Alabama Home of Roy Moore Accuser Burns; Arson Suspected

Home of woman who accused Roy Moore of misconduct destroyed by fire authorities investigate arson

Authorities in Alabama said Friday they had launched an arson investigation after the home of a woman who accused Roy Moore of groping her almost two decades ago burned to the ground Wednesday.

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

"I am devastated, just devastated", she was quoted as saying.

"That fire is still under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force", said Natalie Barton, public information officer with the Etowah County Sheriff's Department. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

Officials said nothing leads them to believe the fire is connected to Moore and the sexual abuse allegations, NBC News reported.

Johnson and her family are living in a motel while their friends and neighbors help them recover from the blaze.

Almost 2.2 million voters were choosing between the 51-year-old Weah and 73-year-old Vice President Joseph Boakai. However, the Electoral Commission of Liberia are yet to declare the official results of the presidential votes.

Tina Johnson, who claims Moore groped her rear at his office over two decades ago, was at work when her Gadsen home went up in flames on Tuesday morning, cops said.

Though all their belongings were destroyed in the fire, Johnson, her husband and their grandson that lives with them were all out of the house when the fire was set.

Johnson and her family reportedly lost everything in the fire. "But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time".

At the start of the meeting, Moore remarked on how "pretty" she was and made her feel uncomfortable, she said.

Republican candidate Roy Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama - a shock loss, despite the controversy surrounding Moore.
