Name: Roy Stewart Moore
Born: February 11, 1947
Occupation: Politician, attorney and judge
Roy Moore was born in Gadsden, Alabama on February 11, 1947. He is the son of Roy Baxter Moore, a United States soldier, and Evelyn Stewart, a homemaker. He has four siblings: Joey, Toni, Nancy Barksdale and Michael Joseph.
Roy studied at the United States Military Academy at West Point, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree. He also attended the University of Alabama School of Law, earning a Juris Doctor degree.
He is married to Kayla Moore, president of the Foundation for Moral Law, and the couple has four children: Caleb, Micah, Heather and Ory.
Roy served in the U.S. military, acting as a Military Police Officer and stationed in Georgia, Germany and Vietnam. After he served and finished school, Roy went into private practice in his hometown of Gadsden, focusing on personal injury and insurance.
Roy went to the district attorney’s office and worked as a full-time prosecutor in Etowah County. He attempted to run for public office on a couple of occasions as a Democrat, but lost each election. But he was soon appointed to Etowah County Circuit Judge, and he continued to serve in that capacity between 1992 and 2000.
After running a successful campaign in 2000, he was sworn in as Chief Justice in the Alabama Supreme Court, but was ousted just a few short years later. He ran again in 2011 and was victorious, beating out his fellow Republican and Democratic colleagues, many of whom were better funded.
In April 2017, Roy announced that he would run for the U.S. Senate seat that was vacated by Attorney General Jeff Session – it was temporarily occupied by Luther Strange. He was successful in the GOP primary, defeating Luther Strange, and will go on to face former U.S. attorney Doug Jones in the general election in December.
In addition to holding public office, he also wrote a column for World Net Daily between 2006 and 2009.
Some of Roy’s positions include believing former President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. and is secretly a practicing Muslim; opposing pre-school and the education of evolution; supporting making homosexuality and same-sex marriage illegal; and repealing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). He also supports the integration of church and state and blames the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the Sandy Hook massacre for Americans’ decreasing religiosity.
We estimate that Roy Moore’s net worth is $2.5 million (2017).
So how much is $2.5 million really?
$2.5 million can cover a portion of the costs of a senate campaign. $2.5 million can also pay to ship Roy Moore to an isolated part of the planet.
