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

Ahhh, there are two parts to the lawsuit: 

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. 

Trey also got fired this week.

 

 

it has been glorious.

The departure comes months after Falwell Jr. resigned as president of the school in the wake of controversial posts on social media and allegations he and his wife, Becki Falwell, had a years-long sexual relationship with a business associateallegations the former president has disputed.

Does this seem like an extremely sanitized, might I say, wholesome version?  But it is, after all, the Religious News Service. 

In the meantime, Jerry Jr's brother, who has been the head pastor at Thomas Road Baptist, will become the LU campus pastor, so there's still major family influence in the upper echelons.  The guy he replaces is  "senior vice president for spiritual development and campus pastor" so I assume Jonathan will be the same.  

Some numbers from Inside Higher Ed: Trey Falwell No Longer Liberty VP

Quote

Trey Falwell’s compensation totaled $234,310 in the fiscal year ending in June 2019, according to Liberty’s most recently available federal tax filing. Trey Falwell’s wife, Sarah, was listed as receiving $72,211 in compensation. Trey’s brother Wesley was listed as receiving $78,489 in compensation, and Wesley’s wife, Laura, was listed as receiving $59,193 in compensation. Falwell family members were also involved in operating companies that contract with Liberty.

Oh, and Jerry Jr. is back to hanging out on campus, going to a lacrosse game and tweeting about it. 

Admin at LU with two brain cells to rub together should get a restraining order to keep him off campus, especially after it was reported that Jerry Jr. and Becki liked to ogle students. 

That he is there will not be lost on the students who found his louche behavior repellent (not to mention hypocritical), while they are held to strict moral guidelines with serious consequences for any lapse.

There’s a safeguarding issue right there and a possible lawsuit on the way in LUs direction should something else untoward happen there in future.

Good point and I suspect LU began hardcore forensic accounting post Watchgate, and untangled all those questionable deals. ... or whatever you call white collar crime perpetrated by powerful Evangelicals.

Sin. (seriously)

I know we're consumed by the Josh Duggar arrest for child porn, but Holy Zipper, Jerry Jr. is off the rails out of control. 

Save71 @save71L updated the original tweet: Some new details about last night’s event from one of its hosts: the event was a comedy show, not a party. Multiple families were present. According to others at the event, Falwell appeared visibly intoxicated, but he didn’t get the drinks from the party.

The video is embedded in this tweet:

Is he trying to piss off TPTB at Liberty or trying to get a whole bunch of the students booted?

I'm suspecting untreated alcoholism or he's self-medicating another problem with alcohol. He's totally unhinged and nobody seems capable of or inclined to rein him in.

He's operating in the gray zone -- not doing anything illegal and will continue to lurch along unless there's a  successful family intervention or he engages law enforcement through a car accident/DUI or domestic violence episode. 

Liberty U needs to block him from LU properties STAT, if they haven't done it already.

Why not both? 

To be honest I suspect the former mostly.

Falwell Extends, Rescinds Invitation To Hold The ‘Real’ Liberty Graduation Party At His Farm

Isn't there anyone in his family who can convince Jerry that it is time to find a nice relaxing place to dry out and start his "restoration?"

Apparently not.  He desperately needs an intervention, but who knows how far gone Becki and the kids are; they may not be in a position to put it all together.

You'd think his True Christian™️ brother, Pastor Jonathan Falwell, would step in, but I guess not. 

So much for being his brother's keeper.
