Christian college weighs its president's extra-marital relationship

NEW YORK (AP) — An evangelical college based in New York's Empire State Building is investigating its prominent president's extra-marital relationship.

World Magazine reports that the president of The King's College, author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, spoke last month at a Christian conference in Spartanburg, S.C., where he shared a hotel room with a woman he introduced as his fiancée.

World reports that D'Souza didn't file for divorce from his wife of 20 years until the following week. The magazine's vice president, Warren Cole Smith, says D'Souza sent him a text Monday saying he had "decided to suspend the engagement."

The King's College says in a statement that its trustees will review the situation at their meeting this week. The statement says they expect all of the school's leaders to "model Christian character and integrity in their public and private lives."

D'Souza wrote, directed and stars in the documentary film "2016: Obama's America."
