Jerry-Junior has un-resigned!
(CNN)Embattled evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. agreed to resign as Liberty University’s president Monday but withdrew his resignation when media reports about the decision emerged, the university said in a statement Monday night…
After asking Falwell to take an indefinite leave on August 7, “additional matters came to light that made it clear that it would not be in the best interest of the University for him to return from leave and serve as President,” according to a statement from the university.
“Falwell responded by agreeing to resign immediately as President of Liberty University today but then instructed his attorneys to not tender the letter for immediate resignation,” according to the statement. Falwell Jr. told Virginia Business Monday that reports that he was resigning were “completely false.”
Chance the Gardener, er, Jerry Junior is apparently upset that reports that claimed he liked to watch:
However, a spokesperson for both Falwells said the claim that Jerry observed the two having sex was untrue and pointed to a specific line in his statement where Falwell said: “Becki had an inappropriate personal relationship with this person, something in which I was not involved.”
“Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to.” – Bacardi Lifetime Achievement Winner, Peggy Noonan, Wall St. Journal, April 2000.
Look for Prznint Stupid’s stupidest lawyer and well-know fixer Michael Cohen to make a guest appearance in this story. You may recall that he’s already said that he helped the Falwells obtain some pictures of Becki from a blackmailer; but what he has never said is how, or how they were used. Remember, when the world was surprised that Falwell suddenly endorsed Lord Damp Nut? Methinks that those pictures played a role.

Coincidentally, Cohen’s book is publishing soon, but the betting windows are open now. Get yer Quatloos out!
