[snip] The decision was “largely mutual,” Mr. Kerrey continued. “It’s not my decision alone, but I’m completely confident it’s the right decision.”
Mr. Kerrey, a former Nebraska senator and governor, said his political ties and connections to big donors continued to be an asset to the university. Even so, some faculty members questioned whether it was appropriate to pay Mr. Kerrey $350,000 a year when he was occupied with a failed campaign to return to the U.S. Senate and other professional endeavors.
In 2010, Mr. Kerrey earned $3-million from the New School, making him the nation’s highest-paid private-college president that year, which is the most recent year for which tax forms are available.
The $3-million figure included a $1.2-million retention bonus that New School trustees provided to ensure a smooth transition to Mr. Kerrey’s successor, David E. Van Zandt. [/snip]
Rich Commies, wtf.
