Ted Haggard: Questions raised over evangelists financial plea, future plans

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – An address where fallen Colorado Springs evangelical leader Ted Haggard said supporters could send him donations is the same as one listed for a man registered as a sex offender in Hawaii.

In an e-mail to a Colorado Springs television station, Haggard said he would seek financial support while working in a halfway house.

The e-mail said supporters could send donations either directly to his family or to a Colorado Springs post office box held by a group called Families With a Mission.

According to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, Families With a Mission lists the post office box as a mailing address for Paul Huberty. Huberty is listed in Hawaii’s sex offender registry for attempted sexual assault in Monument, Colorado.

In the e-mail, Haggard said he planned to move into a faith-based halfway house called the Dream Center and counsel people. The halfway house is affiliated with Phoenix First Assembly of God.

On Monday, church pastor Leo Godzich said Haggard would not be moving in to the Dream Center or counseling people there.

Godzich says his church also had no knowledge of Families With a Mission or Huberty.
