Roy Moore Accuser Tina Johnson's House Burns in Suspected Arson

One of Roy Moore's accusers has lost her home in a suspected arson attack.

She was in the public eye most recently in November, when she came forward to accuse Moore of groping her while at his law office in 1991. 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.

Natalie Barton, a spokeswoman for the Etowah County Sheriff's office, told the Daily News that the local arson task force is investigating the blaze and that authorities are speaking to a person of interest. "I guess I'm ashamed I didn't say nothing, didn't turn around and slap him".

'I am devastated, just devastated.

Johnson and some of her neighbors told AL.com that a young man with a history of public intoxication was seen walking around the house before and during the blaze. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

Her mother had accompanied her to the meeting but it did not stop Moore from "grabbing" her buttocks as she left, she claimed.

Five other women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct or of dating them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers.

"I got up there", Tallant said, "and [the fire] was already pretty well started".

Despite being backed wholeheartedly by President Trump throughout his campaign and dismissing the allegations against him as false, Moore could not overcome them. The Republican Moore, a former chief justice of Alabama's Supreme Court, lost narrowly to Democratic candidate Doug Jones.
