Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been saddled with another accuser. Debbie Wesson Gibson told the Washington Post this week that she and Moore had a romantic relationship nearly 40 years ago when she was 17 and he was 34.
Gibson provided a yearbook signed by Moore as proof.
“Happy graduation Debbie,” the inscription reads. “I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you’ll be a success in anything you do. Roy.”
Moore vehemently denies every single allegation. The most damning, that he sexually molested a 14-year-old girl, nearly toppled his career.
Gibson didn’t claim that Moore hurt her, in fact, she said that at the time the relationship occurred she felt proud. Her feelings changed when she heard the account of the then 14-year-old.
“I just couldn’t imagine him doing something like that,” Gibson said. “And then when I saw the interview from Beverly, and I saw his handwriting in her yearbook, my heart just sank. And when I saw what I knew to be Roy Moore’s handwriting, I just began to sob openly.”
Moore is set to face off against Democrat Doug Jones next week in a hotly contested special election. Alabama voters are torn. Their values are aligned with Moore, but they’re worried about the accusations against him.
President Trump supports Moore, which gives him credibility. He’s been a judge with an unblemished record for decades. Alabama knows Roy Moore, and its people aren’t willing to throw him over without more proof.
