Trouble is brewing in the gay-friendly Ivy League. With students set to arrive back for classes in a few weeks, Dartmouth College has been trying to keep their latest scandal as quiet as possible. And they’ve successfully managed to do so… until now.

Last month, it was announced on the college’s blog that James Tengatenga, pictured here, would lead the college’s Tucker Foundation. The foundation serves to “educate Dartmouth students for lives of purpose and ethical leadership, rooted in service, spirituality, and social justice.” Tengatenga will also be the college’s “moral spokesperson,” whatever the hell that is.

The only problem: Tengatenga is, or at least was, a major homophobe.
