Well it looks like all of this ill-will has caught up to Mcdonnell and now he not only faces jail time, he’s also lost his chance to teach at one of VA’s most famous bastions of anti-gay rhetoric, Liberty University.
Bob was offered the gig at the late Jerry Falwell’s homegrown college after he left office this year. At the time, the college called McDonnell a ‘long time friend’ and said he would ”contribute to Liberty’s world-class academic programs and to train students to make a significant positive impact at every level of government.”
Sadly ‘having a sham marriage while treating others like second-class citizens’ was not featured in the April press release.
Dr. Shawn Atkins, president of Liberty’s Helms school for Government, was particularly excited to see the former governor in the schools class room’s.
“The Helms School is proud to welcome Governor McDonnell, who has a proven record in public policy and conservative activism, and who shares in the biblical principles and servant leadership that are so important to Liberty University.”
But it appears Liberty has rolled up the welcome mat and has no plans to have Mcdonnell back this year – via WSET:
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Junior says former Governor Bob McDonnell had not been scheduled to return to campus as a distinguished visiting professor for the Fall semester.
Falwell tells ABC 13 that McDonnell was only scheduled during the Spring. He says that decision was made in the summer and McDonnell is not scheduled to come back at this time moving forward.
While Mcdonnell might not get the chance to teach this session, he will get the chance to spend some time behind bars – as much as 20 years for each of the 11 charges, though no one is sure how much time yet.
