Report: Trump’s Federal Reserve pick rebuked over alimony

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump’s choice for the Federal Reserve Board was launched in contempt of court for failing to pay $300,000 in alimony and other payments related to your custody, according to a report from The Guardian.

Stephen Moore was reprimanded by a judge in November 2012 for not paying Allison Moore spousal support, child support and other money owed, the Guardian reported, citing Virginia court documents.

The judge ordered Moore to sell his home to fulfill the debt in 2013. But that was halted by his ex-wife afterwards Moore paid her about two-thirds of exactly that which he owed.

Moore is a former Trump campaign adviser who helped design the 2017 tax cuts along with the co-authored”Trumponomics.” He did not respond to a request for comment.
