“Would we accept money from Jeffrey Epstein today? No,” [the college president] said, describing the former donor as a “monster” and “truly evil man.” “We had no idea, the public record had no indication, that he was anything more than an ordinary — if you could say such a thing — sex offender who had been convicted and went to jail.”
Mr. Epstein had been very publicly accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14.
“That is a humiliating experience to go back over and over and over,” [the college president] said, adding, “We’re completely at the mercy of the very wealthy.”
“He enjoyed humiliating and dangling prospects,” [the college president] said, adding, “He was sadistic. He absolutely strung me along.”
