Teresa Jones says it was ‘common knowledge’ that Roy Moore had a propensity for teenage girls. But that no one said anything to him about it because of the power he exerted in the community.
A woman who worked at the Etowah County District Attorney’s Office with Roy Moore says it was “common knowledge” he pursued teenage girls.
A tweet posted by Teresa Jones on Friday slams the U.S. Senate candidate by stating information she says she knows from her time working with Moore as a Deputy District Attorney in Gadsden.
“As a Deputy DA in Gadsden when Roy Moore was there, it was common knowledge about Roy’s propensity for teenage girls. I’m appalled that these women are being skewered for the truth,” she wrote.
Jones told CNN on Saturday Moore often went to high school events and to other local hangouts. “It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird…We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall…”
She also told the network that co-workers thought the situation was odd, but no one confronted him about it. “You really wouldn’t say anything to someone like that,” she said.
