The campaign of Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is suggesting the truthfulness of one of his sexual assault accusers has been undercut by changes she's made to her story.

Beverly Young Nelson had accused Moore of sexually assaulting her decades ago when she was 16 and revealed a high school yearbook message to prove the two knew each other at the time.

But on Friday, she admitted she made her own notes below Moore's signature.

"We hoped that when you have allegations that are 40 years old that somehow, something can come out to prove that it's not true. Guess what? It has," Moore's lawyer Phillip Jauregui said Friday, The Hill reported.

He noted Nelson's lawyer, Gloria Allred, gave no indication that anyone but Moore was responsible for the content of the yearbook message when Nelson's story was first revealed.

CBS News reported the message in question reads: "To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House."

While still insisting that Moore signed her yearbook, Nelson now says that she added her own notes.

"He signed your yearbook?" ABC News' Tom Llamas asked Nelson in an interview on "Good Morning America."

"He did sign it,” Nelson responded.

"And you made some notes underneath?" Llamas asked. "Yes," Nelson said, with Allred sitting next to her.

Allred later clarified that she added the time and place where Moore made the signature as a reminder, but was not explicit about when that addition took place, The Hill reported.

"What they said then was either a lie, or what they said today was a lie. And the voters will have to decide were they lying then or lying now," Jauregui said during the campaign press conference.

Nelson's admission about adding notes to the signature prompted Jauregui and the Moore campaign to reissue their call to turn over the yearbook for independent analysis.
