LiberalsLeftists: your moral and intellectual superiors! — Columbia prof, Palin hater and HuffPo blogger charged with incest involving 24-year-old daughter."
Where's the LGM academic decency brigade! This is an emergency!
404 error at Epstein's Columbia University bio-page, but the Department's faculty information page is still available (Screencap here.)
Elie Mystal at Above the Law is totally grossed out, "Columbia Poly Sci Professor Accused of Diddling His Daughter."
And at Gather, "Columbia Professor David Epstein Busted Following Three-Year Relationship With Daughter":
In Ivy League incest news, Columbia University professor David Epstein was arrested today on charges of incest in the third degree after it was revealed he and his now 24-year old daughter had a "consensual" three year relationship.
According to gantdaily.com, Epstein was actually quite well-liked at Columbia, and had a fairly prestigious and well respected career. It's always the ones you least suspect, right?
Epstein had authored several books, written pieces for The Huffington Post, and had previously acted as a political analyst for CBS!
Epstein was set to teach two classes this semester at Columbia; "Scope and Methods," and "Research Topics and Game Theory" ....
Sources say that Epstein's incestual [sic] relationship with his daughter began after some serious "sexting," which is somehow almost creepier than actually committing the act.
Esptein has taken a leave of absence and faces four years in prison if convicted.
Added: Robert Stacy McCain has more: "Palin-Hating Columbia Professor, Huffington Post Blogger, Busted for Incest."
And now an Instalanche!
