Cabinet may add Spanier
Dec 4 '08

"Prominent Democrats" have named Penn State President Graham Spanier a potential pick for President-elect Barack Obama's Secretary of Education, according to an early report by a Washington political journalist.

"When you talk to Democrats in Washington, they mention his name. He has a record of accomplishment that people here seem to respect," said Marc Ambinder, associate editor of The Atlantic, who wrote a post about Spanier's potential spot on an Obama shortlist for the position Tuesday on his blog.

Though Ambinder said he doesn't know "whether he's being vetted or not or what a vet would entail," he added Spanier is "absolutely in the mix."

Spanier, who is a registered Democrat, wrote in an e-mail Wednesday he was out of town, had not seen Ambinder's blog and does "not plan to comment on this speculation."

A transition official from the Obama transition team also declined to comment, adding the team does not discuss any appointments until theyare made.

However, Ambinder said the fact Spanier did not comment could indicate that he is being considered for the position.   ::snipping2::

Penn State Football: Former Players, Assistant Coach Also Appealing to NCAA
By Laura Nichols
August 7, 2012

Eight former Penn State football players and one former assistant coach have filed an appeal of the NCAA sanctions, specifically citing the vacated wins from 1998-2011.
Players involved in the suit Tuesday include Michael Robinson, Anwar Philips, Josh Gaines, Shamar Finney, Richard Gardner, Gerald Cadogan, Anthony Adams and Justin Kurpeikis.
Former assistant coach Bill Kenney also is included as an appellant in the appeal.
In the notice, filed by the former players and coach's attorneys, they say they were deprived of their right to due process and that many of the conclusions drawn by the Freeh report should be considered erroneous.

Two key figures in Penn State sex abuse scandal stay on payroll
Aug 6 '12

Reuters) - Two central figures in a probe of the sex abuse scandal at Penn State are continuing to draw salaries from the university, a spokesman said on Monday.

While deposed President Graham Spanier and one-time Athletic Director Tim Curley remain on the payroll, university spokesman David La Torre declined to say how much they are being paid.

Spanier, who has not been charged with a crime in the scandal, is on sabbatical in his role as a tenured professor in the school of Health and Human Development until December. Curley has been on administrative leave as athletic director, with pay, since he was charged with perjury in November of 2011.

In addition to whatever Penn State is paying him, Spanier has been reported to be working for an unspecified federal agency in a top secret role.

Both men were among those who came in for heavy criticism in a report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh in July, who probed the handling by Penn State of the abuse scandal that came about at the hands of former university assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

"Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State." Freeh said in a statement issued with the report.

"The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized."

He said neither Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz, the late football coach Joe Paterno or Curley ever demonstrated, "through actions or words, any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky's victims until after Sandusky's arrest."  ::snipping2::

I've wandered if Spanier's top secret Federal job involves Witness Protection or even federal informant duties????   Something fishy about a guy with his blotched record getting any kind of federal job.

I know what you mean about wondering if this is the beginning of the end.  I'm wondering if there are certain parties that don't want to see this pursued.  Also, it would appear any investigation into The Second Mile may never come to fruition, since it seems it will just be shut down and the monies transferred.   Some seem to want to move on, before anything else is discovered.  JMHO

OT I hope you can check in too Toler.  We'll miss you while you're out.  Have a good and safe trip!

Report: Ex-Penn State players appeal vacated wins
August 7, 2012

Eight former Penn State football players and one former assistant coach announced on Tuesday they have sent a letter of appeal to the NCAA regarding the NCAA's sanctions against the Nittany Lions' football program, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The group claims vacating the victories achieved from 1998 to 2011 unfairly taints the reputation of those not involved in the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal.

The Second Mile needs to be investigated.  It's not enough just to close it down.  JMHO

Only On 6: Victim says his abuser encouraged him to visit Sandusky
August 9, 2012

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. —

A man from Philadelphia told 6News that he was repeatedly abused by a businessman from the Delaware Valley who encouraged him to visit the Second Mile and meet Jerry Sandusky in State College.

 

Greg Bucceroni said he was sexually abused by Edward Savitz for several years.


Savitz was a well-known businessman who later died of complications from AIDS days before he was set to face trial for the abuse of several children in 1993.

 

“He said that Sandusky seen my pictures and a couple other pictures. He was very interested for us to go up there, interact with him and become part of the Second Mile family,” said Bucceroni.

Sandusky lawyer: 'We weren't given enough time to prepare' for trial
August 9, 2012

This is a RUSH transcript from "The O'Reilly Factor," August 9, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

Watch "The O'Reilly Factor" weeknights at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET!

BILL O'REILLY, FOX NEWS HOST: And in the "Impact" segment tonight, as you may know, a former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse. He is expected to get life in prison when is he sentenced in September.

However, his attorneys say they will appeal and are also asking for a new trial. That despite what one of Sandusky's lawyers said right after the jury verdict.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JOE AMENDOLA, JERRY SANDUSKY'S DEFENSE ATTORNEY: The judge in this case was marvelous. Judge Cleland was the ultimate jurist, he was fair. He was firm. He was reasonable with everything we asked for. I believe the jury acted on the evidence that was presented to it. And I don't dispute or have any problem with the jury's verdict.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

O'REILLY: That was Sandusky's co-counsel Joe Amendola.

And joining us now from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: Karl Rominger, the other co-counsel and partner of Joe Amendola in this case. So it seems to me that you are appealing or going to appeal but your guy or your partner is saying, look, everybody did the right thing. So what are you basing your appeal on?

KARL ROMINGER, JERRY SANDUSKY'S ATTORNEY: Well, if you listen carefully he said based on the evidence they had in front of them. Partly we weren't able to present everything we wanted to. Secondly, we weren't given enough time to prepare which was a major issue. I think...

O'REILLY: Seven months wasn't enough time?

Judge sets hearing about Sandusky charity's future
August 10, 2012 12:01 am

A status conference is planned for next month in a Centre County courtroom as the children's charity founded by convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky seeks to shut down and transfer its assets.

Court officials on Thursday posted online an order by Common Pleas Judge William Morgan summoning lawyers to the courthouse in Bellefonte for the Sept. 7 proceeding.

State College-based Second Mile is hoping to give its assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc., but lawyers for some of Mr. Sandusky's victims have objected.

Gov. Corbett hears it from all sides on Sandusky investigation
August 10, 2012

IT'S HARD TO imagine a political cause that would unite longtime Harrisburg gadfly Gene Stilp, liberal activist Michael Morrill and conservative columnist Chris Freind.

But in recent weeks, all have voiced loud support for what may be a quixotic quest for an investigation into whether Gov. Corbett mishandled the probe of convicted Penn State serial child molester Jerry Sandusky when Corbett was state attorney general.

The Corbett critics insist that their questions about the first two years of the child-sex probe — whether Corbett didn't put enough people on the case and whether political considerations were the reasons why — transcend their ideological differences.

"This is not a political issue for me — it's personal," said Morrill, executive director of the progressive lobbying group Keystone Progress, who said Corbett's handling of the case troubled him as a father, not as a liberal. He said he waited months before launching an online petition drive that's attracted more than 12,000 signatures. "I was hoping someone else would call for one."
