Posted on 07/27/2012 7:06:01 PM PDT by FlJoePa
It is Corbett himself who is most guilty of hesitating. Hesitating as then-attorney general to appropriately staff the Jerry Sandusky investigation, and hesitating for years to make an arrest, both of which jeopardized children. That hesitation, and Corbetts stonewalling, has created an intense firestorm.

Joe Paterno didn't accept over $650K in contributions from second mile board members. Joe Paterno didn't sign off on a $3M grant to build a second mile dormitory on campus - ALL THE WHILE knowing that js was about to be indicted (that was you, governor).
He wanted freeh and for a reason - because freeh is the only novelist that could get possibly get him out of this jam. Remember he appoints and controls 10 board seats (something that has to change pronto).
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
Didn't you know that despite the first accusation being dropped due to "lack of evidence" and despite 2nd Mile's continuing roster of victims for Sandusky and despite Corbett's lack of urgency, . . .it was ALL JoePa's fault?
Why did Joe then cover it up? I agree that this goes a lot deeper than anybody knows but Joe Pa STILL actively covered it up to protect the programs prestige, and that is inexcusable to most sane folks of good moral fiber.
MOre likely he covered it up to protect his butt. Ol’Jer can’t hurt him now, but there may be others!
What proof is there that Joe covered up anything? Why do people keep reporting this as if it is fact? There is zero evidence to say this and he got a clean bill of health from the PA attorney general.
He reported a second hand account of the 2011 incident the next day to his superiors (as he was required to do by PA law). MM testified that no one ever told him not to discuss what he saw.
If Joe covered something up, he did a much worse job of it than he did turning kids into men and winning football games.
Denial is not a river in Egypt. All you Paterno apologists make me want to puke.
You didn’t find Curley’s 1998 e-mail convincing?
No, not at all. If that is all they came up with after supposedly pouring through over 3 million e-mails, than no.
If we maybe could have waited until Curley and Shultz's trials, we could possibly hear from some of the actual participants. But that isn't how freeh operates.
He writes novels - to meet predetermined outcomes. This time he did it for the B.O.T. Why?
I think governor corbett is going to eventually have to explain that.
I like how Freind is talking in definites and attacking Corbett mindlessly. Is that guy conservative? I think Corbett did the investigation the correct way.
Freind is a fool.
Freind also wrote ridiculous articles claiming that Philadelphia turnout sunk Sestak in 2010. The turnout was exactly the same in Philly when Santorum was buried statewide in 2006. Freind is a hack.
There are plenty of madams involved in serving this pedophile operation.
Corbet is one of many. I think there were other pedos involved, too. They had best stop covering up for them now.
Anyone that thinks Corbett is friendly with ANYONE remotely connected to Obama is a fool.
There is no evidence to back that up, just Freeh’s opinions and bizarre interpretations of the facts.
The 1998 assault claim was investigated by five government agencies.
Not one of them recommended a charge against Sandusky.
The claim that Sandusky was “allowed” to resign in 1999 is bizarre - there was NO charge against him.
The only reasonable criticism that might be directed against Paterno is that he waited 24 hours - on a weekend - to report McQueary’s shower claim against Sandusky.
Remember, Paterno’s total knowledge of the shower case was hearsay. Paterno did not witness anything. All Paterno could do was report what McQueary said to him. If Paterno had testified in court, 100% of his knowledge would be hearsay evidence.
Remember this, too - we have ONLY McQueary’s account of his conversation with Paterno. We have NO rebuttal from Paterno.
After waiting 24 hours, Paterno reported McQueary’s claim to his [Paterno’s] immediate boss and to the University vice-president in charge of the campus police force.
Suggestions that Paterno had a responsibility to “follow up” on the shower allegations are legally bizarre.
Both the prosecution and the defense would have claimed that Paterno was trying to influence the case or was trying to obtain confidential information.
No lawyer involved in this case would have told Paterno ANYTHING.
I suggest reading this article from Powerline:
P.S. Corbett is a conservative. (as far as that goes)
Oh I agree this thing spreads far beyond Happy Valley.
You make me want to puke.
That homosexual pedophile Sandusky didn’t get away with decades of molesting little boys because and old man he no longer worked for looked the other way - - the homosexual pedophile Sandusky got away with decades of molesting little boys because hundreds of people looked the other way, beginning with his own family and extending to reporters, Second Mile associates, university benefactors and alumni, other coaches and football players, and God knows how many more people.
But you go ahead and throw the dead old man under the bus. I’m sure everybody else involved in this disgrace will join you.
Joe Pa’s supporters want to make him a martyr.
