Former PA Gov Ed Rendell fans the flames, says Gov. Corbett should talk Sandusky

Rendell fans the flames, says Gov. Corbett should talk Sandusky

http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/Rendell-fans-the-flames-says-Gov-Corbett-should-talk-Sandusky.html

Gov. Corbett has some explaining to do, according to former Gov. Ed Rendell.

Speaking on a Philadelphia sports talk radio show Monday, the former district attorney-turned-politician questioned why investigators with the state Attorney General’s office, under Corbett’s direction, did not discover the apparently damning emails relating to the Sandusky scandal that were uncovered last week by former FBI director Louis Freeh. Freeh had been hired by Penn State to investigate the university’s handling of the child sexual abuse allegations against Sandusky.

“It’s certainly something the governor should answer,” Rendell said on the Mike Missanelli show on 97.5, The Fanatic.

In fact, Rendell maintained, Corbett should be answering a whole host of questions involving his office’s handling of the Sandusky case, including why the investigation took as long as it did, and why initially there were so little manpower assigned to the case.

“Those are legitimate questions,” said Rendell, adding that Corbett should not get indignant when questioned about the case because “when you run for public office, you have to understand that you are going to be questioned, no matter what you do.”

“It’s different from running your own business, it’s different from running your own law firm,” Rendell added. “When you run for public office, you have the duty to explain.”

3. Series. I grew up in PA, Selinsgrove, if anyone is interested.

 

I'd have looked there first for our retirement, but it's gone toxic. Rendell started it, Corbett is just finishing up where he left off.

4. Ed, Ed, Ed. Corbett's an asswipe. He sold the state to the frackers. He's got the IQ of a turnip.

 

"The Spot" is gone, sorry, you'll have to find another place to eat, but at least you went out on the streets. Not that I expect Corbett to ever set foot on any street in Harrisburg, but if I see him, he's getting a full truck nutz moon from me. Being arrested for that would be well worth it.
