It’s never good when the feds show up (ask Jimmy McNulty) —yet that is exactly what is now happening in the Penn State sex-abuse scandal.
Patriot-News ace reporter Sara Ganim (seriously, this girl will be working at the New York Times in less than a year) reported that federal authorities are exploring the possibility of a cover-up.
Among subpoenas they are requesting are correspondences with The Second Mile, Jerry Sandusky’s children’s charity; computer hard drives; out-of-court settlements involving Sandusky; and payments by board members to third parties.
They’ll also be looking hard for any signs of fraud or hush money.
You may remember a report that surfaced after the scandal first broke about a child-sex prostitution ring, involving unnamed high-profile board members.
Bottom line, this is getting even uglier – if that’s even possible – folks.
