Things just went from bad to worse to worser for Jerry Falwell Jr.
After it was revealed last week that he and his wife, Becki, are allegedly into cuckolding and enticed several young, musclebound, 20-something men into their bedroom then paid them for their silence with sweetheart real estate deals and under the table personal loans, Falwell was forced to resign as president of Liberty University.
Now, the Christian college has announced it’s opening an investigation into Falwell’s past financial, real estate, and legal dealings while serving as president.
In a statement, Liberty University’s Executive Committee, acting on behalf of its Board of Trustees, said the recent revelations about Falwell’s less-than-Christian behavior have “challenged all of us to the core.”
“Some may say that all the signs were there for a long time before last week,” the statement reads. “It’s certainly fair to say that there were questionable comments made, worrying behavior, and inappropriate social media posts, but all the signs were not there until the start of last week.”
We beg to differ. We’ve been reporting on Falwell’s non-Christian party boy behavior for literally years.
The statement continues: “While we still didn’t know the full scope of the matter, we have learned enough about the past to know that we had no choice but to take the leadership of Liberty University in a new direction.”
Falwell was ousted and now, the executive committee says, he’s being investigated.
“One of the leading forensic firms in the world has been retained by Liberty University’s Board of Trustees to conduct a thorough investigation into all facets of Liberty University operations during Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s tenure as President, including but not limited to financial, real estate, and legal matters.”
Falwell hasn’t issued any comment on Liberty University launching an investigation into his behavior, but he did tell CBS News last week that “90%” of what has been reported about him is false, #fakenews, lies, totally not true, nothing to see here folks.
Oh, and for the record, just because Liberty University has suddenly decided Jerry Falwell Jr. is a creep and is doing everything it can to distance itself from him, it’s still a super homophobic institution founded in hatred that continues to breed animosity, divisiveness, and bigotry. That’s a stench it will never be able to cleanse from itself.
