The home of Tina Johnson, one of the women who accused former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual contact, has been burned down in a suspected arson.

As AL.com reported, the Tuesday morning fire that burned almost all of Johnson’s home in Gadsden, Alabama is under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force.

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.

“I am devastated, just devastated,” Johnson said. “We have just the clothes on our backs.”

Johnson and her neighbors suspect “a young man who had a history of public intoxication” because he was seen walking around the house before the fire. He asked one of the neighbors if she “thought Johnson’s house was going to burn,” but the neighbor in question didn’t understand because flames were not yet visible.

Investigators said they have a “suspect of interest,” but have not released any more details to Johnson or the media.

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

You can view photos of the damage to her home below.

But his racist, white nationalist, white supremacist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, biphobic remarks and disturbing ties to far right radical European politicians – including one he endorsed who has ties to a neo-Nazi, finally caught up with him.

When the president’s son-in-law truly was a great success

Published

For many Americans, the idea of the president tasking his son-in-law with solving national, even international, crises, seems problematic, if not absurd. But it happened once before and turned out to be the kind of “great success story” our current first family wants us to believe in again. Slightly over a century ago, as the US mobilized for the First World War, the nation faced devastating breakdowns of its financial and transport systems. In response, President Woodrow Wilson leaned heavily on his talented and experienced Treasury Secretary, William McAdoo, who just happened to be his son-in-law. Looking back at this episode tells us a lot about what makes for successful emergency management at the highest levels of government.
