Moore campaign remains defiant amid sexual misconduct allegations

Attorney Phillip Jauregui defended Moore at a press conference Wednesday.

In a press conference outside the Alabama Republican Party headquarters in Birmingham this afternoon, Moore's attorney Phillip Jauregui and Moore's campaign chairman Bill Armistead stood by the candidate and challenged the story of one of Moore's accusers, Beverly Young Nelson.

"In the cases where it's true, it's horrible for the person making the accusations," Jauregui said, "When the allegations are made and it's not true, it's also horrible for who the allegations are directed against."

Jauregui also said that in 1999, when Moore was a circuit court judge in Alabama, his signature appears on documents relating to Nelson's divorce from her husband at the time, Ervine Lee Harris. Moore's signature does appear on documents obtained by ABC News related to Nelson's divorce proceedings from 1999.

In the press conference in which she detailed the alleged misconduct by Moore, Nelson did not say Moore signed an order relating to her divorce.

Neither Jauregui nor Armistead took questions from the media during the press conference.

In a statement released Wednesday in response, Allred said she would release the original yearbook on the condition that the Senate Judiciary Committee or the Senate Select Committee on Ethics hold hearings regarding the allegations against Moore and again said Nelson is willing to testify under oath regarding Moore's misconduct.

"The time has come for Roy Moore to announce whether he is willing to be examined under oath concerning his conduct with regard to the five accusers before the Senate committees," she said.

Allred also urged the committees to "subpoena Roy Moore to testify under oath about his denials of the accusations made against him."
