You probably know the name Jerry Falwell Jr. because of the antics of his famous father.
Falwell Sr., co-founder of the Moral Majority, showed moral leadership to evangelical Christians for three decades by:
- calling one of the Teletubbies gay
- blaming 9/11 on abortion and feminism
- losing a landmark legal battle with Larry Flynt
- saying Brown v Board of Education was against the Bible
Well, prepare to meet the apple rotting at the base of the tree.
Falwell Sr. also founded Liberty University back in 1971 (just a year before he was charged with fraud by the SEC); his son is now the president of that institute.
Under the leadership of Falwell Jr., the Christian school has become… well, as one of the senior officials spilling the tea in Politico‘s eight-month investigation put it:
“We’re not a school; we’re a real estate hedge fund. We’re not educating; we’re buying real estate every year and taking students’ money to do it.”
Yes, in the blockbuster exposé, several high-ranking advisers with knowledge of the university’s inner workings are calling out the business practices of their president.
According to these whistleblowers, Falwell Jr. has been funneling university funds into real estate deals off which his family profited and awarding lucrative business contracts to friends — all of which is definitely self-dealing, possibly worse.
They say he uses fear of revenge to keep everyone in the know silent about his less-than-legal activities.
But his unholy behavior isn’t limited to alleged corruption. Much like Donald Trump, whom he has heavily endorsed, Falwell Jr. is that rare (but not rare enough) triple threat of icky public views, shady business practices, AND private sexual scandals.
Speaking of Trump, it was his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who first mentioned Falwell when spilling his guts earlier this year. Back in May, the fixer confessed to having helped with a cover-up involving some “racy” photographs for the Christian leader.
At the time Falwell responded:
“This report is not accurate. There are no compromising or embarrassing photos of me.”
Well, his advisers know him well enough to know what that meant.
As one told Politico:
“If you read how Jerry is framing his response, you can see he is being very selective.”
Allegedly, yes, there absolutely were photos — of Falwell’s wife, Becki Falwell, “in various states of undress.” The Miami Herald was apparently even able to confirm it. The story involves a shady real estate deal with a 21-year-old “pool boy” who supposedly got the pics…
But how could that happen? How could some guy get photos of his wife?
Oh, probably because Falwell SHOWED THEM TO EVERYONE — or so it’s claimed!
Yes, Liberty officials say the conservative Christian would show and/or text photos of his naked wife to all the men in his inner circle, including at least one employee.
One Liberty insider said Falwell is “very, very vocal” about his “sex life.” Per a source, in one car ride, “all he wanted to talk about was how he would nail his wife, how she couldn’t handle [his penis size], and stuff of that sort.”
Ew. Ew ew ew ew ew.
