Bombshell: Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson Admits She Forged Yearbook
OOPS! IMAGINE THAT! NO WONDER “PUBLICITY WHORE” ALLRED WOULDN’T ALLOW ANYBODY TO EXAMINE THE BOOK
Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription.

Judge recuses in Michael Flynn case
The former Trump national security adviser will be sentenced by Clinton appointee Emmet Sullivan.
Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself.
A court spokeswoman confirmed to POLITICO that the reassignment was due to Contreras’ recusal, but said the court generally does not disclose the reason that a judge begged off the case.
MY THEORY IS THAT CONTRERAS KNEW MUELLER WITHHELD EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE BEFORE HE PRESSURED KELLY INTO A PLEA DEAL. HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO DISCLOSE THAT OR FACE DISBARMENT.
THE MAINE PAIN DOES IT AGAIN.
