Jerry Falwell, Jr., may have resigned from Liberty University, but he reportedly hasn’t left. At least, that’s what a letter from Liberty General Counsel David M. Corry to key staff members indicates.
In the letter, Corry states that one news reporter said that Falwell claimed to be in “constant communication with University leadership and is assisting in running the University.” Corry adds that “various staff members” have been contacted by Falwell and “some of these calls have been uncomfortable.”
“This impression is not well received by our supporters who do not want Mr. Falwell to be running Liberty University behind the scenes,” Corry states.
He then informs staff that all advice or information needed by Liberty from Falwell must come through Interim President Jerry Prevo. Corry also instructs staff not to provide information about the university to Falwell, nor to take “direction or orders about the University from Falwell” nor to perform “tasks” or “favors” for Falwell.
Falwell resigned from the school last week amid scandal concerning an alleged sexual relationship his wife and Jerry Falwell had with a young pool attendant.
I reached out to Falwell for comment about the letter, but he did not respond by the time of publication.
