Pa. Gov. In Middle On Penn State Case

5

I found this Op-Ed piece particularly interesting for the following reasons: -It discusses the somewhat odd position of Gov. Corbett as the initiator of this investigation (before he was elected) and as a member of PSU BoT (after he was elected). -It also references a NYT article that indicates the Grand Jury Report was leaked via a "computer glitch", although it was filed under "seal." Now, before anyone jumps on me for linking another writer's (who happens to be an attorney) op-ed, I maintain that those opinions are not my own. What is interesting to me is whether or not the situation with the administration would have shaken out differently if the sealed report had not been leaked? Perhaps PSU's lack of preparation and inability to control the situation can be explained by them not expecting the details of the investigation to go public? I feel that the public may have had a tamer reaction if the details were kept sealed; after all thanks to the good work of the Patriot news, we've known about this GJ investigation and those involved since April. The situation changes in that we just know Sandusky, Curley and Schultz were indicted for their respective crimes. We have no information on what Big Red, Joe, Gricar and others knew (or didn't know) and did (or didn't do). Ultimately, none of this information changes the sadness of the situation. Many children were allegedly abused and my thoughts and prayers go out to them and the respective families. I'm not trying to start a fire here...been way too much of that lately. And I don't want to be accused of being a Paterno loyalist in the wake of sexual abuse. I maintain, knowing what we know now, he could have done more - but I still want all the facts. As others have said, this whole week has just been surreal, and I'm wondering if there was ever a plan for how this situation was supposed to unfold.
