REVEALED: Undisclosed Deal With Roy Moore’s Hate Group Guaranteed $180,000 Salary For Part-Time Work

The Washington Post reports:

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.

NOTE: As longtime readers know, I’ve mentioned Roy Moore’s salary from the Foundation For Moral Law many times over the years. I knew something like this was coming after reporters reached out to me earlier this week.

  • Tawreos

    It won’t matter a bit that he is a lying shitweasel, mostly because he is a lying shitweasel for Jesus and the folks in Alabama won’t see a problem with that.

  • bkmn

    Isn’t failure to properly report executive salaries a violation of tax law?

    • JWC

      This fuck, like all GOP are above the law

    • Tawreos

      If it is I doubt the IRS will do anything about it since it is a christian charity and no one will care if it broke the law only that the IRS is going after them.

      • clay

        Yeah, it would more likely be a state incorporation violation.
        Though, on the other hand, it might be big enough to kick them completely out of the category of “charity”, Christian, or otherwise.
        They should check to see if there were any non-salary, and non-political outlays.

      • jerry

        Unlike a church, though, this organization had received an exempt status and was filing Form 990 each year as a charitable organization.

        • David Walker

          They just weren’t truthful ones. In PA, that used to be grounds for denying nonprofit, charitable status. I doubt, in this golden age of banana republicanism, that it matters, here or federally.

    • David Walker

      I do like your sense of humor. You know what’s running the country and you pose that question. I love it.

    You filthy, god addled pig. If jesus were an actual thing He’d hate you.

    • Tor

      Does this “charity” actually do anything?

      • Chucktech

        Fuck if I know. Just the fact that this giant, god-snorting pig would shake down a charity just shows what utter, sub-pond pond scum he is.

        • TimCA

          Well at least the more $$ Moore can siphon off this type of charity (anti-LGBT bigots) and use to help feed his kid’s drug habit, mortgage, yacht or whatever, the better off I’m sure LGBT people will be in Alabama.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          A thousand upvotes for giant, god-snorting pig

    Fundamentalist Christians can’t count that high and are intellectually challenged so they cannot comprehend how large a salary that is, especially in a backward place like Alabama.

  • Reading through the long WP story in detail (really great reporting in there), I’m struck by how Moore was soaking his ‘charity’ so much for guaranteed income, he had it begin cannibalizing its own assets to keep paying him.

      • jerry

        Exempt organizations do have limits on how much they can pay their top officers…and this appears to be as much as they were taking in. At the least, they need their exempt status yanked.

        • True. But it’s looking like they falsely reported how much they were paying Moore (and there’s no info on how much was being funneled to his kids).

          If it can be proven Moore materially directed the activities of the ‘charity’ which was enriching him so handsomely, he could be found liable for their false filings.

          • jerry

            It appears that in the most recent filings available, everything going to Roy Moore was off the books, or hidden in non-executive pay, or in other expenses. His wife got a $65,000 salary in 2013 and none in 2014. Any amount paid to Roy or other family members, while his wife was president would be self-dealing–see Trump Foundation. In years prior to that, Roy was president and getting the ridiculous salary.

They live to force the bible on people all the while cheating and stealing and hooking and drugging. They are a horrid people there and it pains me to know I have small nieces and nephews growing up in that hell hole.

    • He does seem to keep winning elections, including twice to the Alabama Supreme Court…and then the law intervenes and strips him of his job.

      If intentional tax fraud can be proven, he might be elected Senator, but he’ll still face charges.

    This whole nonprofit thing is the way politicians seem to be going. The author of ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ J D Vance, who appears ready to announce some kind of political career in Ohio, has a nonprofit to address the ideas and addressing the problems identified in the book. He is listed as ‘honorary chairman’ but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pay for his expenses going around the state promoting himself.

    http://ourohiorenewal.com/

    Are these nonprofits being used as a way to promote politicians outside of the reporting of donations necessary by election laws? They don’t seem to be doing anything else.

      To be fair, America is pretty over air conditioned compared to Europe.

    • Macbill

      Itchy genitals lead to occasions of sin.

    • UrsusArctos

      Most cities south of Interstate 20 would cease to be viable. That’s why the “Sun Belt” didn’t grow across the south until A/C became affordable.
      “Up until 1972, U.K. diplomats serving in Houston, New Orleans and St. Louis were eligible for increased pension benefits. What’s more, Houston and New Orleans were considered “hot places” for which consular officers could receive an “outfit allowance” to purchase clothing necessary for “climatic reasons.” -WapPo 2008

  • TimCA

    Poor Roy. His life’s ambition to someday move up into the higher echelons of mega-grifting has just hit a bump in the road. What’s $540k when one could have eventually amassed a fortune the size of an Osteen, Graham or Robertson? (I kid you not. There are some experts who maintain that Pat Robertson is worth almost a billion dollars).

    • jerry

      If, by some slim chance, his bid for the Senate fails, Trump will appoint him to the Federal bench.

      • Macbill

        Maybe a spot on the Supreme Ct, should one be available.

      • Nychta

        Scary, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

    • David Walker

      And he knows he can take it with him.

  • Cuberly Deux

    Drain the bayou!…Drain the bayou!…Drain the….oh wait…

    • UrsusArctos

      Roy Moore’s from upstate, along the Coosa River. Drain the backwater would be Moore appropriate.

