HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the United States Senate, announced Sunday evening at an event that he plans to sue the Washington Post for its series of hit pieces against him, his wife, his foundation, and his campaign.
Breitbart News was granted exclusive access to the event, which was closed to the press. After the Judge’s speech, his wife Kayla spoke out in a forthcoming exclusive Breitbart News interview — her first-ever interview with the press during this campaign and the first time she has spoken out publicly in response to the salacious allegations from the Post.
“Shortly after becoming the Republican nominee for the United States Senate, the Washington Post published an article attacking me, my wife, my Foundation for Moral Law in Montgomery, Alabama, on my salary,” Moore announced to a crowd of about 100 supporters at the Huntsville Christian Academy:
THEY SAID I TOOK OVER A MILLION DOLLARS. THERE WERE NOT A MILLION DOLLARS. I WISH I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS. IN FACT, I DIDN’T TAKE THE MONEY THEY AWARDED ME FOR A SALARY BECAUSE I HAD MY OWN RECOGNITION AND OPTED TO EMBRACE THAT SALARY MYSELF AND NOT TAKE ANYTHING FROM THE FOUNDATION. SO MY SALARY COLLECTION WASN’T SO MUCH. OVER EIGHT YEARS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT $87,000 A YEAR—SO I HAD TO TAKE A NOTE AND A MORTGAGE FOR THE REST OF IT. BUT I NEVER GOT THE MONEY. SO, THE WASHINGTON POST FINALLY REALIZED THIS AFTER THEY PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE SAYING MY WIFE AND I GOT A MILLION DOLLARS, SAYING, “YOU DIDN’T PAY TAXES FOR WHAT YOU DIDN’T GET.”
The audience laughed before Moore continued.
