Undisclosed deal guaranteed Roy Moore $180,000 a year for part-time work at charity

By Shawn Boburg and Robert O'Harrow Jr. October 11 at 11:55 AM

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.

When the charity couldn’t afford the full amount, Moore in 2012 was given a promissory note for back pay eventually worth $540,000 or an equal stake of the charity’s most valuable asset, a historic building in Montgomery, Ala., mortgage records show. He holds that note even now, a charity official said.

A Washington Post review of public and internal charity documents found that errors and gaps in the group’s federal tax filings obscured until now the compensation paid to Moore, whose defeat last month of President Trump’s choice for Republican nominee in the Senate race will likely embolden far-right challengers to the party’s mainstream incumbents. Moore is the front-runner in the race to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
....



Seven charity and tax law specialists consulted by The Post said the nonprofit’s activities raised questions about compliance with IRS rules, including prohibitions on the use of a charity for the private benefit or enrichment of an individual.

When folks say they're not taking a "regular salary" for work they're doing, always look at other forms of income.

2. You do know, of course

That it's okay to defraud in the progress of Christian values.

Also, since this was disclosed by the liberal rag, Washington Post (and what sort of name is Bezos anyway), it will be okay with Moore's voters. Also, it's nothing they wouldn't do if they could get away with it. Right and wrong are relative in the family values crowd.

So, wouldn't that make Roe a moral law, or legislation to legalize pot?
My morals, of course differ greatly from their morals!
Because mine are based on ethics!

And apparently it was primarily funding him instead.

A charity that pays to the charity owner seems rather Trumpian to me.

14. Does the IRS know about this?

They do now.

Will they do anything about it?

The Treasury Secretary and the Attorney General are Republicans. What do you think?

Will Moore pay a cent of taxes on this unreported income? When Godot shows up, maybe.

Will he lose one Republican vote or get one negative comment on Fox Noise because of it? If Godot brings three of his cousins and his long lost Uncle Fred when he comes.

Roy Moore campaign says 'sleazy tactics' led to report critical of foundation

Updated on October 12, 2017 at 7:24 PM Posted on October 12, 2017 at 6:37 PM

By Paul Gattis pgattis@al.com

More than 24 hours after a Washington Post report told of questionable accounting practices in Senate candidate Roy Moore's non-profit foundation, the campaign fired back with a defiant statement that accused the newspaper of "sleazy tactics." ... The campaign released a statement just after 6 p.m. Thursday from campaign chair Bill Armistead.
....

Moore is speaking at a Republican gala in Huntsville on Thursday night and was scheduled to meet briefly with reporters after the speech. But at the gala, the Moore campaign said that Moore will now no longer talk with reporters.

In his statement, Armistead blasted The Post and the story's reporters but took no issue with the contents of the newspaper report. ... "In the past week, two reporters for the Washington Post have engaged in writing a so-called 'investigative' report on Judge Roy Moore," Armistead said. "They have harassed family, friends and neighbors and have also attempted to gain access to the Foundation of Moral Law building under false pretensions. That story culminated in an article published yesterday morning.
....

Updated today, Oct. 12, 2017, at 7:23 p.m. with Moore refusing to meet with reporters as scheduled at Huntsville event.

23. Is this being reported in local news media in Alabama?

Someone needs to put up a billboard asking him why he takes this big money from a charity.
