BOOM! Investigation to Focus on Governorís Handling of Penn State Abuse Case

HARRISBURG, Pa. ó First it was a criminal case. Then it enveloped a university athletic program. Now the Penn State child sexual abuse scandal has infiltrated the realm of politics.

Pennsylvaniaís new attorney general is set to name a special prosecutor in the coming days to investigate Gov. Tom Corbettís handling of the case, specifically why nearly three years elapsed before criminal charges were brought.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat elected in November, confirmed her plans in an interview here. She suggested that when he was attorney general Mr. Corbett, a Republican, slow-walked the investigation of a longtime football coach at the center of the scandal while campaigning for governor.

Mr. Corbett, who was elected in 2010, has flatly rejected the suggestion that he delayed the case.

But polls show that a majority of Pennsylvania voters are critical of his handling of the investigation, and Ms. Kaneís inquiry is likely to cast a shadow over his bid for a second term in 2014.

And he's up for re-election in 2014. Aw, now wouldn't that be just too bad if this affected his political career?

2. Shame that.

Gov. Corporate is an odious bastard who never met a privatization scheme he didn't love. Exposing his role in the PSU scandal is this most likely way we can show him the door. Excellent news!

3. When he became Attorney General

telemarketing companies were supposed to be fined for
violating the do not call list, and victims were supposed
to get $300 per call.

I'm still waiting, Governor.

10. Excellent news...

His handling of the case when he was attorney general was appalling and, imo, definitely "slow-walked" the investigation. Kudos to Attorney General Kane!
