Jesse Prince: A Liar for Hire
Jesse Prince, expelled more than 20 years ago, was a perfect source for Lawrence Wright’s discredited book “Going Clear,” which Alex Gibney based his film on. Prince’s blatant dishonesty regarding the Church and its ecclesiastical leader has been condemned by two judges, one of whom once stated that Prince “would tell you under oath that he wouldn’t care if he was under oath or not, he’d lie … I’m just quite flabbergasted. I don’t know that any court has ever seen the likes of him.” If he will lie under oath, his lies know no limits. Factor in a nasty past of incest and sexual deviancy he admitted to before joining the Church. Prince is someone who called himself a “normal American boy.” His new normal doesn’t match anyone else’s definition.
