Judge Roy Moore took over $1M from "charity" he founded

The WaPo:


Former Alabama judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, once said publicly that he did not take a “regular salary” from the small charity he founded to promote Christian values because he did not want to be a financial burden.

But privately, Moore had arranged to receive a salary of $180,000 a year for part-time work at the Foundation for Moral Law, internal charity documents show. He collected more than $1 million as president from 2007 to 2012, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings most of those years.

His wife took over as President when he quit (and she raked in another $195K); his daughter and son were also employed by the "charity". In fact, over the last two years, about a third of all contributions to "The Foundation for Moral Law" went into Moore's pocket.

BTW, he stayed on the payroll while he was running for political office (unsuccessfully), and his family remained on the payroll while he was on the AL Supreme Court. Many of the shenanigans were concealed from the IRS, and Moore relied on charity staff in his political campaigns.

In short, Elmer Gantry had nothing on this scoundrel.

Surprised that 45 didn't admire his creativeness and back him.

This makes him a shoo-in for election in Alabama. They only care who you sleep with, not who you screw.

With his legal mind, he might be our next AG when that other fine Alabamian is finally fired.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
