Roy Moore's Accuser Has Her Home Burn Down
The home of a woman who had accused Senate candidate Roy Moore of groping her burned down in what is being investigated as possible arson, local media reported Friday.
Tina Johnson, who said in November that Moore grabbed her rear end in his office in 1991, reported that her home in Gadsden, Alabama, had caught fire on Tuesday,according to AL.com . The local fire department was able to put out the blaze but not before Johnson’s home and belongings were destroyed.
“I am devastated, just devastated,” Johnson told AL.com Friday morning. “We have just the clothes on our backs.”
Johnson, her husband and her grandson, who all lived in the house, were not home when the fire broke out, prompting their neighbors to phone it in.
Authorities say the fire is now being looked into as a potential arson.
“That fire is still under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force,” said Natalie Barton, a spokeswoman for the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department. “A suspect of interest is being spoken to. But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time.”
