Bwog returned home to find the following announcement from Director of Media Relations Robert Hornsby in its inbox:
“Last month, Columbia promptly brought information received about David Charlow’s relationship with former preferred lender Student Loan Xpress to the Attorney General’s attention and suspended Mr. Charlow from any engagement in the affairs of the University. As of today, Mr. Charlow has now been dismissed from his employment at Columbia College.
We have been working cooperatively with the Attorney General’s office to provide documents and materials related to Mr. Charlow’s tenure as the head of financial aid for the undergraduate College and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. As these matters are now appropriately in the hands of the Attorney General, we cannot comment further on Mr. Charlow at this time.”
Charlow follows on the heels of the UTexas guy, and will add nicely to Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s trophy case. Spec has more here, and the New York Post (they are useful sometimes) has some serious dirt here. Our favorite quote:
“I want by its design to lead the students to [the] best decision in an idiot-proof way,” wrote Charlow to the CEO of Student Loan XPress, the company that earned him over $100,000 in stock sales.
Who’s the idiot now, David?
