Report: Woman discloses new evidence of relationship with Roy Moore

Several GOP lawmakers say if the sexual misconduct accusations against the Alabama senate hopeful reported in 'The Washington Post' are true, Roy Moore must drop out of the race. USA TODAY

A woman who said she dated Roy Moore when she was 17 and he was 34 says she has found a scrapbook with new evidence of their relationship, according to a report published Monday by the Washington Post.

Debbie Wesson Gibson, who told the Post previously she dated the Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate for a few months when she was 17, said she found the scrapbook in her attic last week while taking out boxes of Christmas decorations. 

The scrapbook, according to Gibson, contains numerous mentions of Moore, including a graduation card from him and notations indicating he attended her commencement ceremony.

The scrapbook also contains a note Gibson said she wrote about her first date with Moore.

“Wednesday night, 3-4-81. Roy S. Moore and I went out for the first time. We went out to eat at Catfish Cabin in Albertville. I had a great time," the note read. 

Roy Moore has repeatedly denied the accounts of multiple women who say he dated them while they were teenagers.

Gibson said because she received threats after the initial Post story was published, she was unsure whether to come forward with the new evidence. She made her decision after hearing Moore categorically deny knowing any of his accusers, including herself. 

“The allegations are completely false. They are malicious. Specifically, I do not know any of these women,” Moore said at a recent campaign event.

“Roy Moore made an egregious mistake to attack that one thing — my integrity,” Gibson said to The Post. 

Some of the women have also claimed Moore made sexual advances on them. 

The Post said Moore's campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
