According to Penn State News, the University of Penn State has settled with 26 victims for $49.7 million as a result of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. Officials state that the settlement amounts will not be funded by student tuition, taxpayer funds or donations, but rather by various liability insurance policies. The terms of the settlement include a confidentiality agreement. Sandusky is currently in prison after being found guilty on 45 counts of child sex charges including 25 felonies.
Penn State officials announced today (Oct. 28) that over the past few months the University has reached agreement with 26 of the victims of former assistant football coach Gerald Sandusky. The terms of the settlements, which include a release of all claims against Penn State and other parties, are subject to confidentiality agreements. Of the 26 settlements, 23 are fully signed and three are agreed in principle, with final documentation expected within the next few weeks.
The aggregate dollar amount paid by the University for the 26 settled claims is $59.7 million and will be reflected in the University’s audited financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2013.
“The Board of Trustees has had as one of its primary objectives to reach settlements in a way that is fair and respects the privacy of the individuals involved,” said Keith Masser, chair of the Board of Trustees. “This is another important milestone in accomplishing that goal. I would like to thank the board’s Legal and Compliance Committee, as well as its Legal Subcommittee for its leadership throughout this process.”
As reported at USA Today, PSU President Rodney Erickson called the agreements “another step forward in the healing process for those hurt by Mr. Sandusky, and another step forward for Penn State.”
Harrisburg lawyer Ben Andreozzi, who represents nine of the victims, said he was pleased with the settlements.
“Obviously no amount of money can compensate for what these young men have gone through,” he said. “But Penn State has given them the resources — financially and counseling — they need to help them recover.”
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, October 16, 2013 – Ex-San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Pleads Guilty to One Charge of False Imprisonment & Two Counts of Battery
- Disgraced Bob Filner pleaded guilty to charges involving 3 women; one charge of false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery. “Filthy” Filner finally resigned effective August 30, 2013, even though back in July he did not believe he was guilty of any sexual harassment of woman. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Listen to the podcast below.
Under the plea agreement, Filner will not serve any time behind bars but will spend three months in home confinement, give up most of his mayoral pension and promise never to run for office again.
Filner will also undergo treatment as “directed by a mental health professional” during his three years of probation.
Carlos Danger and Client 9 Come Up Short … Weiner & Eliot Spitzer Lose in Last Night in NYC’s Mayoral & Comptoller Democrat Primary (Update: Weiner Flips Reporter the Bird
Thank you New York City for not embarrassing yourselves. Now both of you, please go away for good! A note to Weiner and Spitzer, sex scandals do matter …
Carlos Danger and Client 9 lose.
Carlos Danger, oops Anthony Weiner was crushed last night in the Democrat Mayoral primary, losing to De Blasio. Weiner finished a distant last place 5th and only received 4.9% of the vote in the Democratic primary. Personally, it is rather head scratching that Weiner managed to get nearly 5% of the vote. However, the day was not without it’s typical and pathetic antics coming from the Weiner campaign as Sydney Leathers, former sexting partner of Anthony Weiner, attempted to crash his election night party, Weiner’s ridiculous concession speech and his final parting shot of a one finger salute. WEINER … GO AWAY!!!
New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, who began his campaign as a long-shot but surfed a late wave of momentum by tapping into liberal anxiety over the three-term administration of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, overwhelmed his opponents on Tuesday to finish first in the city’s Democratic mayoral primary.
With results still being counted late Tuesday evening, de Blasio, the city’s public advocate, was bobbing around the 40% mark needed to avoid a three-week runoff race for the Democratic nomination.
And in the classy tone that Weiner has run this ridiculous campaign to be Mayor of NYC, as a parting shot, Weiner flipped the media the middle finger (see pic here) as he hopefully has faded into the sunset for good. Thankfully, Weiner’s 3 ring circus has come to an end.
