In Alabama, residents have raised more than $150,000 to support Tina Johnson, whose home was burned to the ground only months after she came forward to publicly accuse Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of groping her without her consent back in 1991. The destruction of Johnson’s home on January 3 is being investigated as possible arson. Johnson says she suspects the fire is connected to her decision to come forward about her experiences with Roy Moore, who lost December’s highly controversial special Senate election after at least nine women, including Johnson, came forward to accuse him of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers, one as young as 14 years old.
