Two more women have come forward to say Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore made unwanted advances on them in the late 1970s while they worked in a mall.

The Washington Post spoke to several women whose stories seem to corroborate regarding Moore, the Republican candidate in the Dec. 12 special election, and his alleged interest in pursuing teenage girls 40 years ago when he was a lawyer in his early 30s.

One woman, Gena Richardson, said she was about to turn 18 or had just turned 18 when Moore began flirting with her while she worked in the men's department at Sears at the Gadsden Mall. After she turned down his offer to go out on a date, she was pulled out of her trigonometry class at Gadsden High School a few days later to answer a phone call — which happened to be from Moore.

"I said 'Hello?'" Richardson told the Post. "And the male on the other line said, 'Gena, this is Roy Moore.' I was like, 'What?!' He said, 'What are you doing?' I said, 'I'm in trig class.'"

Richardson said she ended the call by saying she would be at Sears the following weekend working, and Moore showed up. She agreed to meet him after her shift and they saw a movie. He allegedly drove her back to her car and forcefully kissed her, which caused her to quickly exit the car.

Richardson told her friend and Sears coworker Kayla McLaughlin about the alleged incident. After that, every time McLaughlin saw Moore walk into Sears, she would call Richardson in the men's department and tell her to hide.

"She would go to the back. She was uncomfortable," McLaughlin said.

Another woman who spoke to the Post, Becky Gray, said she worked at the Pizitz department store and was approached by Moore several times about going out on a date with him.

"I'd always say no, I'm dating someone, no, I'm in a relationship," said Gray, who is now 62. "I thought he was old at that time. Anyone over 22 was just old."

Gray said she informed her manager about Moore's numerous advances on her, and she was told that hers was not the first complaint about Moore's alleged behavior at the mall.

In a separate interview with AL.com, another woman alleged Moore groped her while she was 28 in 1991.

Moore has denied doing anything wrong and has vowed to stay in the race despite myriad Republicans publicly saying he needs to step aside.
