Roy Moore's salary from foundation draws scrutiny

Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore was promised a $180,000 a year salary in the five years he was president of a Montgomery-based charity, and the Foundation for Moral Law created a separate bank account and an unconventional vehicle to pay Moore, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

AL.com previously reported on the foundation taking out a second mortgage to pay Moore $465,000 in back pay at the same time it unsuccessfully fought a breach of contract lawsuit from a company that helped the charity raised funds.

Moore's salary from 2007-2012 didn't jibe with the foundation's tax records, and the Post discovered that the judge's salary had been under-reported.

The Post report outlines how the foundation's board, which includes Moore's wife, Kayla Moore, agreed to pay Moore the $180,000 a year salary, and drew up a promissory note for years where fundraising fell short of that mark. The note also entitled Moore to a $565,000 stake in the foundation's headquarters on Dexter Avenue in Montgomery, which would allow Moore to recoup the money by selling the building. Kayla Moore recused herself from the decision.

2. Wow, I need to start my own foundation!

See how much fun it can be: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundation_for_Moral_Law

(snip)
The IRS granted the group tax-exempt status in 2005. As of August 2017, the Foundation had not filed Form 990s for 2015 or 2016.

From 2005 through 2013, Roy Moore and his family drew $1,030,875 from the Foundation for Moral Law. In 2016, Kayla Moore earned more than $10,000 as president of the foundation. In the 2017 Alabama special election for the U.S. Senate, these payments became the focus of television attack ads against Moore, a candidate for the Republican nomination.

3. He's hit the republican trifecta

A scofflaw religious zealot stealing from a charity. He'll win in a landslide.

4. That word they keep using -- "moral"

I don't think it means what they think it means.
