Transcript for 5th woman accuses Roy Moore of sexual misconduct
Now to those calls growing for Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race as a fifth woman comes forward accusing him of sexual misconduct saying he assaulted her when she was a teenager. Our chief national correspondent Tom llamas is on capitol hill with that story and Moore's response. Good morning, Tom. Reporter: Robin, good morning to you. The allegations against Roy Moore are growing. With more reports that he was allegedly very well known at the local mall for pursuing teenage girls when he was in his 30s and a new woman came forward and claimed he asougsaulted when she was 16. Her story is graphic but it's one she says she's willing to tell under oath. Mr. Particular attacked me when I was a child. I did nothing to deserve this sexual attack. Reporter: Beverly young Nelson says in 1977 she was a 16-year-old high school student working part time at a restaurant where senate candidate Roy Moore then a local prosecutor was a regular customer. One cold night he offered her a ride home. I trusted Mr. Moore because he was the district attorney. I thought that he was simply doing something nice by offering to drive me home. Reporter: Instead, Nelson says Moore drove her to a dumpster behind the restaurant. Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me. Him putting his hands on my breasts. I tried to open my car door to leave but he reached over and he locked it so I could not get out. I tried fighting him off while yelling at him to stop. But instead of stopping he began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head on to his crotch. Reporter: Overnight Moore denying the accusations. And I can tell you without hesitation this is absolutely false. I never did what she said I did. I don't even know the woman. I don't know anything about her. I don't even know where the restaurant is or was. Reporter: But Nelson says she has proof of Moore's flirty behavior. Her yearbook. She says Moore wrote, to a sweeter more beautiful girl I could say merry Christmas and signed it love rye moooy Moore, D.A. When he was at the restaurant he would speak to me and sometimes pull the ends of my long hair. Reporter: Back in Washington a number of Republicans have heard enough. Senator John Cornyn of Texas watched the latest. Your thoughts? Very disturbing. Very disturbing. That's why I believe that it was appropriate for me to withdraw my endorsement. Reporter: 11 Republican senators are calling for Moore to drop out of the race. Four Republican senators have rescinded their endorsements and 28 have said he should step aside if the allegations are true. I believe the women. I think he should step aside. If you win you lose because you're coming into a body where people are already calling for your expulsion. Reporter: This morning new reports in both "The new Yorker" magazine and alabama.com quoting rest depses in Moore's hometown it was a well-known secret he would go to the mall to pursue teenage girls. One of those residents is quoted and named. I want to put that on the screen. That resident saying he would go and flight with all the young girls. It seems like every Friday or Saturday night you'd see him walking around the maul like the kids did. Now, for his part Roy Moore has denied all those allegations of sexual misconduct. The allegations are piling up. Tom, thanks very much.
