Graham Spanierís gig as fed worker is a mystery (Penn State Disgrace)

Graham Spanier might have been ousted from his post at the helm of Penn State over the sex-abuse scandal that engulfed the university, but it seems he’s found a backup employer: the American taxpayer.

Only a disgraced public figure would consider joining the much-maligned ranks of the federal workforce as a step up, reputation-wise. We can assume there were no openings for a used-car salesman.

Spanier was faulted in an internal Penn State report after the conviction on child-molestation charges of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. The report said he, head coach Joe Paterno and others helped cover up Sandusky’s abuse.

His lawyer confirms to the Loop that Spanier is working on a part-time consulting basis for a “top-secret” agency on national security issues. But the gig is so hush-hush, he couldn’t even tell his attorneys the name of the agency.

Penn State has been busy running interference for its "shady" class. First, Michael Mann and his emails to Phil Jones about keeping down skeptics regarding AGW, then the Sandusky episode. One wonders just what misbehavior it is Penn State will NOT tolerate.

I'm curious about their position regarding Chick-Fil-A.

Big universities might as well be branch offices of Big Government. It’s where people go to drain the American taxpayer’s wallet and refer to it as research or education.

IMO, the answer is:

The Franklin Cover Up

John Decamp said there was a link to Penn State.
