Roy Moore's wife, Kayla, stood by her husband's side Monday night as both addressed the public following another allegation brought forth by a woman who accused the U.S. Senate candidate of groping her.

Roy Moore, who was already embattled with allegations brought forth by multiple women Thursday in the Washington Post, once again denied allegations about inappropriate sexual conduct. The latest accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, says Moore groped her while she was working in a restaurant as a 16-year-old.

"This is absolutely false," Moore said, "I don't even know the woman (Nelson). I don't know anything about her."

During Nelson's news conference, which was held alongside high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, she held a up a yearbook showing what appeared to be signed by Moore.

After Moore's denial, his wife made comments supporting her husband and calling the allegations false as well.

"He has never one time lifted a finger to me. He is the most gentle, most kind man that I have ever known in my life. He's godly. He's loving, and everybody in this community knows it," Kayla Moore said, "These things are false, and it's ugly. This is the ugliest politics that I've ever been in in my life."

Following their comments, they left the news conference without answering any media questions. The couple was joined by family, friends and church members during the announcement.
