Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) received more than $1 million from a charity group between 2007 and 2012 for part-time work despite claiming he received no "regular salary" from the group, according to a new report. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Moore had arranged to take a yearly salary of $180,000 from the Alabama-based Foundation for Moral Law, a charity he founded to promote Christian values in government. Moore told a jury in 2011 that his salary was not a "regular" one from the foundation but rather a "special project" he set up.

"My salary does not come by way of a regular salary from the Foundation, but through a special project that I run so that I don't inhibit the Foundation," Moore said in August of that year.

That special project was "Project Jeremiah," a fundraising effort spearheaded by Moore that the former Alabama chief justice proposed would pay for his special salary. However, a deal with the group stated that the charity would pay the difference if Project Jeremiah was unable to fund Moore's desired $180,000 in a given year, according to the Post.

Despite this, the group was unable to afford to pay all of Moore's salary when he left the group in 2012 and instead gave him a promissory note that eventually became worth $540,000 or an equal stake in a historic building in Montgomery, Ala., the charity's most valuable asset, the newspaper reported.

He's like virtually all the rest of the Christian fundamentalist hypocrites. Feet of clay.

But he talks about Jesus so they are too dumb to look beyond that. Welcome to the Land of the Faithful.

There is no such thing as, "Christian fund-raising". The concept is non-existent in the Bible. There is only the tithing of one's prosperity with the teacher who taught you.

Moore is just another like the hypocritical Pharisees of Jesus' time for whom he reserved his most vehement condemnation.

So a "special project" within a charity he founded pays him $180K a year? It's like being a preacher without preaching!

Sadly this POS will probably win cuz Alabamans have to vote for Jeebus.

This is why Trump was so discouraged when Moore win. Moore is just like Trump but he'll probably be a lot more popular because he's a redneck too.

Politicians like Moore have been forty years in the making. Lee Atwater and all that.

"Moral Law, a charity he founded to promote Christian values in government"

What a slimy S.O.B.

Hey! Why didn't I think of that? It's a lot better than just using your charity to pay penalties and buy paintings of myself.

Roy Moore is many things, but an idiot isn't one of them. Take a good look at him. He knows full well that Alabama conservatives (and Republicans) will vote in a shady used car salesman, so long as he presents himself as Jesus' personal rodeo clown.
