Roy Moore’s Senate Campaign Claims Federal Income Forms Filed By His Hate Group Have Been “Fabricated”

Roy Moore’s US Senate campaign is now claiming that the income forms filed by his hate group are either fraudulent or “fabricated.” Seriously.

The Daily Beast reports:

The 2014 form filed by the Foundation for Moral Law (FML) says the Alabama conservative ex-chief justice’s wife, Kayla Moore, did not receive compensation from the group despite serving as its president. That is contradicted by a separate filing Roy Moore made to the Alabama Ethics Commission last year, in which he said that his wife earned $65,000 from FML.

Asked about the discrepancy, Brett Doster, a spokesman for the Moore Senate campaign, insisted that the publicly available filing “is a fabricated document.” The version that the FML filed with the Internal Revenue Service, Doster added, noted Kayla Moore’s income for the year, “so I do not know what [sic] the foundation’s version of the [form] has it zeroed out. It has somehow been changed.”

The discrepancy over Kayla Moore’s income listings is just one of several questionable disclosures made by the Moores and their nonprofit group that were flagged in a review of forms by The Daily Beast last week.

The Foundation For Moral Law advocates for instilling “biblical law” in the federal government. Their primary actions since being founded by Moore in 2002 are filing amicus briefs in LGBT civil rights cases and pleading for donations.

    Roy Moore is a liar? Who’d have guessed.

      Most advocates for “biblical” law ARE liars.They have to be.

        There is an article by Adam Kirsch in the most recent issue of TABLET Magazine about how the Talmud seeks to temper the harsh laws given in the Torah, specifically about stoning a rebellious son. It is too long to paste here, but the take away is that the rabbis made these capital punishment penalties impossible to carry out because they had more education and compassion than hate-filled Christians using the Bible as a weapon. The final two paragraphs explain the reason and logic of the process:

        “Here we come to the core of the issue. The Talmud has essentially
        canceled a provision of the Torah. But if the Torah is God’s word, by
        what right can the rabbis do this? The answer is that they do not
        believe, or admit, they are introducing any novelties into the law.
        Rather, they are explicating what the law always meant, and so there is
        no actual change in Jewish practice. No stubborn and rebellious son ever
        existed in the past, which is why none will ever exist in the future.

        But if that is so, then why did God put this law in the Torah in the
        first place? “Why was it written?” the Gemara asks, and gives a
        wonderful reply: “So that you may expound and receive reward.” Living by
        the law is one thing, and it is required of every Jew; but studying and
        analyzing the law is the real glory of Judaism. Indeed, God makes
        unenforceable laws simply so that scholars can analyze why they are
        unenforceable! If someone asked me for a Talmudic passage that
        encapsulates the ethos of rabbinic Judaism, I think I would choose this
        one, in all its mercifulness, ingenuity, and love of thinking for its
        own sake.”

          Wow. Here is Richard Bransons full post from October 16, 2016:

          After my last trip to the US, I shared my views on the presidential election. Having just completed another visit to Boston, Dallas and Miami, I wanted to share a previous encounter I had with Donald Trump.
          Some years ago, Mr Trump invited me to lunch for a one-to-one meeting at his apartment in Manhattan. We had not met before and I accepted. Even before the starters arrived he began telling me about how he had asked a number of people for help after his latest bankruptcy and how five of them were unwilling to help. He told me he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people.
          He didn’t speak about anything else and I found it very bizarre. I told him I didn’t think it was the best way of spending his life. I said it was going to eat him up, and do more damage to him than them. There must be more constructive ways to spend the rest of your life. (Hopefully my advice didn’t lead to him running for President!)
          I was baffled why he had invited me to lunch solely to tell me this. For a moment, I even wondered if he was going to ask me for financial help. If he had, I would have become the sixth person on his list!
          I left the lunch feeling disturbed and saddened by what I’d heard. There are a lot of frightening things about this election; not least that policy has been pushed so far down the agenda. What concerns me most, based upon my personal experiences with Donald Trump, is his vindictive streak, which could be so dangerous if he got into the White House. For somebody who is running to be the leader of the free world to be so wrapped up in himself, rather than concerned with global issues, is very worrying.

          Later, I remember contrasting the lunch with a one-to-one lunch I shared with Hillary Clinton. Here we talked about education reform, the war on drugs, women’s rights, conflicts around the globe and the death penalty. She was a good listener as well as an eloquent speaker. As she understands well, the President of the United States needs to understand and be engaged with wider world issues, rather than be consumed by petty personal quarrels.

      Like in the 60s in social studies we learned that any country with a name incorporating the words, “People’s” “Democratic” and/or “Republic” or variations thereon had nothing to do with any of them. It’s the same with these dirty rotten pig fuckers; their work is anything but God’s.

    Mr. Moore, the IRS would like a word with you.

  • Ken M

    Please don’t say that Trump’s man Strange might win because of this.

    • clay

      Too late for that– his only opponent, now, is a Democrat.

      • matrem

        So if Moore is charged with tax fraud, is he disqualified? Would the democratic opponent automatically win?

        • clay

          It’s Alabama; he’d have to be convicted, maybe even sentenced for them to kick him off the ballot.

          It’s the GOP; he’d have to be convicted for them to refuse seating him.

          • matrem

            And if Montana is anything to go by, conviction doesn’t rule him out either.

          • nocadrummer

            Even if he passed and was buried, the GOP in some states might STILL seat him.
            “Okay, so he missed most of his votes, but he’s still better than the librul Democrat! We can run him again!” /s

      • Capritaur

        Is anything stopping him from mounting a write-in campaign? It’s not like he doesn’t have a chance given his establishment status against an extremist à la Murskowski. I don’t care if he wins but at the very least he’ll split the Republican votes.

        • clay

          But that’s the thing, Moore is actually more establishment than Strange. Moore has been a public official in Alabama more than twice as long as Strange has been. And Strange just lost his “official” status so . . . no Senate super-PAC money for him.

    Biblical law is the KKKristian equivalent of Sharia law. IMHO Wouldn’t want to live under either.

    Biblical law — or Sharia law as it’s sometimes known — is law for old white men who want to have many young wives. Perfectly legal and God’s will and all that.

  • Texndoc

    I’m curious why Alabama Democrats didn’t get a woman to face him. I can remember when Ann Richards was widely expected to lose to Clayton Williams and a “rape joke” changed everything about that Governor’s race. He was financially and poll wise much ahead at the time. I don’t even know who’s running against Moore, probably 3/4s of Alabama doesn’t know either.

    • William

      Clayton Williams’ refusal to shake Ann Richards hand swayed more voters than the rape joke.

      • Texndoc

        By then she had pulled ahead and was riding high with it. It all started with the weather rape joke. It was a bullet to the head. Like the guy in Missouri who said good girls don’t get pregnant from rape. Thing is Moore would probably get away with both statements if there isn’t a decent moderate choice beside him.
