MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito resigns after New Yorker Epstein exposé – Business Insider

MIT Media Lab Director Joi Ito announced his resignation on Saturday in an email to MIT’s provost and president that he forwarded to The New York Times.
Late Friday, The New Yorker published an exposé containing emails sent between Ito and the late financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was a convicted sex offender and faced charges of sex trafficking of minors before committing suicide in jail in August.
Ito worked with other directors and staff at the MIT Media Lab to quietly receive large anonymous donations from Epstein after he was convicted of soliciting underage girls for prostitution.
