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.
Let’s give a little more money to the Democrat running against Moore, Doug Jones. Jones is the guy who, as a prosecutor, put away the KKK members who murdered four African-American girls in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. He deserves our support.
