Three high profile principals have had to create websites of full record as a result of the willful charring actions of the (former) Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, Louis Freeh and the Penn State board of trustees.
There are the combustible vapors of well-placed grand jury leaks; violation of one’s right to due process; arrest by press conference; indictment and sentencing in the court of public opinion and a news media interested in salacious narratives by throwing gas on the fire.
“ ...false and defamatory statements about Dr. Spanier in the Freeh report commissioned by Penn State, as well as in press conferences and other post-report publicity efforts garnered by Freeh…addresses multiple breaches of contract by Penn State.”
“We remain mystified why the university and the NCAA are continuing to fight on every front to maintain the extreme secrecy about how they conducted their investigation in this matter that has such strong public interest. We believe the full record of what transpired between the University, Louis Freeh and the NCAA should be made public.”
“But if this can be done to me as attorney general, the chief law enforcement officer of the 5th largest state in the country, I am sickened to think what can and may be done to regular, good people who don’t have the resources that I have to challenge it.”
God help any of us everyday Jane or John Does if we were ever subject to such arson.
