Freeh Heads Penn State Probe, Madonna Sees Massive Cover-up

penn-state-logoFormer FBI Director Louis Freeh has been hired to lead Penn State’s investigation into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The Chair of Penn State’s Special Investigative Committee, Merck and Company President and CEO Ken Frazier, introduced him Monday in Philadelphia.  Freeh said the charges are extremely serious, and the investigation will go back to 1975, two years before Sandusky formed the Second Mile, a charity that works with troubled boys.  Sandusky is a former assistant football coach accused of molesting young boys on school property and elsewhere.  Frazier said Freeh has no prior connection to Penn State.

Meanwhile, Franklin and Marshall College Center for Politics and Public Affairs Director Terry Madonna says he has little doubt that people at Penn State knew about Sandusky’s alleged inclinations long before a grand jury report accused him of molesting young boys.

“I think there was a massive cover-up.  I read the presentment and try to read everything I can.  I don’t think this can go on for this long a time, with the innuendo and the accusations for a decade, and not have a cover-up.”

Doctor Madonna, who has spent most of his adult life on college campuses, says the Penn State case illustrates how big sports money at big schools has perverted the values of higher education.  Montgomery County State Representative Mike Vereb says Sandusky’s bail, of $100,000 unsecured with no cash required, is too low when you consider the seriousness of the charges.

“I’m not an attorney, but the bail is ridiculous.  Bail is only to prevent flight, but I think it also plays a role when it comes to the safety of other potential victims.  His house borders an elementary school, and the playground is on that side of the school.  I’m not saying he’s going to walk over to the playground, but it’s like putting an AA meeting next to a wine and spirits store or a beer distributor.  It just doesn’t make sense.”

Vereb says fired Penn State President Graham Spanier’s first reaction was to defend the men a grand jury accused of covering it up and to blame the victims.  He says that attitude, voiced and encouraged by Spanier, must change.  He appeared Friday on the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest, and Doctor Madonna appeared Monday.
