This week, after an investigation that began in April, Linda Katehi resigned from her job as Chancellor at UC Davis. You may remember her from refusing to step down after the pepper spray incident in 2011, asserting that "I really feel confident at this point that the university needs me." Or from spending $175,000 and an unknown number of staff work-hours trying to erase the incident from the internet, which went about as well as you might expect: it turns out it was more like $407,000. She's been on paid leave since April, and will go on one year of leave, drawing her full salary of $424,360, and after this plans to make a transition to the engineering school as a tenured professor.
