Source Claimed $10,000 Reward For Independent Assassination

FBI Investigated Gay Falwell Plot

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.
