Mercer University students grill Trumps lawyer on anti-LGBTQ, anti-Muslim stances

MACON, GEORGIA — Students at Mercer University wore rainbow flags around their shoulders and sat in silent protest Wednesday, while Jay Sekulow, personal counsel to President Donald Trump and chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), delivered the school’s Founders’ Day address.

In the weeks since the historically Baptist school announced Sekulow’s speech, controversy arose among students, faculty, and alumni who opposed Sekulow’s history of anti-LGBTQ and bigoted statements and actions.

More than 600 students and alumni signed an online petition since the announcement asking the Mercer administration and student government to reconsider the decision, citing its “long and distinguished tradition of promoting human dignity, fostering inclusion, and celebrating differences,” and calling attention to Sekulow’s “long and well-documented history of homophobia, racism, nationalism and anti-Muslim bigotry.”

Newly Defanged, Top Consumer Protection Agency Drops Investigation of High-Cost Lender

In 2013, ProPublica published an investigation of the subprime lender World Finance. World was charging annual interest rates that could exceed 200 percent, often trapping customers in cycles of debt by enticing them to renew the loans over and over. In states where laws barred such high rates, the installment lender loaded many loans with nearly useless insurance products that bloated the cost. The company boasted over 800,000 customers, part of an installment loan industry that claimed to loan to millions.

The following year, World disclosed that it was under investigation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB, the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform bill, and under the leadership of Richard Cordray, the agency took action against credit card lenders, mortgage servicers, payday lenders and others for unfair practices against consumers.

But after Cordray left last November, President Donald Trump installed Office of Management and Budget head Mick Mulvaney as acting director. To say that Mulvaney has been a critic of the CFPB is a vast understatement. In a 2014 interview given when he was still a Republican congressman, Mulvaney said of the CFPB, “some of us would like to get rid of it” and called it “a joke ... in a sick, sad kind of way.”
