A woman who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of assaulting her when she was a teenager admitted Friday that she added "notes" to his inscription in her yearbook, which she had used as proof of her allegations. Beverly Young Nelson confirmed to Good Morning America that she made "notes to the inscription, but the message was all Roy Moore."

The message, which Moore has denied is in his handwriting, reads: "To a sweeter, more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A."

Nelson and her attorney, Gloria Allred, are holding a news conference later Friday to "present evidence that we think is important on the issue whether Roy Moore signed the yearbook," Allred said.
