Updated timeline of the Sandusky Scandal - Early 2009 - Corbett Given Responsibility to Investigate

http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2013/01/timeline_of_sandusky_sex_abuse.html#incart_river_default

Now our illustrious Governor is back in the headlines, belatedly fighting the NCAA penalty against Penn State in the courts, after he failed to do anything over the past year as a PENN STATE BOARD MEMBER. Corbett could have insisted that the Penn State Board of Trustees approve the NCAA agreement, and could have sought changes at that time. Instead, he waits until many months after the penalty agreement was put into effect. I predict the courts will refuse to get involved in a private contract between two entities.

To recognize the occasion, the Harrisburg paper has published a detailed chronology of the events, including information that was not previously assembled in one place.

1. As a member of the board, he was part of the problem. Now it's cya and appeal to the voters.

3. More than that. He ignored the charges as Atty Gen and sent $millions to Sandusky's foundation

when he became Governor. Hush money to Sandusky most likely.

4. Are we looking at another Franklin scandal?

I never believed Sandusky was alone in the molesting of the children.

5. A LOT of taxpayer money sent to Sandusky's group by GOV.Corbett AFTER the charges were seen by

Attorney General Corbett.

Hard to believe that doesn't smell bad to more people.

7. I certainly hope he gets raked over the coals. Imagine if some of those victims HAD followed through

with suicide because of Corbett being in control of their case against Sandusky.

8. Kane ran and won on the platform of investigating Corbett

It appears many PA residents also want to get to the bottom (pun unintended) of his complicity in the crimes.

2. Corbett should be sued for ignoring charges. Some victims became suicidal because of his inaction,

feeling they were not believed and would never receive justice.
