Truth About Yearbook Points Red Fingers Back to WaPo “Expert” Report

Oh dear, Judge Roy Moore’s accusers are falling apart quicker than a woman watching The Notebook!

Now that we know Moore’s main accuser admitted to forging notes on the yearbook message allegedly written by him, her entire argument is invalid. Why would we believe a word that comes out of her mouth?

Here’s what makes it even more interesting: The Washington Post expert Philip Bump worked with FBI forensic document examiner Mark Songer to determine the legitimacy of the signature. Their conclusion: the “writing seems consistent with one writer.”

“Looking at the yearbook entry,” Songer continued, “it looks pretty spontaneously prepared. It looks very fluid. I don’t see any indications of unnatural writing.”

“The writing seems consistent with one writer,” he added.

Really now? So by that logic, if their expert is sticking by the fact that it was all written by one person, that means the entire piece is forged. OR, that means that the expert really isn’t an expert at all.

Breitbart reports: 

The context of when Bump published this piece is important. If you recall, the Washington Post was the news outlet that first broke the story of the Moore allegations, and it was during this time that outside fact-checking of the Post‘s reporting revealed serious lapses, all them pointing to a Moore accuser who manufactured a false narrative.

But in a Friday morning interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Beverly Young Nelson admitted that she had forged a portion of what she still claims (with no credibility) is truly Moore’s signature.

On Friday, Nelson admitted her dishonesty when speaking with ABC News reporter Tom Llamas. He asked, “Beverly, he signed your yearbook?”

Nelson replied, “He did sign it,” and Llamas inquired, “And you made some notes underneath?”

“Yes,” Nelson answered.

The “notes underneath” she references are the following:

12-22-77

Olde Hickory House

Now, this is why this is so important:

1) This forged portion was used to back up Nelson’s now discredited claim that Moore assaulted her as a 16-year-old.

2) This forged portion — and you are not going to believe this — is the specific part of the inscription the Washington Post’s handwriting expert examined.
