Ex-Penn St. president charged in Sandusky case

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The "conspiracy of silence" that protected Jerry Sandusky extended all the way to the top at Penn State, prosecutors said Thursday as they charged former university President Graham Spanier with hushing up child sexual abuse allegations against the former assistant football coach.

Prosecutors also added counts against two of Spanier's former underlings, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who were already charged with lying to a grand jury.

Spanier's lawyers issued a statement that asserted his innocence and described the new charges as an attempt by Gov. Tom Corbett to divert attention from the three-year investigation that began under his watch as attorney general.

"This was not a mistake by these men. This was not an oversight. It was not misjudgment on their part," said state Attorney General Linda Kelly. "This was a conspiracy of silence by top officials to actively conceal the truth."

They deserve a fair trial. Then execution by a firing squad armed with flamethrowers.

They all knew exactly what was going on. Schultz had as special file on Sandusky that his assitants were told not to look at. Grand jury has it. Damning.

At a Capitol news conference, Kelly said all three men “knowingly testified falsely and failed to provide important information and evidence.”

Spanier was charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Curley and Schultz face new charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy.


I’m wondering when the abusers of the boys will surface. It’s not just enablers and cover up people, there were more who abused these boys.

What I’d like to know is why Øbama “took care of” Spanier by landing him a cushy federal job.

Why is the POTUS aiding and abetting those who aid and abet child molestors?

Amen...Anyone connected to this should be put away after a fair trial and conviction. They sacrificed these youngsters for the institution...Pathetic and not acceptable.

Sandusky sacrificed children to his perverted lusts. Spanier arrived at Penn State as its president in the mid 1990s, announcing his intention to make it the most "gay friendly" campus in America. He succeeded to the extent that it became the most gay pederast-friendly campus in America.

Next up should be those who serve on Penn State's Board of Trustees. Which of them knew what when??? Which actually emulated Sandusky's behavior and which merely enabled that behavior? Investigate. Indict whomever is criminally culpable. Prosecute. Punish.

Next give the same sort of attention to Sandusky's Second Mile Foundation seeking to "help" fatherless boys. Same questions, same responses.

Next, Penn State is a government school. Investigate connections to politicians of whatever party and whether they connected to the scandalous behavior or its coverup. Same questions, same responses.

They weren’t protecting the school. They were protecting very important clients in Sandusky’s sex ring. High-level politicians, judges, doctors, lawyers—all involved with the Second Mile Foundation and big-time donors to PSU. Follow the $$, just follow the $$.

Sodomite protecting sodomites. Maybe it was a thank you for covering up for other sodomites who were in Sandusky’s sex ring.

When you practice sodomy-—there is no Right and Wrong in the Christian sense.

This is excellent news. It very much appears this guy was an active enabler with a weird sexual agenda.

Spanier is a leftist pervert; I can’t remember specifically his thesis or whatever it’s called, but it was about “swinging” or some other sexually perverted topic. Since he was president there, he pushed fagdom nonstop.
