Remember Ted Haggard, the right-wing preacher who got busted for having sex with a male prostitute, and buying meth from him?
If Bonnie Goldstein at Slate is right, he might be entering the lucrative field of financial shenanigans (a career for which his experience as a preacher prepared him well) (maybe he can share a cell with Kent Hovind).
The nutshell version: he doesn’t have his old salary, and in the current housing market, he can’t sell his $700,000 house, so he sent out a letter asking people to donate to Families With A Mission, which will pass on 90% of donations to Haggard, and keep 10% for administrative expenses.
However, it appears that Families With A Mission was dissolved in February 2007. And its registered agent was a sex offender.
So something funny’s going on.
