Corbett: Has Read Sandusky Report, Won’t Comment

Waiting until it is released publicly.

Gov. Tom Corbett has read Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s report on his handling of the Jerry Sandusky case while he was the state’s top prosecutor, but won’t comment on it until it’s released publicly.

Sources say the report largely absolves Corbett of dragging his feet on the case, although it suggests prosecutors could’ve searched Sandusky’s home sooner in the investigative process.

No word on when Kane’s report will be officially made public. (AP)

    He turned a blind eye toward what that man did while they threw money toward each other’s projects. The only time we ever even heard Corbett make a statement was after this matter had exposition from a college newspaper report and then national television. Otherwise, Sandusky would have gone unhindered.

    Corbett belongs in the same jail cell.

    At best Corbett did a lousy investigation. It took 20 months to identify a second Sandusky victim via a fluke email tip to talk to Mike McQueary. Corbett could have had 2 more victims within days with just a phone call to police at Penn State, where Sandusky was a student, coach and emeritus professor for over 40 years.

    What was Corbett’s Sandusky investigation doing from March 2009 to Nov. 2010? Sounds like nothing.

    If you want to do something evil, put it inside something boring.
