The Rev. Jerry Falwell, remaining firmly in command of the scandal-racked PTL religious empire, Tuesday cut off the $1.6 million in salaries for the ministry's fallen leaders, Jim and Tammy Bakker, and removed the Rev. Richard Dortch, Bakker's right-hand man, from all PTL leadership. At the same time, Falwell acknowledged that PTL money--not Bakker's personal funds--had been used to hush a sexual tryst that Bakker has admitted.
