Now it’s Carnegie Mellon’s turn to do what UD calls TRUSTEE-DELETE.

Yeshiva University is the undisputed T-D standard, having – during the wee hours after two of their trustees, Bernie Madoff and Ezra Merkin, started attracting global attention – simply gone in and without any public comment deleted from Yeshiva’s website all mentions of their names.

Faced with a narco-dollar trafficker on their BOT, Carnegie-Mellon has behaved better than panicky, secretive YU.

Ken Walters, a spokesman for the Pittsburgh university, confirmed that [Marco Antonio] Delgado was a trustee from 2006 through mid-2012.

‘I wish it was someone else,’ he said.

They’ve trustee-deleted, but they’ve also made themselves available for public statements of regret.

Delgado “gave the school $250,000 to establish the Marco Delgado Fellowship for the Advancement of Hispanics in Public Policy and Management.” They’re going to have to decide what to do about that.

Universities, UD has noted on this blog, are reputation-launderers. It’s not surprising that a money-launderer would be attracted to them.
