New York Times:
While attending a conference last month, the president of the King’s College was spotted in the company of a woman other than his wife. At a typical institution of higher learning, a sighting like that might not have turned into a major controversy.
But the King’s College is not a typical institution of higher learning. It is a tiny Christian college based in a downtown Manhattan office building, whose mission statement articulates a “commitment to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview.”
Its president was Dinesh D’Souza, better known as the outspoken conservative commentator behind the caustic documentary “2016: Obama’s America.” And the ensuing scandal has cost him his job.
The King’s College announced Mr. D’Souza’s resignation on Thursday, two days after World Magazine, a Christian-oriented publication, reported that he had checked into a Comfort Suites in South Carolina in September with a woman he introduced as his fiancée, despite the fact that he was already married. The magazine reported that he filed for divorce the same day its reporter called to ask about the situation.
I don't usually take a great deal of joy at the misery of others, but this is definitely an exception. This D'Souza guy is a REAL douchebag show has spread ton of outrageous lies about the President, not only in his ridiculous film, but also on Fox News, Right Wing radio, and even on Real Time with Bill Maher.
I actually just heard another advertisement for his nasty little movie on Rush Limbaugh the other day. (Not only that but the piece of obvious propaganda has been playing in MY favorite theater here in Anchorage for the past few months.) Gee I wonder how those assholes on the Right Wing will spin THIS story?
This might be my favorite quote from D'Souza the article: “I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced."
Yeah, darn those Christians for keeping the fact that they frown on dating while still married a secret.
And if all of THAT was not enough to make this your favorite Right Wing hypocritical fact of the day, there is also this from our friends at Gawker:
Another layer of intrigue has been revealed in the saga of the downfall of conservative academic and rising Evangelical star Dinesh D'Souza, who resigned from his perch atop King's College today after it was revealed that he had a fiancee while also having a wife. Right Wing Watch reports that his mistress/fiancée, Denise Odie Joseph II, was also married, and said in April that she was going to vote for Mitt Romney, "because [her] husband told her to."
You know people are always saying, "you can't make this stuff up." But this time, you REALLY "can't make this stuff up!"
