A report Sunday says the former board chairman of Ivy Tech Community College sent emails with political diatribes, sexist jokes and nude pictures of women to former state officials before college officials asked him to stop earlier this year.

The Indianapolis Star reported V. Bruce Walkup sent the emails to officials including Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder, Earl Goode, the chief of staff to former Gov. Mitch Daniels; and to Rob Carter Jr., former director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources who's now Ivy tech's security chief.

Ivy Tech officials say Snyder didn't open any of Walkup's emails.

The Star says Walkup's emails continued for at least six months before administrators asked Walkup to stop earlier this year. He's no longer Ivy Tech's chairman.

Walkup apologized for the emails.
