Jerry Falwell Jr. resigns as Liberty University president after accusations that he participated in a partner’s affair with his wife

Falwell’s fate appears to have been sealed after a former hotel pool attendant-turned-business partner, Giancarlo Granda, 29, told Reuters in an interview published Monday that he carried on an affair with Falwell’s wife, Becki, beginning in 2012, when he was 20, and lasting until 2018. Granda told Reuters that Falwell would watch as he had sex with his wife, and believes the couple preyed upon him.

Falwell’s problems mounted in recent months when he publicly apologized for a tweet showing a person in blackface and posted a photo to his Instagram account in which his shirt was up and he was holding a glass of dark liquid. The awkward image also showed him standing next to a woman, and his pants appeared to be unzipped.
