Fire at Moore accuser's Alabama home not linked to allegations: sheriff

Tina Johnson, who accused Senate candidate Roy Moore a year ago of grabbing her in his office in the early 1990s, lost her home in a fire this week.

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

The fire is now being investigated as arson, according to local authorities.

"But, you know, right now I'm just so devastated", says Tina Johnson.

'He didn't pinch it; he grabbed it, ' she said at the time.

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. On Nov. 9, The Washington Post published an extensive report detailing allegations that Moore pursued relationships with teenage girls, including a 14-year-old when he was 32.

Finally, Republicans say they have an affidavit from an FBI agent which contradicts a claim made by former FBI Director Comey. The former NY senator blamed then-FBI Director James Comey reopening the case right before the election on her shocking loss.

AL.com reports that the Etowah County Arson Task Force is investigating the fire, and according to witnesses, "a young man who had a history of public intoxication [was seen] walking around the house before and during the blaze".

"A suspect of interest is being spoken to", Barton said. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

But the local sheriff said he doesn't believe the blaze that destroyed Tina Johnson's house was connected to the bitter campaign.

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