      • Cuberly Deux

        lol…I’m obviously not up on my AL geography…lol…

      • Snarkaholic

        Or Drain the Outhouse!

  • acde

    Only $180,00 for part – time? – why, Don’t you know that’s truly christian charity and love all in one.

    • Snarkaholic

      Yet, when it comes to spending/tipping, they’re sooooo fucking cheap!

  • dcurlee

    Headed to Fl yesterday and driving through AL say his election signs. Made me want to puke

  • edrex

    can he be smited yet?

  • Jay George
    • Cuberly Deux

      Actually, didn’t Joe report that they were even paying their delinquent son for “part-time” work?

      • Jay George

        I believe so, but I’ve read so much about Moore, my eyeballs are crossed. Moone is an Alabama reporter that tends to lean liberal.

      • Hank

        Wonder how much of that salary went to support his drug habit, and if he is in jail, does he still get it???

      • William

        I thought Caleb was president or vice president of the foundation at one point.

        • Cuberly Deux

          Oh wow, that sounds familiar….yeah I think I’m gonna check around a bit.

      • CB

        For prison outreach, obviously.

    And good ol, Joe will be joining him soon either this weekend or next. Where is sanders though ? Haven’t heard from him since he tried to pull off an upset for Perriello.

  • Hank

    “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”

    • -M-

      Why does God need a historic building?

  • BeaverTales

    Christianists are always about the money. Never seen an exception to that rule. Hate is profitable.

  • Clive Johnson

    It’s dawned on probably most observers of the Christian right that the reason for their zealotry and pugnacious moralizing is that they themselves are the least capable of following their own strictures and most internally compelled to engage in wrongdoing. Therefore, they transfer their guilt onto others, notice that those same others are much more filthy sinners than they are as their guilty conscience demands that they must be, which in turn justifies their moralistic Buybull yapping.

    • -M-

      Distraction so people don’t notice what they’re doing and deflection in case they do.

  • Clive Johnson

    Liars for Jesus (TM)

  • Macbill

    • Nychta

      Thanks for the laugh. Who knows what wonders 2018 will bring? LOL.

    • agcons

      It’s amazing!!!111!

    • LeeCMH

      That should be on Trump’s IQ test.

    • William

      Can we spay and neuter these folks now?

      • CB

        Bob Barker would recommend it.

  • MB
  • Niblet58

    This was no charity, it was a slush fund like Trump’s “charity”.

  • LovesIrony

    His sheep enjoy fleecing and will vote for their wolf

    • LeeCMH

      They are nursing their Christian hatred, to the detriment of their own personal interests.

  • Richard B

    I wonder if his group, Foundation For Moral Law , was tax exempt?

    • Furface

      It’s a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

      • UrsusArctos

        501(c)(3) prophet, is what most of the religious right ones thing they are.

      • Richard B

        Roy Moore set himself up with quite a super sweet deal for someone from the ignorant, poorest part of the old south, especially if he was drawing that $180K part time salary while serving on the public’s dime as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
        Does anyone else think the public has substantially subsidized this man’s lifestyle and worldview long enough and he needs to be stopped ?

  • LeeCMH

    Moore needs to add Senator Keely of Birdcage fame, member of Citizens for Moral Order to his group.

  • Macbill

    I bet God told him he could do it, so go back to whatever you were doing: nothing to see here.

  • Friday

    Even more Southern Christofascist corruption, go figure.

  • HoratioCaine

    you can take the boy out of the outhouse and the snake handling church but you can’t take the snake handling church and the outhouse out of the boy. roy craves money. he has a fear of going back where he came from in the backwoods. – roy’s latest claim is that his sons current arrest is a political ploy.

    • UrsusArctos

      You nailed it. Dirt poor country boy was always ashamed of being dirt poor country boy, still is. I know plenty of people who grew up with Mr Moore. Almost to a person, they’ll tell you about how hard his family had it coming up, how X member of his family is wonderful, and that Roy has been an asshole since he was in diapers.

  • Michael White

    Fleece all of the RWNJ haters.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Let’s see… Your son’s a privileged felon, your wife runs a dubious charity, and you personally are a Christian crook. Are you a Republican?

  • RepublicansRNotConservative

    WWJD? Obviously, power and $$ are OK to Ole Roy and his flock of Christo-zombies.

  • CB

    These are the people that Christ (if he existed) would have fought against. These are the people who crucified him.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Oh, and Joe, I forgot, but have I lately told you how much I love you? I love you!

  • caphillprof

    He’s lucky his religion is fictitious.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      And you know he knows it is.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Boom. Chaching….

  • Rick Hammond

    Oh, like this will matter to the sheeple of Alabama. Yawn.

  • Kissmagrits

    Not a new thing….
    Remember the nineties when Oral Roberts tearfully explained that
    God was going to “call him home” if we didn’t send him a couple million dollars by a specific date? He missed the deadline and his ministry continued pouring money
    into assorted Tulsa pockets and his ersatz university.

    In fact, Michelle Bachman got her BA there which explains a lot.

  • Homo Erectus

    Hey – it takes a lot ot money to keep that kid outa jail!
