Roy Moore accuser loses everything in house fire under investigation for arson

Posted January 06, 2018

She alleges that at the age of 28 Moore groped her and made comments about her young daughters' physical appearance. Firefighters rushed to the rural one-level house after a utility worker called 911 shortly after 8 a.m., but by the time they were able to quench the flames, Johnson's family home was all but collapsed. "I want people to know that it's OK to finally say something", she told AL.com of her reasoning for going public with her story. We have just the clothes on our backs, ' she said.

The home of Tina Johnson, one of the women who accused former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual contact, has been burned down in a suspected arson. The department said in a statement that it does not suspect the fire is related to allegations made against Moore, though it gave no explanation why they believe that to be the case.

Investigators said they have a "suspect of interest", but have not released any more details to Johnson or the media.

Multiple neighbors witnessed a young man known for public intoxication walking around the house during the time of the fire.

Moore denied any wrongdoing, but he lost the race to Democrat Doug Jones.

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.

Despite being backed wholeheartedly by President Trump throughout his campaign and dismissing the allegations against him as false, Moore could not overcome them.

"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.
