The grand jury report in the Penn State case was revealed by accident?!
The quote in the post title appears at the end of an article in the NYT about Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett:
Mr. Corbett, as state attorney general, had begun an investigation in 2009 into allegations that a former Penn State assistant football coach had abused young boys, and that university officials might have covered up the scandal. He had convened a grand jury, and his prosecutors had taken testimony. But when he ran for governor, and even after he took office, he was obligated to keep the investigation secret, even as he saw the university officials at the center of the investigation doing little to address the substance of the inquiry....
When the report became public, Corbett seems to have been key to the quick removal of Joe Paterno and university president Graham B. Spanier. According to NYT sources , Corbett, as a Roman Catholic, "was struck early on in the Penn State investigation by the similarities between the universitys failure to report allegations of sexual abuse involving Mr. Sandusky and the churchs failure to report pedophile priests."
Interesting. And good for Corbett. But let's hear more about that computer glitch.

Timing is everything in life.
But more importantly, in my view, I would prefer we stop referring to child rape as “molestation”. I am sick and tired of hearing this term in the media and casual conversation.
When a grown man sodomizes or has anal intercourse with a minor it is RAPE! It is NOT molestation or sexual abuse. It IS rape, plain and simple.
Good Lord, have the liberal media, Hollywood and homosexual community decensitized this nation to the point where we are unable to call a rapist, a “rapist” anymore? This is insane.
Well it sure helped to keep Obama and Solyndra and Obama and Fast and Furious and Obama and (fill in the blank for whatever potential criminal activity he’s up to his neck in).. out of the headlines!
I suspect this was an intentional “glitch”.
“...it wasn’t RAPE-rape...”
It is only rape when a woman (preferably a Democrat, who is represented by Gloria Allred and supported by the MSM) says she was raped. Everything else is sexual abuse, molestation, or improper behavior and not worthy, or qualified to be classified as rape. /s
