Catch me up:
Alabama is holding a special election for U.S. Senate to replace the seat recently vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Roy Moore is the Republican candidate, and his campaign has been filled with controversy after an explosive Washington Post report about his alleged predilection for teenage girls.
What’s the latest?
One of Moore’s accusers, who came forward separately from the women who spoke to the Post, cast doubt on her own testimony over the weekend by releasing relevant information after the fact.
Beverly Young Nelson, who has accused Moore of assaulting her in a dark parking lot when she was 16, shared an old high school yearbook with a note and signature allegedly from Moore as evidence. The Senate candidate has slammed her account as “absolutely false” and said he didn’t even know her.
Nelson said that she added a notation underneath the signature with the date and location of when Moore signed it.
Why didn’t Nelson’s lawyer advise her properly on the yearbook? Glenn slammed attorney Gloria Allred for misleading her client. The new information doesn’t mean Nelson is lying, but it undermines her story.
“If you want credibility, you have to be outwardly honest,” Glenn said. “If you want credibility, never go to Gloria Allred.”

GLENN: There’s one great thing about the Alabama special election that most people aren’t talking about.
But first, over the weekend, the media was frantic about Roy Moore’s absence on the campaign trail.
Instead of making one last push to win over voters, Moore was found at the Army-Navy football game watching his son play.
How dare he prioritize football and family over the circus?
One of Moore’s accusers, Beverly Nelson, lawyered up with Gloria Allred and presented a key piece of evidence against Moore: a signed yearbook. Late last week, she admitted that she wrote half of the inscription in the yearbook.
Does that confirm she lied about the whole incident? Not exactly-but, it’s difficult to take her seriously after this. If you want credibility you have to be outwardly honest, not just wait until you get caught. Also, if you want credibility – never go to Gloria Allred.
The people of Alabama will reveal how they really feel about Roy Moore tomorrow.
But, again, there’s one great thing about the Alabama special election that most people aren’t talking about – and it’s incredibly important.
Mercifully, tomorrow it will finally be over.
