Women Debunks Moore Denial, Says 'I Knew He Was a Liar'

Tuesday, 05 December 2017, 08:04:40 AM. Debbie Wesson Gibson showed The Washington Post a scrapbook from her senior year of high school that contained a graduation card from Roy Moore, presenting more evidence of their relationship.

One of several women who say they dated Roy Moore when they were teens — incensed he has disavowed any knowledge of her — has presented more evidence of their relationship, The Washington Post reported.

Debbie Wesson Gibson showed the newspaper a scrapbook from her senior year of high school that contained a graduation card from Moore.

"Happy graduation Debbie," it read. "I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you'll be a success in anything you do. Roy."

A total of nine women have now come forward to say they dated Moore when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney in his 30s, the Post reported.

Gibson said she "wore like a badge of honor" her relationship with Moore until she began re-evaluating it in light of the accounts of other women — and his denial last week, a video of which Gibson said she has on her cellphone.

"At 34 minutes and 56 seconds into the video, he says, unequivocally, 'I did not know any of them,'" Gibson told the Post. "In that moment, it changed my perspective. I knew he was a liar."

Gibson, 54, of Delray Beach, Fla. — a registered Republican — says she not only openly dated Moore, but later joined him in passing out fliers during his campaign for circuit court judge in 1982 and exchanged Christmas cards with him over the years, the Post reported.

"Roy Moore made an egregious mistake to attack that one thing — my integrity," she told the Post.

"He called me a liar," she added.

She also told the Post that an interview by Beverly Young Nelson, who alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16, and who presented her own yearbook as proof of their relationship, also spurred her to come forward again despite misgivings.

"I just couldn't imagine him doing something like that," Gibson told the Post. "And then when I saw the interview from Beverly, and I saw his handwriting in her yearbook, my heart just sank. And when I saw what I knew to be Roy Moore's handwriting, I just began to sob openly."

Gibson's yearbook is filled with remembrances of Moore as a guest at her graduation, and of her first date with him. She said when she became engaged, Moore insisted on meeting her fiance to make sure he was "good enough for me," the Post reported.

"It takes what I thought was a very lovely part of my past, and it colors it, and it changes it irrevocably," she said. "It changes it permanently."
