Fundamentalist University President And Wife Accused Of Lavish Lifestyle At Donors' Expense

TULSA (AP) — Oral Roberts University president Richard Roberts has asked the school's board of regents for a leave of absence amid accusations of lavish spending at donors' expense and illegal involvement in a political campaign.

An Oct. 2 lawsuit filed by three former ORU professors says they were wrongfully dismissed and alleges the spending at donors' expense, including numerous home remodels and a senior trip to the Bahamas for one daughter on the ministry's dime.

It also accuses Roberts of illegal involvement in a local political campaign, which would violate the university's non-profit status. [...]

The amended complaint included details of an internal ministry report documenting Lindsay Roberts' contacts with underage males.

It claims she spent the night in the ORU guest house with an underage male "on nine separate occasions," among other allegations. The report was titled "Scandal Vulnerability Assessment" and was prepared by Stephanie Cantees, Richard Roberts' sister-in-law. In a statement, Lindsay said she lived her life in "a morally upright manner" and had never engaged in any sexual behavior with any man outside of her marriage as the accusations imply.
