Skip to comments.Gadsden locals say Moore's predatory behavior at mall, restaurants not a secret

Roy Moore's penchant for flirting with teen girls was "common knowledge" and "not a big secret" around Gadsden, according to some area residents.
The Senate candidate has denied any wrongdoing in the wake of a report from The Washington Post in which four women accused Moore of inappropriate advances - and in one instance, a sexual encounter - toward them when they were teens and he was in his early 30s.
One of the four women claims she was 14 at the time, making her the only one whose claim would represent a legal violation. Moore has said he never met her. A fifth woman came forward this afternoon.
Moore and other Republican leaders have questioned why it took so long for his accusers, now in their 50s, to come forward publicly.
And yet people who lived in Etowah County during that time have said Moore's flirting with and dating much younger women and girls was no secret.
"These stories have been going around this town for 30 years," said Blake Usry, who grew up in the area and lives in Gadsden. "Nobody could believe they hadn't come out yet."
Usry, a traveling nurse, said he knew several of the girls that Moore tried to flirt with.
"It's not a big secret in this town about Roy Moore," he said. "That's why it's sort of frustrating to watch" the public disbelieve the women who have come forward, he said.

It is from AL.com which is the online version of the Mobile, Birmingham, Huntsville, and Montgomery newspapers. Alabama is conservative but AL.com is extremist liberal. I refuse to pay for any of their newspapers.
As I've said before, I am hoping for truth. Hopefully this will all be cleared up soon.
Last I heard flirting wasn’t a criminal offense.
The woman with Gloria Allred said today that Roy Moore ate at the restaurant every day. Moore said he was not familiar with the restaurant. Both cannot be true. I find it hard to believe someone ate at the same restaurant every day.
Drudge is part of the swamp these days.
Nobody is talking about the ultra-left wing opponent we’d be handing a Senate vote to in the event Moore lost.
The NYT suggested today that even if Moore wins the U.S. Senate could thwart the will of the voters there and refuse to seat him. Even suggested Sessions might step down as AG and go back to his Senate seat.
This is all about stopping Bannon. The GOPe lost 30 million bucks oposing Moore in the primary.
Last I heard flirting wasnt a criminal offense.
This is true.
Yeah. I was wondering at what point ‘flirting’ became ‘predatory’.
At least he’s flirting with girls.
Flirting is predatory? Then I guess winking is a criminal offense.
it seems the NYC effetes can only find NYC effetes.
the GOPe is pushing women are still stupid enough to vote how we tell them.
Why are we only hearing about it now?
More and more smoke....getting pretty tough to deny the truth. But then he’s our guy so it’s ok he’s a perv I guess.
It’s crap like this that make people distrust conservatives...sad
Then the first line calls it 'flirting.'
The people are disgusting.
No doubts that it is very unusual they didn’t come out years earlier. The burden of proof should certainly be on the woman if they wait 40 years.
Nobody has answered that question. I guess it just wasn’t very important, in the past...
It can’t be cleared up. That’s why its “news”.
Any guy who didn’t look at the young tail in the malls back then, well...
The headline says ‘predatory.’
Then the first line calls it ‘flirting.’
The people are disgusting.
It’s AL.com ... .... pro-gay marriage, gay agenda, abortion, black lives matter, etc., bs.
“The GOPe lost 30 million bucks oposing Moore in the primary.”
The filthy underbelly of the GOPe has been flipped over for all of us to see. For just this kind of “exposure,” we owe President Trump an eternal debt of gratitude. When I think how I’ve personally swallowed their bull$hit for all my adult life, I am ashamed.
I was thinking the same thing. Of course, we’ll probably get attacked now lol
