    On Thursday, testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, Attorney General Eric Holder debated the definition of lying with Wisconsin Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner. The back-and-forth drew outrage from conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who grew angry at the entire Obama administration in ways that he said he couldn’t even express on his Thursday program. “I am so enraged at Obama,” Limbaugh said. “I keep asking myself, what is the most effective way to express it to people without it arousing sympathy for this poor schlub? Or without making people mad at me? I...

    Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky emerged from an overnight jail stay Thursday after posting bail on new charges that he sexually abused two additional boys, including one who said Sandusky assaulted him in his basement while his cries for help went unheeded. Sandusky was driven from a Pennsylvania county jail to his home in the back seat of a grey sedan in the middle of a three-car convoy. The former coach kept his gaze straight ahead, clutching a manila envelope, during the short car ride. He then went inside without answering questions from reporters. Sandusky was arrested...

    Sandusky was denied job at Juniata after background check A year and a half after an investigation began into Jerry Sandusky's contact with young boys, the former Penn State assistant football coach applied for a volunteer coaching job at a central Pennsylvania college but was denied the job after a background check. Officials at Juniata College said Wednesday that Sandusky applied for the volunteer football coaching job in May 2010 and rejected the following month after a background check showed a high school where Sandusky previously volunteered was investigating him. Juniata spokesman John Wall said the college was not informed...

    STATE COLLEGE, PA (RNN) - Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested Wednesday after two more accusers testified they were sexually abused by him, bringing the number of alleged victims to 10.

One claims he was assaulted in 1997 and the other in 2004. Bail has been set at $250,000. According to the newest grand jury report, one of the victims, now 18, screamed for help from the basement as Sandusky raped him. The...

    December 6, 2011 ( - After a series of child sex abuse revelations hit Hollywood in the past month, both experts and previous child stars say the crackdown only scratches the surface of what has long been the entertainment industry’s darkest secret. Fox News reported Monday that former child stars of several eras - one even well into his 60s - reacted with grim sagacity as sex abuse charges were laid or discovered against three Hollywood employees: Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors; Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for “Sesame Street”; and registered sex offender...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused a young boy more than 100 times after meeting him through the charity he founded, then threatened the boy's family to keep him quiet about the encounters, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday. The lawsuit identifies the plaintiff, an adult, only as John Doe. It claims Sandusky abused the boy at the coach's State College home, at Penn State facilities and on at least one bowl game trip. The plaintiff is not among eight victims named in a grand jury report released earlier this month that detailed a...

    The story quotes his next-door neighbor and names his neighborhood. It describes the detailed circumstances of a car accident which was reported in local papers at the time. It says he liked to wear tie-dyed socks. None of these details have anything to do with why or how the boy was allegedly befriended and then assaulted over several years by Sandusky. They only serve to make the boy easily identifiable. You could call the anonymity maintained in the story a polite fiction, but there is nothing polite about it.

    MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — Marine Gen. James F. Amos, the face of opposition in the military to lifting the ban on gays serving openly, now acknowledges his concern has proven unfounded that repeal would undermine the war effort. In fact, he says, Marines have embraced the change. In an Associated Press interview, Amos called the repeal in September "a non-event."

    The Mafia is a degenerate organization which exploits human misery for criminal profit, and even children are not beyond the reach of its dirty hands. For decades the Mafia has been the principal producer and distributor of kiddie porn, and among the key figures in this racket was Gambino capo Robert DiBernardo who was a top lieutenant to family boss Paul Castellano. The pair would meet each Friday at Castellano's Staten Island mansion to gloat how filthy rich they were getting from their ungodly crimes. In 1986 federal postal inspectors discovered cartons of magazines seemingly depicting underage boys "engaged in...

    News stories world wide blared the arrest of one-time Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky along with the twisted details of the crimes for which he has been charged, but another tale of pederasty and administrative cover-up in Happy Valley is getting the comparative quiet treatment. Like the Sandusky scandal it involves faculty with national reputations. Paul McLaughlin, 45, of Arizona says he was molested in the late 1970s and early 1980s by three men including John T. Neisworth, a professor of special education at Penn State who literally write the book on autism. McLaughlin says he was 11...

    The allegations towards accused Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky continue with his grandson now coming forward with claims of sexual abuse. A complaint was filed against the former assistant coach by the wife of one of his adopted sons, Matt Sandusky with Pennsylvania's Children's and Youth Services, his lawyer told ABC News. “The allegations are ridiculous and unfounded. Jerry has absolutely denied any inappropriate contact with his grand kids.” Sandusky's attorney Joseph Amendola said. Sandusky's daughter-in-law filed for a restraining order after his November 5 arrest to prevent her children from sleeping over.

    Court records refer to him simply, as Victim One. Outside of a four-and-a-half page section about him in the grand jury indictment of ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, little else has been discussed about him publicly. Last week, his mother (whom I will refer to as "Mother One") removed him from Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall, Pa., where he was a senior and an all-star athlete. In an interview conducted last week, she explained why she pulled him from the school. "They were not helpful," Mother One said of the school's administrators. "They wanted me to...

    Former Penn State student disciplinarian Vicky Triponey tells The Wall Street Journal that football players were treated "more favorably than other students accused of violating the community standards as defined by the student code of conduct." Triponey, who resigned her post as the university's standards and conduct officer in 2007, spoke to the newspaper after it obtained a 2005 email from her to then-president Graham Spanier and others in which Triponey expressed her concerns about the disciplinary process as it pertained to football players. Coach Joe Paterno "is insistent he knows best how to discipline his players ... and their...

    Two years ago, Thom Hunter, a volunteer coach at Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall, Pa., saw something special in a 15-year-old boy at the school: a remarkable natural running ability. “There’s not anyone tougher than him when he runs,” Hunter said of the teenager. “You see other people start out too hard like he does, and they just collapse. It’s amazing to watch him just push through it.” In Hunter, it seems, the young high school runner saw something that felt just as rare: a coach he could trust, an adult male who would neither abandon nor harm...

    An Arizona man claims he was sexually abused 30 years ago by a Penn State professor — and the university refused to investigate his claims. Paul McLaughlin, now of Phoenix, says the abuse began when he was just 11 and lasted from 1977-81, with an education professor and two other predators targeting him. The victim told ABC News that he made audiotapes in 2001 of conversations where Prof. Jack Neisworth admitted performing oral sex on him. “Although I had clear evidence of abuse by this professor, the university refused to act,” charged McLaughlin. “Last week’s arrest of Penn State coach...
