Conservative activist Dinesh D'Souza resigned Thursday as president of The King's College, a small evangelical school based in Manhattan.
The move came following recent reports that the 51-year old D'Souza was engaged to a 29-year old woman, while still in the course of a divorce from his wife of 20 years, and that the two had shared a hotel room at a recent Christian conference.
I didn't write about D'Souza's affair when I reviewed his documentary the other day, because this story wasn't pertinent to the movie. But this news is very pertinent to D'Souza's standing as a conservative "thinker," and I expect to see him alienated by the right for a year or two now. Of course, he'll return (probably just in time for the next presidential election) with "God's forgiveness," ready to preach about the importance of family values. We've seen this play out a thousand times before.
