Tardy prosecutor who tip toed during the Sandusky investigation and enabled more abuse now wants to benefit off those fine dollars. Needed Penn State for economic and political reasons so he bowed to A percieved sacred cow.

If law enforcement had done their job in the late 90s the fine would've been lower, that football program would've been back on track and more important over a decade of fewer abused juveniles.

The University agreed to those sanctions so who the frack is the governor to protest sanction against a psuedo or quasi state university. Penn State is NOT a full fledged state college.

Political meat for his fan club.

The Governor wants to put his hand into the pocket of the NCAA, It is a state issue if NCAA can stay in PA.
From the vendors to the State leadership they want to pass the quilt and close their eyes.
The damage was done to national NCAA colleges and its reputation. And, they are paying from a guilt by association.

This is the highest priority item for his time? No way!

Cut taxes. Slash the state's payroll! Slash the state's over all costs. Get the public unions out of government! Fight for LIVING WAGE jobs. Cut legislators' salaries and benefits!!!!!! Fight for full transparency!

NCAA is a convenient distraction and a complete waste of time and dollars.

How about the people of PA file a lawsuit against Tom Corbett for ignoring the Sandusky case on his desk when he was Attorney General many, many years ago!
