    Who is a fringe figure? What does it mean?

    I have to paraphrase this fragment from the article:
    A respected party leader should give a swift, symbolic kick in the rump to a fringe figure who epitomizes the intolerance of the religious right—perhaps Jerry Falwell Jr., whose "Liberty" University recently booted its beyond-the-pale campus Democratic Club.

    ... and I have no idea who this fringe figure is. Please help me.

    A person who is on the edge of something, in this case Politics.
