An unknown source had some fun fooling the FBI.

Freshly unsealed files reveal that someone alleged Cincinnati’s gays wanted homophobic Reverend Jerry Falwell felled. In fact, the harbinger specified the date: 7/4/83, after which the lucky killer would receive a $10,000 reward.

The Bureau apparently took the 1983 threat seriously, because they dispatched agents to the 513 to investigate the queer claim. While they didn’t find evidence of a plot, they did discover a. even Ohio’s homos hate Falwell and b. there were more gay bars than lesbians bars in Cincinnati.

And yet they couldn’t stop 9/11. Astounding.
