Two More Women Describe Unwanted Overtures by Roy Moore at Alabama Mall

posted on November 16, 2017

The Washington Post’s Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard, and Alice Crites report that two more women have accused Alabama Republican Senator Roy Moore of forceful sexual advances. One alleged victim, Gena Richardson, now 58, recounts that Moore forcefully kissed her after asking her out on a date around her eighteenth birthday. Several individuals corroborate Richardson and recall that Moore frequently visited Gadsden Mall in Alabama, where he often talked to young women. Phyllis Smith, who worked at the mall, said, “I can remember him walking in and the whole mood would change with us girls. It would be like we were on guard.”
