Roy Moore's 'Jewish Attorney' Is a Practicing Christian

Kayla Moore's

But now that Moore has lost his special election in Alabama and his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, has been sworn in, his wife is ready to explain her comment and reveal the identity of their "Jewish lawyer".

He was later hired to the Foundation of Moral Law, founded by Roy Moore, as a staff attorney.

"I'm a Messianic Jew", Wishnatsky told, a website for several Alabama newspapers. Wishnatsky considers himself "a Jewish person who has accepted Christ".

After that, Wishnatsky experimented with Mormonism and later became an evangelical Protestant Christian.

There had been speculation that Kayla Moore had been referring to Richard Jaffe, a Birmingham attorney who had represented the Moores' son, Caleb, on a drug charge.

He told the publication that his grandparents immigrated from Eastern Europe and that while he grew up attending synagogue and a Jewish school that "It was just an ethnic characteristic".

In his 30s, he became a practicing Christian. He graduated from LU's law school in 2012 and interned with Liberty Counsel.

He told he has had a varied career, working as a college instructor, stockbroker, paralegal, and financial consultant.

He has always been active in the anti-abortion movement and served 18 months in prison for blocking abortion clinics. He ended up in North Dakota, where he met Moore in 1996. This was when Moore was a judge in Etowah County, Ala., before his controversial display of a Ten Commandments monument at the Alabama Supreme Court - something that got him removed as chief justice in 2003.

In a lawsuit that echoes a civil case against President Trump, an Alabama woman on Thursday sued failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and his campaign for defamation, citing harsh personal attacks she faced after coming forward with allegations that he touched her sexually when she was 14 years old. It's whether you take God seriously. Wishnatsky told "Does that make any sense?"

This explanation differs from the person who many publications thought the Moores were referencing as their lawyer.

Wishnatsky, a fervent anti-abortion activist, refers to people who convert from Judaism and Christianity as both Christians and Jews.

Kayla Moore was responding to critical coverage of her husband's suggestion that the liberal Jewish philanthropist George Soros was headed to hell because he had not accepted salvation.

And unlike Jaffe, he was definitely not a Jones supporter. "Jones's candidacy is a stark reminder of how ungodly the Democratic Party has become", he wrote.
