The Abdul Rao controversy continues at the University of South Florida. A videotape caught Rao, senior associate vice president of research, taking a bike that belonged to a graduate student from a university building. Rao maintained that he did nothing wrong, and was trying to loan the bike to a homeless friend. In exchange for $50,000, Rao quit his job. Now, Rao wants to rescind his resignation. The St. Petersburg Times reported that he has sent university officials an e-mail saying that his resignation was rushed, and that he has the right to reconsider. The university disagrees, and both sides are talking to lawyers.
