Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has been gracing news stories for several weeks after allegations of romantically pursuing teenagers years ago. But it has come to light that the first time he noticed his now-wife, Kayla Moore, she too was only 15 years old.
"When I was deputy district attorney, many years before we got married, I saw her at a dance recital and I was standing, oh, at the back of the auditorium and I saw her up front," he recalled at the time. "I remember her name, it was Kayla Kisor. KK. But I remember that and I didn't meet her there ... it was, oh gosh, eight years later or something, I met her. And when she told me her name, I remembered."
Moore also wrote about the moment he first saw her, even though they did not actually meet, in his 2015 book, "So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom":
"I knew Kayla was going to be a special person in my life," Moore wrote about when he first saw her when she was 15 years old. He wrote he began dating her when she was 23, a year before they married, according to the memoir.
