A dead man and a university athletic program make all too convenient scapegoats. Which is not to say that Joe Paterno doesn't deserve the huge stain on his reputation or that he should not have been charged as an accessory in the Sandusky case. However, there are others who may be as guilty as Paterno but have yet to be held to account. One in particular stands out like the proverbial sore thumb Governor Corbett.
Here are three unanswered questions. As Attorney General, did Corbett hamstring the investigation for political reasons? When as governor he got a seat on Penn State's board of trustees, did he do anything to keep Sandusky away from potential victims? And why did he approve a $3 million grant to Sandusky's Second Mile charity while Sandusky was being investigated for raping multiple children?
If Corbett did nothing wrong, why does he respond to reporters' questions with indignation? Among the other people who need to clarify what they knew and did is Governor Rendell. We need a full investigation, not a whitewash involving scapegoats. Those who aid and abet pedophiles should be punished.
