As some of you may recall, I was less than pleased when I read the first bits of information to be released regarding the Board of Trustees' Special Investigative Committee. Well, now that there are a few more details emerging, I may be starting to accept that the BOT is actually taking this matter seriously.
Foremost among the items making me feel better is the person who has been tapped to spearhead the investigation - former Federal Judge and FBI Director Louis Freeh. Reading his bio, I see no ties to Penn State, but I do see a long history of not being afraid to piss off politicians from both sides of the aisle. I also see that after leaving public service, Judge Freeh went on to start a consulting group that sounds like it's perfectly equipped to turn over every stone in this investigation.
As long as Judge Freeh is actually able to work completely outside the sphere of influence of the current Board of Trustees, I am willing to climb on board with this plan.
