On April 1, 2010, the Montgomery Advertiser offered a "Houses of the Rich and Famous"-style article about the manse of Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Misleading about immigration and related topics and enabling illegal immigration has been very good for the SPLC and also very good for Dees himself, as can be seen in the photos (link; article formerly located here; via this).
Knick knacks to be found in the pictures include a decorative rickshaw, some sort of sculpture with what appear to be snakes, what might be a matador's outfit, and, perhaps oddest of all, what appears to be a working loom. There's also an indoor-outdoor pool for when things get too hot.
Just because someone runs a "non profit" doesn't mean they have to live like a Catholic Worker; the issue is how he's made his money.
