STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had close business ties with board members of The Second Mile, the charity founded by alleged child molester and former Nittany Lions assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, the online publication The Daily reported.
Paterno and three fellow investors, including longtime Second Mile board chairman Robert Poole, secured financing to build a $125 million luxury retirement community around 2002, according to public records, The Daily reported Monday.

Please read MrEdd's comment, explains why this is all relevant. At this point, along with the other article I just pinged about child molesting in Hollyfreakingweird, I wonder the real extent of the well connected and wealthy destroying the innocence and lives of children.
I think the point is that the pedo and the board of the “charity” had a lot of close ties beyond any charity.
I am waiting for the proof that all the guys on the board knew. Until that is established, this is a real stretch. But then again we are talking the ‘court of public opionion” where you don’t really needs facts
Sir H, your comment would be apropos if those of us discussing this legally were able to pronounce sentences on all concerned right now.
But no, we cannot, all we can do is discuss the issue. Apparently you think that we should not be able to do just that.
I heard from another source today (a man who works in a position auxiliary to the sports department) that it was know 20 years ago that Sandusky was a pedophile. This insider asserts also that the boys were being passed around to Second Mile donors.
My Gaydar is pegged on 4/5 guys in that photo.
That is a problem no amount spinning can erase. The other problem is the failure of the grad student—and a future PSU coach—to stop the rape. His, and everyone else’s, first instinct was to protect the school and the football program.
It should not be surprising that so many of the people who actually live in State College and surrounding area are connected. Once you strip out the students this is a very small community. Heck, some of the names on the PSU Board of Trustees are the same as when I attended Penn State from ‘61 to’65. Everybody who is anybody knows everyone else that is anybody.
The entire community—perhaps incuding the Alumni Assn.— circled the wagons to protect the school.
Yeah wow. This kind of thing rarely happens. It's striking.
Absolutely not. Let's discuss the matter. Free and open expression is another one of those neat things I love so much about America. I am just offering an alternative point of view that says "let's have a real investigation and let's not jump to conclusions until we have that investigation." Again, if they are guilty, throw the book at them. But in Paterno's case, he at least deserves a chance to defend himself.
Most people do not realize how small a community Centre County Pennsylvania really is.
Penn State is Centre County....in most ways. The only other major employer is the state prison where we execute criminals.
The fact remains that we know everybody at Penn State is connected in some way to everybody at Second Mile. That is not illegal or indicative of improper activity.
However, the fact that everybody at Penn State is connected in some way to everybody at Second Mile creates an atmosphere where illegal and improper actions can take place.
Let the investigation take its course. Centre County is not leading this, the state is leading this, so it should be handled well.
Do you think their wives know?
I suppose if we didn’t know about the scandal they would on a quick passing glance look normal but now a certain creepiness is definitely there with this group.
Here is a great article that shows why the incestuous financial deals are relevant:
A lawyer for one of Sandusky’s alleged victims has already jumped all over the financial connections.
“It’s no coincidence that they failed to act at the same time that they were working on this project,” said victims’ attorney Jeff Anderson, who filed a civil lawsuit against Sandusky, The Second Mile and Penn State on Wednesday.
Anderson called the $125 million project “another layer of motivation, individual financial stakes, in making sure that the stature of The Second Mile and Penn State remained intact.”
It’s a small town, for crying out loud. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting someone connected to Second Mile, the football team, or even Sandusky himself.
Anyway, ESPN has a lot of damn gall reporting anything on this after the way they covered up the same problem at Syracuse!
the more I hear Sandusky talk, and knowing how they rode that female BB coach out on a rail for NOT wanting lesbians on her team, the more I think that Paterno was forced to NOT say anything....
Kind of is reminiscent of all the other child sex rings-—like the Franklin-Cover-up and this one which is NOT uncovered and STILL ACTIVE:
It is time to TELL who these homosexual producers are Corey Feldman so the whole homosexual network can be EXPOSED and CLOSED DOWN! They are still raping boys. (Isn’t it interesting how the “press” vilifies the Catholic Church—one of the few institutions that still condemn homosexuality and pederasty???????? and they cover up these pedophiles who form perceptions of good and evil in our children through their propoganda in media????) These very pedophiles are trying to normalize homosexuality-—pederasty is the main part of homosexuality. Keynes—the worshipped economist, was also a sodomite and used boys in orgies and all the elites allowed him full access to little boys with no condemnation-—they glorify and worship him—University professors of the Bill Ayers type—Marxists, socialists.
A little note: These pedophile “producers” are the same ones who are promoting Glee type Brokeback dysfunction to children 24/7-—to make them easy targets, immoral, addicts, etc.
At the Universities-—that is why they promote homosexuality and orgies on campus....it is their perverted Marxist worldview which denies god and Nature’s design of mankind.
These people have got to be removed from POWER over ideology and making laws—like “homosexual” marriage. They are corrupting and destroying our children and future.
Why should a 27 year old grad student be put in a position to correct a situation that should have been addressed by a the State of Pennsylvania, the President of the University and the Board of Regents 4 years prior?
Every story that attacks McQueary’s and Paterno’s credibility is only going to help Sandusky walk.
The focus should be on the tenure system and how it protects people like Sandusky.
That’s another great question...
Paterno hired her in 1980.
Paterno removed Sandusky in 1999 as Def. Coordinator
Somewhere in the middle, the state board of regents hired a President who studied the mating behavior of couples who engaged in swinging and wife-swapping.
