Scathing Politico Exposé Rips Lid Off Jerry Falwell Jr.

From Politico’s exhaustive exposé of Jerry Falwell Jr:

In January, the Wall Street Journal reported that in the run-up to Trump’s presidential campaign, Michael Cohen hired John Gauger, a Liberty University employee who runs a private consulting firm, to manipulate online polls in Trump’s favor.

Not previously reported is the fact that, according to a half-dozen high-level Liberty University sources, when Gauger traveled to New York to collect payment from Cohen, he was joined by Falwell’s son Trey Falwell, a vice president at Liberty.

During that trip, Trey posted a now-deleted photo to Instagram of around $12,000 in cash spread on a hotel bed, raising questions about his knowledge of Gauger’s poll-rigging work. Trey did not respond to requests for comment.

And there’s also this:

Longtime Liberty officials close to Falwell told me the university president has shown or texted his male confidants—including at least one employee who worked for him at Liberty—photos of his wife in provocative and sexual poses.

At Liberty, Falwell is “very, very vocal” about his “sex life,” in the words of one Liberty official—a characterization multiple current and former university officials and employees interviewed for this story support. In a car ride about a decade ago with a senior university official who has since left Liberty, “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,” this former official recalled. Falwell did not respond to questions about this incident.

More than simply talking with employees about his wife in a sexual manner, on at least one occasion, Falwell shared a photo of his wife wearing what appeared to be a French maid costume, according to a longtime Liberty employee with firsthand knowledge of the image and the fallout that followed.

That’s just a taste. Hit the link for reams of financial self-dealing, alleged corruption, and photos of Falwell and his son carousing on the dance floor of a wild South Beach nightclub.

As Politico pointedly notes, coed dancing and alcohol use are expressly forbidden for Liberty University students. Falwell is laughably claiming the photos are fake.
