  •  The Sandusky scandal itself has everything (6+ / 0-)

    to do with the earlier education cuts since the Governor used the scandal as a tool to get at the PSU President.

    This is the entire reason Curley and Schultz were indicted, to get at Graham Spanier. Why? Curley for one, as an athletic director, is not a required responder to allegations. Scultz is, as vice president overseeing the police force. The prosecutor's were almost certainly trying to get these two men to give up Corbett's political enemy, Graham Spanier, because Spanier, as a family counselor with expertise in child abuse, is a required responder. He has to report allegations of child abuse (which is why Spanier in the past has done his absolute best not to hear such allegations, as in the case of the former student and Biology professor in Maryland; the victim asked Spanier if he could send him an audiotape of the professor admitting his abuse, and Spanier basically told him to keep the tape).

    So, it's really hard to separate the political fight over budget cuts (i.e. Spanier's threat to close down satellite campuses) with the Sandusky scandal when the governor was well versed in the scandal for years prior.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
