    A woman who falsely told reporters from The Washington Post that embattled Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore impregnated her when she was a teenager and then suggested she get an abortion was apparently part of a hoax by a conservative group, according to the Post.

    The newspaper never published her dramatic claims about a sexual relationship with Moore when she was 15 years old, after becoming suspicious about whether she was telling the truth.

    She apparently denied working with any group, but Post reporters caught her on Monday morning going into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization founded by James O’Keefe, and known for using false information and video recordings to target the media and liberal groups.

    O’Keefe didn’t respond to Post reporter’s questions about the woman.

    O’Keefe was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 after using a fake identity at a federal building. He also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of breaking into a Louisiana senator’s office in 2010.

    The Washington Post broke the news about multiple women accusing Moore of trying to date them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. He has denied the allegations and refused to end his campaign. Moore is running for the seat vacated by Attporney General Jeff Sessions.
