PENN STATE ALWAYS THE GOOD SPORT
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said Tuesday he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over sanctions imposed against Penn State University in the child sexual abuse and cover-up scandal.
The NCAA sanctions, accepted by the university in July, included a $60 million fine to be used nationally to finance child abuse prevention grants. Penn State has made the first $12 million payment, and an NCAA task force is deciding how it can best be spent. The NCAA has said at least a quarter of the money would be spent in Pennsylvania. Congressional lawmakers from Pennsylvania have objected to using any of the Penn State fine to finance activities in other states.
Republican U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent called that an "unacceptable and unsatisfactory" response by the NCAA to a request from the state's U.S. House delegation that the whole $60 million be distributed to causes within the state. Last week, state Sen. Jake Corman, a Republican whose district includes Penn State's main campus, said he plans to seek court action barring any of the first $12 million from being released to groups outside the state.
Penn State had always been very happy and exceedingly quiet while its football team earned million of dollars playing all over the country with headliners ‘Sandusky and The Cover-ups’.
It seems reasonable to expect that they play a role in minimizing fondling, oral sex and anal rape nationally as well.
