The fact that there is a pool boy named Giancarlo involved in this story is just :chef's kiss: 2020, you are a weird old thing, but you sure as hell know how to keep people entertained. 

The pool boy confronts Becki, and Jerry watches from the corner.

Jerry Falwell Jr. has been way out of line for years. Am I the only one who is  angry that, out of  ALL the HORRID things he's said  and done, it's a stupid picture that gets him to step down? Like, h

@gustava, Thanks for this link.  Perfect subtitle:  Deposed university president secured backing by ousting critics and hiring the family members and businesses of loyalists.    This is the classic move authoritarians use to tighten their grip on power -- Trump, for example, is Exhibit A. 

I know a lot of ink has been spilled on this scandal, but, damn does this Salon piece hang the laundry out to dry.

Thanks....and it's Politico....  And yes, I think he completely lost any semblance of self control when he hooked his wagon to Donito Trumpolini.

Wow.

I read the entire piece, start to finish. I find myself unable to even know how to discuss, other than repeat what has already been said. So I will just say --

Not much Jesus in any of that. (understatement, to be sure)

"Trump First Republican to Lose Virginia City Where Liberty University is Located Since 1948"

What the Gosh Darned Actual F**k.   I mean, what the HECK?!!!!  

Population of Lynchburg, VA is about 80,000 and 28% are black. They weren't voting for Trump.

I suspect that very, very few Liberty Univ. people decided to hold their noses and vote Biden. 

So, maybe some students and the rest of the sane townspeople?  Whichever, it's a stunning upset.

I actually suspect quite a few faculty and local students voted Biden - there's been indications that the faculty are more liberal than the official stance, and suspect that Falwell's endorsing Trump did nothing to endear Trump to them.

The latest on Jerry and Becki 

Quote

Jerry Falwell Jr., recently resigned president of Liberty University, had allegedly ranked students with his wife, Becki Falwell, that they’d see on campus and ranked the one whom they most wanted to have sex with.The scandal broke when a former student of the university told Politico that “[Becki] and Jerry would eye people down on campus. She didn’t go into specifics, but said, ‘Oh, me and Jerry play games all the time, like ‘Would you rather?’ with people on campus.’ I’ll never forget that.

Wouldn’t surprise me if he and the Fuckopotomus spent time together ogling students at Liberty. Predators of a feather after all....

I’m calling it now, Jerry is going to shift blame onto Becki one two many times and she’s going to burn the house down. All because he wouldn’t take his $10M and stfu.

Liberty may have made a problem for itself thanks to Jerry Jr's pre-election antics and his creation (with Charlie Kirk) of the Fallkirk Centre. The FC consistently and publicly advocated for the Orange-utan's re-election and it's partisanship was inappropriate.

TL;DR Falkirk Center is a political entity corruptly masquerading as a non-profit.  Those who donate to it get to deduct the donation from their taxes.  Half of the board of the Falkirk Center is fine with this arrangement; the other half isn't.

Jerry's on Parler, because of course he is,  to "go on record" standing on the solid Rock, I'm guessing while watching his wife boink studly young men?  

Also, he's plagiarized the text of that tweet.

Gag. Puke.

Nobody needs to bother to even ask (never mind force) him to "recant" his faith. He took care of that all on his own a long time ago. Along with completely ignoring the solid Rock.

As a professing Christian, that statement makes me furious.

TOTALLY here for this. Not only is there a good chance that LU will prevail, but this is also a matter of assholes getting in a fight with each other! Let them spend their ill-gotten gains on trying to take each other down.

Bonus: hoping for a shit-ton of dirt to come out during discovery unless both sides come to a settlement with an NDA.

Excellent point.  I'm here for the metaphorical screaming and hair pulling! 

Wonder what prompted this?  You'd think Liberty would want the scandal to die down -- it's got to have devastated their bottom line.  That could be the underlying issue, though -- they are desperate to recoup some money to keep the whole shit-eroo afloat. 

Speaking of floating, a Tweep pointed out that SOMEBODY MAY HAVE TO SELL A YACHT!

In addition to the original pool boy at least one other erstwhile business partner, Ben Crosswhite, seems to have benefited from highly questionable deals that involved LUʻs money & real estate. My guess would be that LU has a fiduciary duty to resolve these matters somehow -- ideally, by recovering the resources Jerry Jr is alleged to have given to these guys and maybe others. There is no indication that LU has already tried to recover their assets but Iʻd imagine that Jerry Jr would NOT be receptive to LU asking him kindly to do the right thing.

Good point and I suspect LU began hardcore forensic accounting post Watchgate, and untangled all those questionable deals. 

Now I'm curious if any of Jr.'s actions were found to be criminal, or whatever you call white collar crime perpetrated by powerful Evangelicals.

Ahhh, there are two parts to the lawsuit: 

Quote

It wants Falwell to pay $10 million in compensatory damages, which it said can be tripled under Virginia law, plus punitive and other damages. Liberty also wants him to return phones, computers and other property belonging to the school.  

Liberty is PISSED.

Does anyone know the status of the Fallwell nepotism hires?  There were at least several Falwell family members making bank at LU.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
