You know an election year is coming up when politician want to grab on to the story of the day to get their faces on TV. Watch, they will end up messing up the prosecutions case and Sandusky will walk Scott free, because they drag everybody involved to DC for a dog and pony show.

He can start by looking at NAMBLA lover Kevin Jennings-the former safe school czar. What did Obama know and when did he know it?

I think the feds want to get involved in literally everything just so the sheeple will continue to consider them relevant. Smart Governors need to start saying, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Not that I condone in any manner child molestation, but isn’t there bigger items on the agenda, like our National Debt, than this that our “elected REPRESENTATIVES” need to be working on? No wonder the Congress of the United States, both Houses, are in such low regard.

Are you kidding? Congress is not even allowed to utter the word “homosexual” due to political correctness. Forget it.

This authority is found in the Constitution where?

“Watch, they will end up messing up the prosecutions case and Sandusky will walk Scott free.”

The filth of the Democratic Party would LOVE to have this happen! They’re itching to blame this all on Gov. Corbett ... that’s my opinion anyway.

Corbett is promoting initiatives similar (not exactly like) to Ohio and Wisconsin with respect to teachers ... the amount of filth they sling his way is nauseating. This is coming from someone who isn’t the world’s biggest Corbett fan either.

“Little” Casey is such a doofus. Even if he ‘wins’ (i.e. the Federal investigation contributes to routing out additional wrong-doing), he loses. Many of his Pennsylvania constituents will hate him for it. But who am I to tell a liberal democrat NOT to shoot himself in the foot?

Right after the Czars paragraph, and just before the Supercommitee subsection.

No but a rotten coaching staff, a diseased admin, and an unacountable board of trustees sure do make a mess.

Take care of the Pedophile Barney Frank first, then maybe the Senate will have the credibility to go after Penn State.

reviewing their policies regarding this subject
right now.

Little Bobby wants everyone to know he's against child molesters.

Go figure. Maybe he thought we had doubts.

Betcha he lets this die when his masters point out that Graham Spanier might get snared in the net.

"This authority is found in the Constitution where?"

It's right beneath the affirmative clause. It clearly states that the Federal Government can go into schools and tell them what they have to teach, and it can tell employers that it doesn't matter if someone is unqualified for a job, they have to recruit, hire, and promote people no matter how incompetent they are.

What a twit, Bread and Circus, the US economy is burning to the ground and this twit wants to waste time investigating something that’s not apart of his mandate

And don’t forget Spanier. Obama considered him for secretary of education. PS welcomed him with open arms in ‘08. I’m sure there are pictures of the two of them together.

Look Barney Frank is corrupt and a pothetic Homo, but I very much doubt he's a pedofile. The only reason he keeps getting elected is because of his jerry mandered district

This is no time for the senate to get frivolous.

They have serious Walmart lay away issues to resolve before the end of the year.

Corbett is the one who started the Grand Jury investigation. I hope they have fun with that

If Happy Valley can’t get its act together then yeah someone else needs to step in otherwise this basically create an another zone where the connected can do whatever they want to whoever they want.

I’ve lived in that kind of zone and that was beyond idiotic,the way Judges and policemen would just collude with whoever needed to be kept happy at that very moment.
