Paula White brags about her experience: "I’ve done this for 32 years" but then says about 2008 video: "It was a very difficult time in my life." In 2011 she and Benny Hinn "spent three nights in a five-star hotel Hinn booked under a false name." Experience should teach wisdom.

@elizabethjdias @jwpetersNYT Two corrections:
(1) The NHCLC is the personal operation of Samuel Rodriguez. There is no evidence it represents 40,000 congregations.
(2) The Senate investigation into Paula White was not "dropped." Rather financial abuse was exposed.
