California lawmakers seek university chancellor’s resignation

A California lawmaker on Thursday joined at least three of his colleagues in seeking the resignation of University of California, Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi a day after reports surfaced that the school spent $175,000 to quash negative Internet posts. Democratic Assemblyman Mike Gatto, whose district is in the Los Angeles area, cited the image campaign and a recent controversy over Katehi’s acceptance of paid seats on the boards of a for-profit education group and a textbook company.
