posted on September 2, 2020

The Associated Press’s Sarah Rankin and Elana Schor report, “Liberty University is opening an independent investigation into Jerry Falwell Jr.’s tenure as president, a wide-ranging inquiry that will include financial, real estate and legal matters, the evangelical school’s board announced Monday.” They write, “He officially resigned on Tuesday, after a confusing day of back-and-forths about whether he would be leaving.” Falwell was already on leave, but his resignation came after a Reuters report in which a young man alleged he had an affair with Becki Falwell, and that “Jerry Falwell participated in some of the liaisons as a voyeur.”
