Jerry Falwell Jr. claims he is the victim of an “attempted coup.”

Yeah, they are smearing him with the truth apparently. 

Courtesy of the AP:

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said Tuesday that he is asking the FBI to investigate what he called a “criminal” smear campaign orchestrated against him by several disgruntled former board members and employees.

Falwell told The Associated Press he has evidence that the group improperly shared emails belonging to the university with reporters in an attempt to discredit him. He said the “attempted coup” was partially motivated by his ardent backing of President Donald Trump.

His allegations come after the publication of a story in Politico Magazine on Monday that alleged Falwell “presides over a culture of self-dealing” at Liberty that has improperly benefited him and his family. The story cited unnamed sources described as current and former officials or Falwell associates.

“I’m not going to dignify the lies that were reported yesterday with a response, but I am going to the authorities and I am going to civil court,” Falwell said, referring to the reporter as a “little boy.”

“I’m not going to dignify the lies” is universally understood to translate into “Yeah I did but you have to prove it.” 

Falwell’s main argument is that the emails that went back and forth between himself and his employees were the property of Liberty University and that sharing them with journalists was against the law. 

However that is not accurate. 

Cybercrime expert Nick Akerman said Falwell’s assertion of a criminal conspiracy is “totally insane.” Akerman said the ex-board members and employees can share emails with reporters as long as they had authorized access to them and didn’t hack into someone else’s account. He said trade secrets are also protected under the law, but Liberty wouldn’t be able to make a case there either.

“I don’t think any law enforcement agency is going to be interested in this one,” said Akerman, a partner at Dorsey & Whitney and former federal prosecutor.

Looks like Junior is shit out of luck.

Just reading between the lines it sounds to me as if everything that Politico reported about Falwell’s criminal enterprise and his fondness for talking about his penis was spot on and that there is likely a whole lot more that he is worried will come out later. 

I wait impatiently for that.

    And then there’s this:

    “But at least one of Falwell’s denials is already falling apart. He denied being on the Miami party scene at the Wall club in 2014.”

      “Falwell, Jr. is not only America’s Second Worst Christian, he’s also that dude who’s the oldest person in the club.”

      “Liberty University is notoriously strict about alcohol consumption & students can receive demerits for co-ed dancing…”

    I think he might regret calling in the FBI, they will uncover all his other criminal activities. Besides I thought his good buddy donald trump told us the FBI didn’t know what they were doing, guess that only applies when you don’t want them looking for the truth.

    These guys have gotten away with so much over the years. It does my heart good to see them getting busted for their sleazy, hypocritical behavior.

      Wonder how much they have scammed by not paying taxes, or is the “university” tax exempt?

    In October of 2017, journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey worked to expose Hollywood heavyweight producer Harvey Weinstein, sending shockwaves around the world and earning them a Pulitzer Prize. Their new book “She Said” details the painstaking work that went into their reporting, and just what it took to break such a difficult story.

      “Hollywood’s silence about Harvey Weinstein had held until that moment. People like Rose McGowan, for instance, had tweeted about her allegations but she hadn’t named him. And so when Ashley said she was willing to go on the record, it felt like finally, finally these decades of silence are going to end. And I think for us, it was the first time I thought this story is going to work.”

      Former BBC China Editor Carrie Gracie speaks to Christiane about her personal battle for equal pay and how to fight for greater equality in the workplace.
      “BBC journalist Carrie Gracie took her employer to task when she discovered that as their China Editor working in Beijing, she was earning half what her equivalent male colleagues were being paid. Her bold fight opened up conversations about women’s value in the workplace, and Gracie joins Christiane in London to discuss her personal story and how women in the workplace can stand up for equal pay.”

    pat roberson told men they can cheat on their wifes if she is ugly. never said that to a woman. he also ask for socail security checks. that woman,with the pink hair, on late night on the christian broadcase network, asked women for their last “ittiy-bitty” savings, guess pink hair is expensive. i hate those people. not Christian-money grubbing.
