Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore may have lost his election, but that doesn't mean Beverly Young Nelson, one of the women accusing him of sexually assaulting them when they were teenagers, said Wednesday that won't stop her from pursuing a legal case against him.

"I'm very excited," Nelson told CNN "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota. "Roy Moore's loss means to me the fact that Alabama is about to make some changes, and I believe it's going to be on the positive side of things."

During the election, Nelson claimed Moore assaulted her sexually when she was 16 and he was in his 30s, saying the alleged attack occurred while they were parked in his car outside a restaurant where she was working.

However, Nelson's credibility came under question after she admitted penning in a date and the name of the restaurant where she was working under a signature she said Moore left in her high school yearbook.

Nelson told Cuomo, though, that she's always been truthful on the issue and she's "demanding" that Moore's activities be investigated.

"There's no need for me to go on and lie on television when this was the truth from day one," said Nelson.

Moore attacked Nelson after she revealed that she'd added words to the signature, claiming she forge the whole thing. His attorneys also demanded that Nelson's attorney, Gloria Allred, hand over the yearbook so a neutral party could examine the signature.

On Wednesday, Nelson said she was "really upset" when people called her character into question over the yearbook signature.

"Why would I write that myself in my own yearbook?" she told Cuomo. "My name was stamped on the front of it. He knew it was my yearbook. He asked if he could sign it, I told him gladly he could sign that book."

Allred, also on the program, told Cuomo that Nelson deserves to have her reputation restored, and that the yearbook was examined by a former FBI agent who determined the signature was authentic.

"To accuse her of forgery, that’s a crime," said Allred. "That is defamation and Beverly is one of the more honest people you will ever meet in your life. And she deserves her reputation back."

Allred also is representing ex-Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos in a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, after he called her and other accusers liars.

"He said he would sue them after the election," said Allred. "He didn’t. I called on him to retract. He didn't. So we filed a lawsuit that is now pending. We argued in New York Supreme Court last week. We are awaiting the court's decision because President Trump has sought to dismiss our case, arguing that he has legal immunity because he is president of the United States and other legal arguments, and we are opposing that and awaiting the court's decision."
