Jay Sekulow's Son Made Close to $1 Million From Family Charity - 2017-07-03
Poor Christians opened their wallets to a religious nonprofit run by Donald Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow. In turn, Sekulow hired one of his own teenage sons—straight out of a Nickelodeon internship—and named him a "director" of the charity, where the son subsequently earned nearly a million dollars.
Authorities in New York and North Carolina are investigating Sekulow's charity, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, following reports that the nonprofit doled out millions to Sekulow and his immediate family. On Tuesday, The Guardian revealed that the so-called charity led an aggressive telemarketing campaign, asking impoverished Christians to "sacrifice" their money, or warning them that "Islamic extremists are headed in your direction, and you are most likely the main target."
Over $886,000 of those donations from CASE and its related organizations was paid out to Logan Sekulow, Jay's son, who was first named a CASE "director" when he was just 18.
