The ones who come out of this with any integrity at all are Dr. Moore and Greear, both of whom the hardcore "right" lambasted as "woke" because they wanted to do something about the problem. Seems many on the EC were asleep and the rest pretty corrupt. It sounds like maybe Ronnie Floyd wanted to do some things the right way but was in over his head.

LATEST LIBERTY 990 FILING.

Apparently the investigation has been done for about 6 months.

https://projects.propublica.org/nonprof ... 7900220211

23. Other Matters
Prompted by litigation, on August 31, 2020, the Executive Committee of the University’s Board of
Trustees engaged an external law firm to investigate matters dating back at least 14 years relating
to certain facets of the University’s operations during former President Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s
leadership. The external law firm subsequently engaged a public accounting firm to assist with the
investigation. Critical areas of the investigation include potential misuse of the University’s assets,
certain construction contracts and/or real estate transactions, the engagement of certain third
parties, and various related party transactions. As of the date of this report, the investigation team
has conducted over 100 interviews of both current and former University personnel and related
parties and has also reviewed an extensive amount of documentation obtained from University
management and associated third parties. The investigation team has incurred substantial hours in
its efforts to complete these procedures, some of which are still on going. The current expected
completion of the investigation is anticipated for December 2021.
Based upon the results of the investigation to date, there may be adjustments not only to certain
disclosures but also to certain balances and/or classifications presented on the accompanying
consolidated financial statements. To date, management has not identified any matters that would
have a quantitatively material impact on the consolidated financial statements before or after
June 30, 2018. The consolidated financial statements of the University currently do not reflect an
accrual or disclosure of the adverse outcome, if any, that may result from this investigation.


On September 30, 2021, the University received notice of an Internal Revenue Service examination
for fiscal year 2019. Management does not believe this examination will result in material liabilities
or adjustments to the financial statements

It seems that everybody wants to blame political parties for the mess that we're in in the way of manufacturing but you only have to look as far as your retirement accounts to see why we're in that mess. Business is amoral, and when boards demand profits the business will find them even if that means downsizing or moving overseas. I always chuckle when people blast Walmart yet look at their quarterly investment statements and crow about how well they are performing. Part of the reason is there's a bunch of companies like Walmart in their portfolio. Would it be correct to assume that you have divested yourself of any kind of financial involvement with companies that have off-shored jobs?

Truth is often crap. Alex Jones was right !!! - ( still hate saying it ). 90 % of “smart” people have never heard of ESG or WEF or have a clue about the inner workings of WHO, IMF, have never read The Creature From Jekyl Island, and think Bill Gates is a charitable saint. People in Sri Lanka are finding out, as well as the Dutch, Canadians, Aussies, New Zealand and unfortunately, not nearly enough Americans - we are to busy arguing over BLM, Definition of woman and Roe and think the next election will “fix” everything. Me/thinks football ticket prices will be pretty far down the list of worries in a few weeks...

WHO is bad news. A friend from Ethiopia warned me as soon as Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was elected to head it.

AA was a good policy. After 60 years, hopefully it has accomplished most its goals. I'm not sure ESG is market-driven? The green agenda is more about shifting power and money from one political group to another, and quickly.

Hope this is true. Something that should have taken 90 days is finally occurring after 2 years+ of foot-dragging. I hope the new President is smart enough to ask for the entire Boreds resignations, as a prerequisite for taking the job. He/she can then re-hire who they want.
BTW, Lee is an absolute whack-job. Wouldn't take what he says as any kind of truth at all.

Word coming from the DOE investigation indicates they have found an astounding number of Clery Act/Title IX violations and are going to hammer the school.

This might be why LU is hiring an Exec Director for Clery compliance.

This investigation is the result of bitter and disgruntled ex-employees breaking their NDAs. These individuals have no shame.

Once we finish this coaching search maybe we can get on with the search for a new President. It is time to move on from the scandals of the past.

Two completely different searches. The AD is doing the coaching search and he will do it quickly. No knows who is doing the President's search, and it's certainly not being done quickly. I have my doubts as to whether or not search has actually started.
