Roy Moore, still the Republicans' Senate candidate in December's special election despite allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl, was reportedly banned from the Gadsden, Ala., mall for his unwelcome interactions with teenage girls there. This past weekend, I spoke or messaged with more than a dozen people—including a major political figure in the state—who told me that they had heard, over the years, that Moore had been banned from the mall because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees. (A request for comment from the Moore campaign was not answered.) Several of them asked that I leave their names out of this piece.
