College chancellor resigns after scandalous photos
The chancellor of a Northern Virginia for-profit college recently raided by federal immigration authorities has resigned, after pictures of him posted on an S & M website were unearthed by thesmokinggun.com and picked up by The Daily Mail.
"I have submitted my resignation as chancellor of UNVA to the board, effective today," David Lee wrote in a letter dated August 19. "Discussions of my personal life have become a distraction for students and friends of UNVA at a time when we need to focus on much more significant issues."
Habib Khan will replace Lee and serve as acting Chancellor.
The University of Northern Virginia had already made headlines last month after immigration authorities seized computers and documents from the school, prompting dozens of students to email the Times expressing fear and shock over the ordeal.
According to the Smoking Gun, Lee, 64, and his girlfriend posted an ad on collarme.com, which touts itself as "the largest BDSM Community on the Planet."
The ad stated an interest in: "attractive submissive women who wish to be a part of our poly family. Ideally you will consider yourself a slave or a sub with slave tendencies. We provide a safe, sane home with a good balance of love and discipline."
The account also describes the couple's profile that includes a variety of photos, including one that shows "Lee's immaculate dungeon with its polished wood floors and bondage racks."
Immigration and Customs Enforcement's website instructs students that they may continue to attend classes at UNVA or transfer to another Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-approved institution.
It's unclear what exactly prompted the investigation, but some are speculating that the university, a for-profit institution that caters to Indian students, sought to enroll more foreigners than allowed by law.
ICE spokeswoman Cori Bassett, however, said that there is no specific number of I-20s, precursors to student visas, a school can issue, the school is only under review and could be cleared of wrongdoing, and ICE cannot force the school to close.
