MARTHA RADDATZ (HOST): So, where do you think this story came from, this original Washington Post story? You have eight people talking about some sort of inappropriate behavior or flat out assault. Do you think these women all just made it up? The women in the Washington Post story didn't even know each other.

DEAN YOUNG: Well, that's a good question, and the people of Alabama want to know why, 30 days before an election, that people would just come out of the the woodwork and say, Judge Moore did this and Judge Moore did that. I'm not sure why they did it. I don't believe them. And the people of Alabama don't believe them. But I guess, you know, one of them was in Time magazine. One of them was on your show on Friday. In this world where everybody wants to be on TV, maybe that's the reason.
