Roy Moore's financial disclosure forms are raising questions as a report Thursday found discrepancies in two separate filings.
Moore, who just won the Republican runoff to compete for one of Alabama's U.S. Senate seats, made different claims in his filings with the Alabama Ethics Commission and the Senate Ethics Committee two months later.
He reported between $50,000 and $150,000 for "honorariums" as part of speaking engagements in 2016 in his Alabama Ethics Commission filing, but in his report with the Senate he reported no money received "for an article, speech, or appearance," according to the Daily Beast.
Moore, who was previously the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, also reported far less in outstanding liabilities for himself and his wife in his Alabama filing, no more than $10,0000, versus his Senate one in which he declared between $150,000 and $250,000 owed to a credit union or savings and loan.
A spokesperson for Moore did not immediately return the Daily Beast's request for comment. Brendan Fischer, the director of the Campaign Legal Center, a watchdog group, said that it was "surprising" that "these violations are so egregious" and cast doubt on whether Moore did not understand how to properly fill out the forms.
