Didn't know Goobis was on the Board of Trustees:http://deadspin.com/penn-state-trustee-running-out-of-sympathy-for-35-yr-1793868399
“Running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth,” Penn State trustee Albert Lord wrote in an email to the Chronicle of Higher Education. “Do not understand why they were so prominent in trial. As you learned, Graham Spanier never knew Sandusky abused anyone.”
Love it. LOVE it. The truth is slowly but surely starting to come out in this case, and the good guys are going to win. Louis Freeh is shitting his pants right now. Love it...
--Federal investigator says there was no conspiracy, no cover up, and no wrongdoing by PSU administrators.
A federal investigator came out in recent days stating that there was absolutely no cover up at Penn State, and that Graham Spanier and the Penn St administrators were railroaded. Back when this scandal first broke, the feds did an investigation into Spanier because he had a top secret security clearance, and were looking into whether it should be revoked. Turns out this investigation was going on at the same time as Louis Freeh's farce, and was far more exhaustive (yet much cheaper) than Freeh's. The fed was able to talk to all of the players involved (Spanier, Curley, Schultz, McQueary, etc.) while Freeh spoke to none of them. The investigation found no wrongdoing by Spanier or anyone at Penn State. Freeh knew this investigation was going on, and refused to acknowledge it.
-- Freeh is losing it.
After the Spanier verdict, Louis Freeh wrote a bizarre, rambling, inflammatory rant about Penn State and went public with it. In it, he bashes Penn State and its culture, and even manages to bash good ol Joe Paterno. It was so bizarre that news outlets took the statement down for a couple of hours so they could verify that it was actually from him. Freeh knows his goose is cooked. Spanier is suing him for defamation, and his case is strong. Freeh is cracking up, and should be. Not only did the report by the federal investigator blow massive holes in Freeh's report, but so did the proceedings in the Spanier trial.
The thing about Freeh that most people don't know is that he was paid $8 million by the PSU Board of Trustees to come up with justification for the Board's firing of Joe Paterno. So the goal was to pin this thing on the football program. NOT AT ALL COINCIDENTALLY, several members of the Board of Trustees at that time were BIG donors to....The Second Mile. NOTHING TO SEE THERE. Anyone find it odd that The Second Mile received zero scruitiny through this whole ordeal? In fact, the head of the Second Mile was called as a PROSECUTION witness in the Spanier trial. The guy that was in charge of a kids charity, who received the same reports that the PSU admins did regarding Sandusky, not only was not charged with anything, but he was a PROSECUTION WITNESS??!!??
--PSU finally showing signs of fighting back
The comments made by trustee Al Lord today are going to go over terribly in the media, but who cares? It shows that Penn State may finally fight back against this bullshit narrative that has hung over the school for the past 6 years. Word is that the testimony by the Sandusky "victim" during the Spanier trial has finally opened some eyes and shown that this whole thing was a big scam. Highlights from this "victim"'s story:
--His allegation of abuse is of a single incident. It was a shower with Jerry, where Jerry put soap on his back, and Jerry allegedly had a raging boner.
--His initial testimony to investigators was that the incident occurred the first time he met Jerry, in 1998.
--His testimony changed in the Sandusky trial, saying this incident occurred in the summer of 2001, because he remembered it was the summer before 9/11.
--His testimony changed again in the Spanier trial, saying this incident occurred in the summer of 2002, because he remembered it was the summer after 9/11.
--This con artist was paid $8 million by PSU, because his "abuse" took place after the McQueary shower incident in 2001, showing that Penn State could have stopped it!
--Spanier trial jury foreman admits jury blew it
The foreman came out today saying that he didn't think Spanier should have been convicted of anything at all in his trial. He was acquitted of the main charges (though you would never guess that by reading media reports), but was convicted of a misdemeanor child endangerment charge. Of the 14 felonies the State brought against the PSU admins, they got convictions on a grand total of ZERO. The myth of a Penn State conspiracy, cover-up, or anything at all untoward related to Sandusky was killed. Everything you read about this case back in 2001 and 2002 was wrong. It was nothing more than a bunch of self righteous media grandstanding bullshit.
