Penn St – Jerry Sandusky Sex Scandal: Two Top PSU Officials, Tim Curley Gary Schultz Step Down … Joe Paterno Says, “We Were All Fooled”
NOT SO HAPPY VALLEY … PSU UNDER A CLOUD OF SEXUAL ASSAULT SCANDAL AND COVER UP …
The shoes are beginning to drop in the aftermath of the child sex abuse scandal that has rocked Penn St. University. Two top PSU officials stepped down Sunday. Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, vice president for finance and business, stepped down Sunday night following an emergency Board of Trustees meeting.
Two top Penn State officials charged with covering up allegations of an explosive child-sex abuse scandal related to former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky stepped down late Sunday after an emergency meeting of the university’s Board of Trustees.
Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley requested to be placed on administrative leave so he could devote the time needed to defend himself against perjury and other charges, university President Graham Spanier said. Gary Schultz, vice president for finance and business, will step down and go back into retirement, Spanier said. He declined to comment to reporters after the meeting.
The resignations follow the shocking allegations of sexual abuse of teen boys and younger on the part of former defensive football coach Jerry Sandusky. The charges against him cover the period from 1994 to 2009. Sandusky was arrested on Saturday and released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts.
Head football coach and legend Joe Paterno said, “We Were All Fooled.”
“If this is true, we were all fooled, along with scores of professionals trained in such things, and we grieve for the victims and their families. They are in our prayers,” Paterno in a statement issued Sunday evening by his son, Scott.
In this case the cover up is not worse than the crime, because it appears the criminal allegations are pretty damn bad. Although the cover up is reprehensible.
