In the past several days I've heard two very working-class Roy Moore voters
on TV saying they disbelieved Moore's accusers because the accusations were
"hearsay."

In the paradigm ex., one said that you could "tell it was hearsay" just by
looking at them.

'An accusation of wrongdoing unsupported by evidence.'
