Former Penn State President Graham Spaniers status as a professor in the College of Health and Human Development is unknown, university officials said Friday morning.
The Board of Trustees is working on Spaniers contract, university spokeswoman Lisa Powers said.
Spaniers listing did not appear in the Penn State directory. His wife, Sandra Spanier, an English professor at Penn State, remained in the university directory. Sandra Spanier is the general editor of the Hemingway Letters Project and is listed on the Department of Englishs website as a tenure-line faculty member.
College of Health and Human Development officials were unavailable to answer questions Friday morning.
The Penn State Board of Trustees announced Wednesday evening that Spanier would no longer serve as president.
Anyone else notice the irony here?
According to Rodney Erickson as the presser Erickson just gave, Spanier is still a tenured prof at PSU and could teach at PSU.
Fire them both.
He has a wife? I’m shocked.
Powerful gay men that travel in high social circles often have wives. I don't know if Graham Spanier is a homosexual, but it wouldn't shock me if that were to come out.
Gee, wonder why Barry didn't go with Spanier....?
And probably many strains of venereal disease. This from his bio:
"Spanier was also author of a study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior on the practice of partner swapping or swinging..."
Well he sounds like a real sweetie and if what I’ve read is true is probably the most responsible for any lax attitudes the school faculty had regarding deviant sex.
They could (and should) oust him as President, but likely we’ll have to keep paying him forever
Another example of how these people are parasites. The spouses also get a cushy job and suck money from the system.
Intersting that the acting President now wants the whole community to come together and unite as PSU struggles to get past their self inflicted status. PSU is emblematic of the seedy world of academia today. We’ve seen the drove of the finest academics in Obamas administration... failures of theory application. When they finally slink back to their esteemed snakeden, they again are emboldened to impress the 19 year old bubble heads.

“According to Rodney Erickson as the presser Erickson just gave, Spanier is still a tenured prof at PSU and could teach at PSU.”
So, the Pres wasn’t really “Fired” fired.
WHO DOES THIS GUY HAVE THE GOODS ON?
The key part is because FR posters tend to post articles already in MSM.
In all the MSM articles I saw on this issue Nov. 7-8 (over most of those two days), they did NOT reference Spanier as a guilty party.
I finally found an article that did very late on the 8th and posted it: Penn State assistant coach ran kid camps after ban
That article mentions VP Schultz' attorney implicating Spanier: Schultz's lawyer said the men did what they were supposed to do by informing their superiors of the accusations against Sandusky.
(That part of the article was referencing Schultz & Curley as "the men")
But overall...you have a point...I am surprised by the lack of MSM articles that have seemingly failed to highlight these two sections from the Grand Jury Presentment:
"Curley testified that he also advised Penn State president Graham Spanier of the information that he had received from the graduate assistant and the steps he had taken as a result. Curley was not specific in the about the language he used to in reporting the 2002 incident to Spanier. Spanier testified to his approval of the approach taken by Curley." (p. 8)
And also this note on pp. 9-10: "Schultz confirmed that University President Graham Spanier was apprised in 2002 that a report of an incident involving Sandusky and a child in the showers on campus had been reported by an employee. Schultz testified that Spanier approved of the decision to ban Sandusky from bringing children into the locker room and the decision to advise the Second Mile of the 2002 incident."
So...what gives with the MSM on failing to highlight a Democrat like Spanier?
