From FoxNews:

University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman announced her resignation Monday amid a football recruiting scandal and an uproar over a professor who compared Sept. 11 victims to a notorious Nazi.

Hoffman said the University of Colorado needs a fresh start after the many controversies that have rattled the school, especially a football scandal that produced allegations of rapes, strip-club visits and alcohol-fueled sex parties for recruits.

"It appears to me it is in the university's best interest that I remove the issue of my future from the debate so that nothing inhibits CU's ability to successfully create the bright future it so deserves," Hoffman wrote in her resignation letter.

Just cut and run, eh. Then again, it's probably good that she does given her weak grasp of reality.

Hoffman said last week that [Ward] Churchill would not be fired if the review turns up only inflammatory comments, not misconduct. She also said she feared a "new McCarthyism" that endangers academic freedom

She, for some reason, isn't aware that the “ethics” teacher, Churchill,  has also been accused of forging painting and selling them -- something most people would consider misconduct. She also doesn't seem to have a problem with firing CU history professor Phil Mitchell for his comments. But then Phil is a Conservative Christian, isn't he.
