Roy Moore can’t seem to keep his stories straight.
According to reporting by Lachlan Markay, Moore’s disclosures to the Alabama Ethics Commission and his disclosures to the Senate Ethics Committee are vastly different, including $150,000 in speaking fees somehow disappearing once he started eyeing the Alabama Senate race – and his long awaited ticket to D.C.
He also hid debts of up to $250,000 from the Senate Ethics Committee that he had previously disclosed to the Alabama Ethics Commission.
And in case you’re wondering if this is a one-time flub, the answer is a resounding “no.” Between Moore’s own disclosures and the tax filings of his phony “Foundation for Moral Law,” which seems to exist primarily to raise money for himself, his wife, and his constantly-arrested son, his wife Kayla either was or was not paid $65,000 in 2014.
To be fair, we should probably just go ahead and assume that Kayla did get the money. After all, in the eight years between 2005, when FML was granted tax-exempt status, and 2013, the Moore clan pocketed more than $1,000,000 from the foundation.
Looks like Moore’s going to fit in just fine if voters send him to Washington.
