Jerry Falwell’s Aides Break Their Silence

posted on September 18, 2019

For Politico Magazine, Brandon Ambrosino reports on discontent at Liberty University under the direction of Jerry Falwell Jr., the staunch Trump supporter and son of the school’s late founder. “We’re not a school; we’re a real estate hedge fund,” an official said. “We’re not educating; we’re buying real estate every year and taking students’ money to do it.” Ambrosino also uncovered a photograph of Falwell at a Miami nightclub; Falwell had denied its existence in a statement. Ambrosino writes, “According to several people with direct knowledge of the situation, Falwell—the president of a conservative Christian college that frowns upon co-ed dancing (Liberty students can receive demerits if seen doing it) and prohibits alcohol use (for which students can be expelled)—was angry that photos of him clubbing made it up online.”
