He allowed it to be covered up. He is, therefore a moral co-conspirator.
This is NOT supported by the facts as we know them. While it *might* come out that this is indeed the case, it is neither consistent with the known facts nor is it consistent with Paterno's character.

Please, don’t use character and Paterno in the same sentence. This guy is a disgrace. So you may be a “sports nut,” but you can’t sweep Paterno’s role under the rug “ for the good of collegiate sports.” It just isn’t going to wash. It is very telling that the accounts coming out of Penn State are to the effect that everyone knew about these acts, and knew about them for a decade or more. LIke Al Pacino said in The Scent of a Woman, “someone needs to take a flamethrower to this place!”
