Tony Alamo Strikes Again

Mattress master Tempur-Pedic International has sued Waste to Charity — a New Jersey nonprofit organization — in federal court for $15-million, accusing it of selling half of the 8,000 mattresses the company donated to Hurricane Katrina refugees.

The mattress company alleges that instead of distributing mattresses to storm victims, officials at the alleged charity negotiated side deals to sell 4,000 of them at drastically discounted prices, netting a cool profit of $500,000.

The other half of the mattresses are reportedly sitting in an Arkansas warehouse owned by cult leader and convicted felon Bernie Lazar Hoffman, aka Tony Alamo.

Tempur-Pedic apparently discovered the location of the missing goods when it sent an employee undercover, along with the original informant against the nonprofit group, to negotiate another illegal sale.
