GOP Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore Holds Campaign Rally

Moore accuser Tina Johnson of Gadsden lost her home Wednesday in a fire that's under investigation by arson specialists in Etowah County.

The allegations by Johnson and the other women helped sink the far-right Republican's campaign for a seat that was won by Doug Jones, the first Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate in a quarter century.

Natalie Barton, a public information officer with the Etowah County Sheriff's Department, told AL.com about the ongoing investigation into possible arson or foul play.

"I am devastated, just devastated", said Johnson on Friday morning.

Investigators are speaking to a person of interest, but warrants have not been obtained in this case.

"He's been trouble in the neighborhood for a while", said Tallant, who lives across the street from Johnson and her family.


Johnson accused Moore of grabbing her buttocks in 1991 as she left his law office with her mother, who had hired Moore to handle a child custody dispute between Johnson and her then-husband.

"We have just the clothes on our backs", she told the website.

Johnson's home on Lake Mary Louise Road in Gadsden, Alabama, burned down Tuesday in a fire now under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force, AL.com first reported.

Officials said nothing leads them to believe the fire is connected to Moore and the sexual abuse allegations, NBC News reported. "But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time".

"By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable", said Corfman, whose lawsuit asks Moore to publicly apologize.
