Uh oh! It looks like we have another Jim and Tammy Faye Baker for 2012. The televangelists met with disaster when they were caught up in a huge sex and money scandal that bilked members out of $158 million. The new couple is accused of only bilking $50 million and there was no sex…well a little sex…and some of it homosexual. They’re not as bad, right?
That’s probably the thinking of Janice and Paul Crouch Sr., as allegations of a lavish lifestyle that bilked members out of $50 million are lodged against the founders of Trinity Broadcasting Network. The christian non-profit’s briefly appointed chief finance director, Brittany Koper, 26, who is also their granddaughter, blew the whistle last July.
Her report details items that the couple purchased out of the non-profit’s “charitable assets” that include: $50 million jet, 13 mansions and a $100,000-mobile home for Mrs Crouch’s dogs. Sounds like a little more than $50 million doesn’t it? The couple has also been accused by the granddaughter’s uncle-in-law, Joseph McVeigh, in his lawsuit, that the network used their collections for “side-by-side mansions in Florida, as well as in Texas, Tennessee and California.”
In addition to the lawsuits, Paul Crouch Sr. has been in trouble with the FCC and accused of a homosexual affair. Check out the sordid details in the UK’s Daily.
