Roy Moore accuser’s home just went up in flames in suspected arson

The Alabama home of a Roy Moore accuser lost in a fire this week is now being investigated for arson.

Tina Johnson, one of several women who came forward with allegations of past sexual misconduct against the former Republican Senate candidate, lost her Gadsden, AL home to a fire on Tuesday, AL.com reported. Neighbors and utility workers called 911 on Tuesday morning, but Johnson said her family lost “everything they owned.”

“That fire is still under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force,” Natalie Barton, public information officer with the Etowah County Sheriff’s Department, told AL.com. “A suspect of interest is being spoken to. But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time.”

There were no injuries reported, as Johnson and her husband were at work and her grandson was at school.

Neighbors did say they witnessed a man with a history of public intoxication walking around the house before and during the blaze. Johnson said a female neighbor had told her that the young man in question had approached her that morning and asked if she thought Johnson’s house was going to burn.

Johnson said she has not yet been given a reason or cause for the fire. She and her family are currently staying in a motel, AL.com reported.

In November, Johnson was the sixth woman to come forward with allegations of past sexual harassment and misconduct against the controversial former judge, who was running against Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama’s special Senate election.

Johnson said Moore groped her in his law office when she, aged 28 at the time, attended a meeting with her mother as a client in 1991.

Moore was defeated by Jones in the December special election in a stunning upset.
