Roy Moore Was Once Banned From Mall Over Behavior Around Teen Girls: Report

It was reportedly "common knowledge" that the embattled Senate candidate liked to flirt with teen girls in the 80s.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was reportedly banned from a mall when he was in his 30s amid his alleged encounters with teenagers at the time.

Some say it was "common knowledge" and "not a big secret" that Moore would flirt with teenage girls at the Gadsden Mall food court. 

Moore was actually banned from the mall, according to a story in The New Yorker magazine, which quotes a mall security guard warning a local teen back in the 1970's: "If you see Roy, let me know.  He's banned from the mall. If you see Moore here, tell me. I'll take care of him." 

Moore's wife, Kayla, is standing by him after five women came forward to accuse him of predatory behavior when they were teens.  

“This is the most gentle, kind man I’ve ever known in my life,” she said in a statement. 

Moore's latest accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, made the bombshell accusation Monday that he  sexually assaulted her when she was just 16 years old.  

“This is absolutely false," Moore said in response. "I never did what she said I did. I don't even know this woman. I don't know anything about her.” 

But his accuser showed what she says Moore wrote in her yearbook 40 years ago:  “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say ‘Merry Christmas.’ Christmas 1977.  Love, Roy Moore D.A.”
