NEW YORK (AP) - A conservative scholar behind a high-grossing film that condemns President Barack Obama says he resigned as president of an evangelical college in New York so it can move forward.
Dinesh D'Souza posted the statement on his website after the board of The King's College announced his resignation Thursday.
The evangelical magazine WORLD reported he was engaged to one woman while still married to another. He says leaving the college will allow him to address "personal matters."
D'Souza directed the political documentary "2016: Obama's America." He says he and his wife have been separated since 2010.
D'Souza took his fiancee to a Christian values conference last month in South Carolina. Organizers confronted him after concluding he shared a hotel room there with his fiancée. He insists they stayed in separate rooms.
