The latest woman to accuse Roy Moore of engaging in inappropriate behavior with her when she was just a teen has identified herself as a Trump supporter.

During a press conference in New York on Nov. 13, Beverly Young Nelson described the disturbing details behind her alleged encounter with Moore, Daily Mail reported. She also revealed that both her and her husband supported President Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

Nelson said the incident occurred when she was 15 years old. She said Moore, who was 31 at the time, offered her a ride home one cold winter night after work. Nelson said Moore parked the car near a dumpster, prompting her to ask what he was doing.

"Instead of answering my question, Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts," Nelson recalled. "I tried to open my car door to leave, but he reached over and 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 onto his crotch."

"I continued to struggle. I was determined that I was not allow him to force me to have sex with him. I was terrified," Nelson continued. "He was also trying to pull my shirt off. I thought that he was going to rape me. I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop. I had tears running down my face."

Nelson said Moore then told her to not tell anyone about what had just taken place.

"He said: 'You're just a child.' And he said: 'I am the district attorney of Etowah County. And if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you.'"

Moore has since denied Nelson's allegations.

"I can tell you without hesitation this is absolutely false," Moore said in a news conference in Alabama. "I never did what she said I did. I don't even know the woman." However, Nelson alleged that Moore signed her yearbook.

Nelson's attorney, Gloria Allred, has also refuted claims that her decision to represent Nelson may be politically motivated.

"I would point out that I did not contact Beverly. She contacted me," Allred said before Nelson shared her story. "Further, I have a public record of attacking Democrats who are or have been elected officials when they have been accused of injustices against women."

Moore took to Twitter on Nov. 13 to call for the removal of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"The person who should step aside is [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell," Moore tweeted. "He has failed conservatives and must be replaced. #DrainTheSwamp."
