Rapert's little foundation: A church-state combination footnote

I reported here yesterday on Sen. Jason Rapert's appearance on a local televangelist's TV show to say a foundation he'd created to raise money for a 10 Commandments monument at the Capitol had raised enough money to get the stone tablet made and he hoped it would be in place soon.

I noted that the nonprofit established for the cause, the American History and Heritage Foundation, was incorporated by the Fayetteville lawyer, Travis Story, who's been a leader in the fight to claim religious protection for discriminating against gay people (a cause Rapert also favors).

A reader notes that Rapert is Board president of the Foundation, according to his annual financial disclosure statement. The postoffice box to which Rapert solicits donations for the 10 Commandments monument is the same as that used by his Senate campaign fund and by his Holy Ghost Ministries. To give just another example of Bro. Rupert blending church and state.
