MOORE CAMPAIGN CALLS ON WASHINGTON POST TO ISSUE CORRECTION FOR INACCURATE REPORTING

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Today, Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead in a statement called on the Washington Post to issue a correction regarding its recent inaccurate reporting on Judge Roy Moore:

"The Washington Post recently published a number of hit pieces on Judge Moore and how he was compensated by the Foundation for Moral Law for work performed on their behalf. The stories have contained misrepresentations and inconsistencies designed, not to tell the truth, but to hurt Judge Moore politically.

“Consider: in an October 11th story, the Post claimed that Judge Moore earned more than $1 million from the Foundation for Moral Law from 2007-2012. Yet in a story today, the Post contradicted itself and admitted the Judge earned far less than what the Post originally reported.

“In today’s story, the Post alleges that Judge Moore failed to pay taxes on a promissory note he was issued as an IOU by the Foundation, but the law requires no one to pay taxes on income not yet received.

"Jimmy Williamson, a CPA, former IRS agent, and past Chairman of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants further confirmed this: 'Mortgages and promissory notes for payment are not designated as income received until those moneys are paid. According to IRS Publication No. 17, individuals report income only when received.’

“Judge Moore is an honorable man who has served the public according to the highest of ethical standards and in accordance with the law. The Washington Post should retract its story immediately and fire the reporters who cooked up this latest batch of fake news."
