A D.C.-area pastor ripped-off the Paycheck Protection Program for $1.5-million, spending the money to purchase 39-cars.
Pastor Rudolph Brooks Jr., founder and senior pastor of the Kingdom Tabernacle of Restoration Ministries in Washington, D.C., is now facing up to 20 years in prison after he was arrested for fraudulently obtaining more than $1.5 million from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he then splurged on personal expenses, including 39 cars.
A release from the Department of Justice said Brooks, 45, was arrested earlier this month by federal authorities who also seized some $2.2 million he deposited in various bank accounts as well as a 2018 Tesla Model 3.
The church’s Web site appears to be down, but an archived Google version of the site says this (bad spelling and –grammar in original):
Pastor Rudolph E. Brooks is the Founder and Senior Pastor of the Kingdom Tabernacle of Restoration Ministries, Inc, a growing ministry in Washington, DC. He is a man after God’s own heart and has a passion for God’s people. From an early age Pastor Brooks knew he had a calling for ministry.
So there you go … it’s just one more example of Democrat Meanies tormenting the Godly.
