.”
In the scrapbook, Gibson also marked down that Moore had attended her commencement ceremony, along with her mom and dad, given her $10 as a gift.
In another entry, Gibson recalled her first date with Moore on a page titled “best times,” and writes that they went to eat at Catfish Cabin in Albertville and had a “great time,” underlining “great” twice. She told the Post she’s able to remember the age when she dated Moore because that’s when her “braces were off.”
Last month, Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Moore of attempting to rape her, became the first to uncover a written message suggesting his misdeeds.
In a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, Nelson displayed the note, which she found in a high school yearbook. It read: “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas,” ending with the signature, “Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore… Roy Moore, DA.”
President Donald Trump threw his unequivocal support behind the Republican candidate Monday morning, tweeting that the Republican Party needs Moore to fight crime, illegal immigration and other right-wing causes. Later, he reportedly called Moore personally to give him a vote of confidence: “Go get ’em, Roy!”
