Corbett “Very Disappointed” with Penn State Admin

Tom Corbett spoke in Harrisburg this morning, and offered his preliminary two cents on the findings of the Freeh report, which was released last Thursday. He said that he’s only read two-thirds of the report, which weighs in at 267 pages.

The governor said that he thought the Freeh investigation was a “thorough” job and, according to The Patriot-News, he refused to discuss the findings in great detail until he had talked to the Board of Trustees. However, he did issue his admonition of Graham Spanier, saying, “I am very disappointed in the lack of forthcoming evidence to the subpoena that was given to them by the attorney general’s office.”

Corbett would not comment on the future of the Joe Paterno statue, the employment statuses of Spanier and Tim Curley (both are still employed by Penn State), or a potential death penalty for Penn State football.

Corbett holds a particularly precarious position, as a Trustee of Penn State and as the former Attorney General of Pennsylvania, which has prompted questions as to whether he could or should have prosecuted Sandusky earlier.
