(Christianity Today) – Dinesh D’Souza has resigned as the president of The King’s College (TKC), the Manhattan school’s board of trustees announced Thursday.

The decision comes after World magazine reported Tuesday that D’Souza was engaged to Denise Odie Joseph II while still legally married to his wife of 20 years, Dixie, and that the couple had allegedly checked into a hotel room together during a Christian conference last month.

“The Board of Trustees of The King’s College in New York City has accepted the resignation of its president, Dinesh D’Souza, effective immediately,” the board’s statement said. Board chairman Andy Mills will be appointed as interim president.
