Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's compensation from a legal charity he founded includes a $540,000 financial stake in the group's building



MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's compensation from a legal charity he founded includes a $540,000 financial stake in the group's building.

Moore's compensation has become an issue in his U.S. Senate race.

Property records show the Foundation for Moral Law on Feb. 17, 2011, gave Moore a $393,000 promissory note and mortgage on its building. The foundation's board said it was for unpaid salary promised to Moore as the group's president. The amount was later boosted to $498,000 and $540,000.

Moore told The Associated Press that the foundation had agreed to pay him an amount equal to his pay as chief justice. Moore said the charity had difficulty raising the $180.000. He said he has not been paid the promissory note.
