“The journalists have obviously failed to capture my innate magnetism, humor, and charisma, and they all need to be fired from their newspapers right away” Alexei Sayle
Well, that didn’t take long. Looks like Falwell Jr.’s antics have finally gotten the attention of the Board of Trustees. In my last post, I took some time to outline Falwell’s history with racy photos.Jerry Falwell Jr’s Alleged History With Other Racy Photos Along With the Pool Boy Episode and the Alleged Hiring of THAT Micheal Cohen to Make It Go Away.
In the post I discussed:
- Racy photos
- His arm around his wife’s pregnant assistant seemed to be a bit too close to her breasts.
- Allegedly hiring the infamous Michael Cohen to get rid of racy photos in the past.
- The pool boy debacle
- That he seemed to be slurring his words in his radio interview
I suggested that thee students dress up like Falwell and the *babe* on the first day of classes.
He has just been placed on an indefinite leave of absence.
According to Raw Story in Liberty University tells Jerry Falwell Jr. to ‘take an indefinite leave of absence’
On Friday, the board of the University encouraged Falwell to step down entirely.
“The Executive Committee of Liberty University’s Board of Trustees, acting on behalf of the full Board, met today and requested that Jerry Falwell, Jr. take an indefinite leave of absence from his roles as President and Chancellor,” the statement said, in part, according to CNN’s Jim Acosta.
A Republican lawmaker, Mark Walter, claims that this is behavior that has been going for several years.
In my post, I suggested that there was a pattern of behavior by Falwell. Republican Rep. Mark Walker from North Carolina suggested he step down as well. Again from Raw Story: Republican suggests Jerry Falwell Jr. step down from Liberty University after sexy photo: ‘We can’t look the other way
But there’s a pattern of behavior not becoming to what the school’s code of conduct is. On the property itself, his brother Jonathan Falwell pastors one of the largest churches in the country, a church that his father Jerry Sr. founded. And I believe this behavior has become troubling and I believe, whether it’s a leave of absence or stepping down, I believe his behavior, the pattern of it, has warranted this. Even if you listen to his comments on the radio show, he apologized for embarrassing the young. But he didn’t apologize to the thousands of alumni, the students, faculty, and many others who hold Liberty University in high esteem.”
…this is a pattern that has been going on for the past two to three years.
Here is a video in which Walker is calling on Falwell to resign.
Lots to talk about.
