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

In November, Johnson gave a detailed description of how Moore allegedly molested her in his office in Gagsden in the 1990s when she went to him for his legal expertise during a custody battle over her son.

"I am devastated, just devastated", Johnson told AL.com on Friday morning. 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.

The Etowah County Arson Task Force confirmed it is investigating the blaze in Gadsen and speaking to a person of interest. By the time the fire had been put out, the home and all of Johnson's belongings had been lost. We have just the clothes on our backs, ' she said. According to Johnson, one neighbor told her that the man in question approached the neighbor and asked if she thought Johnson's house was going to burn.


He lost the special election to Democrat Doug Jones on December 12, turning Alabama blue from red for the first time in 25 years.

Defeated US Senate candidate Roy Moore's wife has identified the "Jewish" attorney she referred to at a campaign rally. Most of the allegations against Moore related to behavior with teenage girls in the late-1970s. Leigh Corfman, who claimed Moore molested her when she was 14, alleged Moore and his campaign defamed her and made false statements as they denied her accusations.

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