Skip to comments.Fox’s Chris Wallace Grills PA Governor Corbett On Penn State Investigations
Posted on 11/13/2011 5:58:43 PM PST by tired&retired
From his position on the Penn State board of trustees, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett voted to fire coach Joe Paterno for his involvement in the cover-up of assistant coach Jerry Sanduskys multiple allegations of sexually abusing young men.
Wallace noted at several points during the interview that Corbett was being less than open about all the details of the case being deliberated by the board of trustees, and Corbett admitted he was not at liberty to divulge everything.
Even when Wallace tried to get Corbett to say if whether the scandal is over or whether more people will come forward, Corbett was tight-lipped and said he doesnt have all the details of the Attorney Generals ongoing investigation.

Today on Fox News I learned that PA Gov. Corbett is on the board of Trustees and voted to fire Paterno. Much of this was based upon investigations by the Attorney Generals Office, which was Corbett prior to being elected Governor. This is like having the prosecutor being Judge and Jury too.
I was going to contact the AGs office on a legal matter a few years ago. Always desiring to know the background of the person I am dealing with, I pulled up Corbetts resume to learn about him. One thing said it all... Previous employment prior to AG. In-House Legal Counsel for Waste Management Inc. !!!!!!!
Hate to say it, but the garbage is beginning to stink!
fox sunday news with chris chipmunk
was a non-story—
there was no new news to report.
Corbett became a Trustee only ‘after’ becoming Governor. He could not comment on the Grand Jury findings that happened prior to that, when he was AG. The pressure he has been under is hard to imagine. Remember the time frame here.
” young men”? Ten year old boys are boys, not young men!
Chris Wallace was annoying as heck. He often is.
obviously fox news knew that too.
there is no new news, so why bother with the story?
A couple of days ago someone posted on one of the Penn State threads a newspaper clipping from 1981 involving Joe Paterno's suing his own parish for $1,000,000 because his son had been injured on a trampoline there (according to the poster, the son and some other kids had broken in to use the trampoline). The case was settled out of court so it wasn't known how much Paterno actually collected.
I hate to say it but if you place Paterno as high up as possible on the moral character pedestal, something is wrong.
Why would you hate to say it? It’s true...
Thank you for sharing that. I arrived in Penn State after that and was unaware. I look for facts to make my decisions. If you have any references to the event I would love to read it.
B.C. had a point shaving scandal on the football team back in the 90’s. The head coach was the one who found out about it and immediately informed the A.D. and they went to the police. The head coach was fired anyway since it happened on his watch and he should have had better controls on his players.
