AL.com‘s Tuesday night article on Roy Moore’s foundation raised even more questions for the U.S. Senate candidate ahead of a Sept. 26 runoff.
Ex-Chief Justice Roy Moore is facing more questions about the financial management of his non-profit organization this week, according to AL.com.
The issues have become a regular feature of the Alabama U.S. Senate race between Moore and Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL).
The latest questions arose from a Howard Koplowitz article exploring the Foundation for Moral Law (FML)’s unsuccessful lawsuit against a Christian fundraising firm, and FML’s decision to take out a second mortgage on its building “to pay Moore years of back pay.”
As the Foundation for Moral Law fought – unsuccessfully – a lawsuit against it by a firm that helped the nonprofit raise money, the organization with ties to U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore took out a second mortgage on its Montgomery building to pay Moore years of back pay, federal court filings and Montgomery County probate records showed.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear years later who paid the $465,000 judgement against the foundation because the organization has not filed its taxes since 2014 and didn’t report the payment in its most recently filed tax returns.
Koplowitz noted that AL.com called Kayla Moore, who leads FML, and she did not return any calls.
NTK Network reported earlier this month that FML has run a deficit “in six of the past seven years.”
Moore fashions himself a fiscal hawk, but such mismanagement at a once-popular non-profit raises questions about his ability to manage his own finances.
