Former PSU president Graham Spanier keeps national security clearance amid Sandusky scandal

Fired Penn State University President Graham Spanier has kept his job with the federal government through the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and the release of the internal university report that labeled him and others as part of a child sex abuse cover-up.

Attorneys for Spanier, who has not been charged criminally, said Spanier was investigated for four months after the scandal broke in November, and when it concluded, the feds allowed him to keep his "top secret security clearance."

Spanier's attorneys have criticized the Louis Freeh report's conclusions that Spanier, Joe Paterno and two other officials covered for Sandusky to save face.

Instead, his attorneys called the federal investigation "far more independent" and noted that his security clearance wasn't included in the final Freeh report even though the feds interviewed many of the same people interviewed by Freeh's team.

Well he certainly shows stellar judgement, the right priorities and ethical behavior. We should feel even safer.

1. The DoD and DoE spend *big* money at Penn State

The grants the university gets from the government makes the football revenue look like a bake sale.

2. Be that as it may,

it begs the question of why he still has clearance. Spanier has not shown he is someone who should be trusted.
