Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted a 16-year-old when he was an adult - locking her inside his auto and forcing her head onto his crotch, the now-grown woman claimed Monday. She said he squeezed her neck while trying to push her head toward his crotch and that he tried to pull her shirt off.
The Post story quoted four women by name, including the woman who alleged the sexual contact at 14, and had two dozen other sources.
Nelson contacted attorney Gloria Allred - known by San Diegans to have represented an accuser of former mayor Bob Filner - to represent her.

"We have to find a way to restore trust and confidence in our elected officials in our government, and this goes in the wrong direction".
