Official says Falwell leaving Liberty; Falwell says he's not
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A senior Liberty University official says Jerry Falwell Jr. has resigned from his leadership post at the evangelical Virginia college.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because he was not authorized to discuss the resignation.
But Falwell said in an interview with a local news outlet that he has not agreed to leave permanently.
The confusion erupted amid allegations about Falwell's wife's sexual encounters with a much younger business partner.
