In brief: School investigates filmmaker D’Souza

From Wire Reports
 

NEW YORK – A conservative scholar behind a high-grossing documentary that condemns President Barack Obama is under investigation by the evangelical college he leads over a report he took a woman who is not his wife to an event on Christian values.

The King’s College board announced the review on Tuesday, the day the conservative Christian newsmagazine WORLD reported event organizers had confronted Dinesh D’Souza about sharing a hotel room with a woman he introduced as his fiancee. D’Souza filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie D’Souza, a few days after the conference.

Dinesh D’Souza, who became president of The King’s College in 2010, said he and his wife have been “living in a state of separation for two years.” He denied sharing the hotel room with the other woman.
