Retired Gadsden, Alabama, police officer Faye Gary claimed that she and other officers were warned in the 1980s to keep Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore away from teenage cheerleaders at high school football games.
Gary told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that Moore had a reputation for pursuing underage girls throughout the community:
We were also told to watch him at the ballgames, and make sure that he didn’t, you know, hang around with the cheerleaders.
Gary said that Moore had been banned from a shopping mall because he was “harassing” young women who worked there.
Moore has been accused by nine women of sexual misconduct, including attempted rape, in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Moore has denied the allegations.
