Anyone see this? In 2007, Spanier lobbied for and got an exemption for Penn State to be exempt from the right to know laws in Pennsylvania. ALL other state-related agencies (other than universities) are subject to it, but not Penn State...me thinks something was up with his specific lobbying? Did he know much more at that time?
As for Sandusky, that creep needs to be laying low. Its bad enough he lives next to a elementary school, but apparently he's telling people he's going to beat the rap? He better hope for his sake he doesn't get thrown into general population when he gets to the big house.
Nearly two full weeks after the Penn State sex abuse story hit the mainstream media, the scope of the scandal continues to grow. And it's growing not only in terms of number of victims, but in potential duration. The Patriot-News is reporting that the timeline of alleged abuse, which originally went back to the 1990s, may go back much farther than that.
. . . Thursday morning brought another startling story from the paper. After watching former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky profess his innocence in a televised interview with NBC's Bob Costas, "several potential victims" contacted lawyers to tell their alleged stories of abuse.
And one of them, the Patriot-News reports, claims the abuse dates back to the 1970s, when Sandusky founded his Second Mile charity in Pennsylvania.
Just wait til we find out the charity has been a front for this all along...just wait.
Syracuse, your turn is next it seems.
It doesn't have as much going for it as the Penn State scandal does as far as evidence, but if it's true at all then they're going to have to clean house as well.
Wow, Boeheim has flat out said the accuser is lying. Interesting.
Well, if 4 witnesses would not corroborate a molestation allegation against your good friend, you'd be screaming liar from the rooftops too...
I'm officially worn out with this crap. I don't want to see it, hear it, talk about it, or anything anymore. There is enough depressing **** in the world.
If any of these scandals get more real victims to come forward and let healing start it is a good thing. We can't let people in positions of power and trust keep perpetrating these horrible crimes. Sounds like too many times this stuff has been swept under the rug or had a blind eye turned to it.
To add to the surreal turns: Joe Paterno has lung cancer.
A good sports story would be a nice reprieve.
However I also think these scandals unfortunately bring out people who take advantage of a situation for their own personal gain too and do a real disservice to the real victims out there.
And to answer the other post about Paterno having lung cancer I'm not surprised he looked ill I mean he's almost 85 its a matter of time. Would also explain why he gave his wife the house for $1 so she's taken care of.
Not surprising, but still disgusting: one of the newest victims to come forward is a Sandusky family member, presumably one of his 6 adopted kids.
What a total scum of the Earth.
He gonna have fun in prison.