Eliot Spitzer, also known as client #9 and the disgraced former Governor of New York also lost his bid for political redemption last night as he was defeated in the Democratic primary for New York City comptroller by the current Manhattan borough president, Scott M. Stringer. With 97% of the precincts reporting early Wednesday, Stringer was ahead 52.1% to 47.9%.
“I am proud to have run a campaign over the past nine weeks that many thought was incapable to mount,” said Mr. Spitzer, who was subdued but not emotional. “We did it in a way that made me proud to revisit the issues we fought for when I was attorney general and governor, to lay out an agenda of what we believed was right for this great city.”
“I say to the public, I am proud to have served,” he continued.
A special thank you to the people of New York City who collectively told both of the pervs, Weiner and Spitzer, to take a hike and GO AWAY!
San Diego Mayor Bob “Filthy” Filner Resigns … Plays the Victim and Blames “Media, their Political Agents & Lynch Mobs” … Not the Fact he was a Serial Sexual Harasser
GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH … UNBELIEVABLE RESIGNATION SPEECH BY SERIAL MISOGYNIST BOB FILNER.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner resigns and gives a speech that shows what a pathetic and miserable individual he truly is. His resignation is effective August 30, however, it can’t come soon enough. After he said that he takes responsibility for his disgusting actions, he then played the victim cared and put the blame on the”media and their political agents”. Good grief.
Filner even went so far as to say the following reprehensible comment that there was “a lynch mob mentality, rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment which have led to demands of my resignation and recall.” Filner went on to say that he faced “a lynch mob”. Sorry Bob, but you faced your disgusting behavior. And if you claim you did nothing wrong, why are you apologizing and why did you go to rehab? From what it sounds like, this Democrat politician is saying that the multitude of woman who have come forward to say that they were sexual harassed by Filner are lying. Is that you you are saying Bob? BTW, everyone wanted you out, especially Democrats who had egg on their face with their talking points of the GOP war on woman when they had a serial misogynist in their midst.
Transcript from the Washington Free Beacon:
BOB FILNER: [...] Now I have to caution the council about one thing, the city. I started my political career facing lynch mobs. I think we have just faced one here in San Diego. You are going to have to deal with that. A lynch mob mentality, rumors become allegations, allegations become facts, facts become evidence of sexual harassment which have led to demands of my resignation and recall. Not one allegation, members of the council, has been verified or proven in court. I have never sexually harassed anyone. But the hysteria that has been created and many of you helped defeat is the hysteria of a lynch mob. Now, as I said I faced lynch mobs many times when I was younger. No evidence was needed. The mob knew who was guilty. Who needed due process? Ladies and gentlemen, democracy needs due process. San Diego needs due process. Those of you in the media and politics who fed this hysteria, I think need to look at what you helped do because you have unleashed a monster. I think we will pay for this, a front to democracy for a long time. Now the hysteria plays into the hands of those who want a political coup. The removal of a democratically elected mayor purely by rumor. Now I am responsible for providing ammunition. I did that. I take full responsibility. But they are who pointed the gun. And the media and their political agents pulled the trigger. That, ladies and gentlemen, is not what democracy is about. I was elected to make changes. People opposed me from the beginning. They found the weapons they needed in my own failures as a human being, but they found those weapons and they used them in a bloody and vicious way. So, you’re going to have to deal with that, if you care about democracy. What I would like to leave you with is what I started my campaign on, and that is a vision of what this city ought to be and what we can become. [...]
Hey Bob, don’t ask for things they might just come true. Trust me, there will be criminal and civil investigations into your conduct and you will be spending the next 10 years in court for your actions. Just wow. After reading that denial speech my suggestion to Filner is that you go back into therapy permanently. What a drama queen. These people think that they are so important and their visions are so important, that they are about the law and moral conduct. Sick, sick, sick.
Weasel Zippers says, good grief, just leave already … “Oh please. “Well organized interests” out to take down democracy and push a coup to take Filner out? He says he will keep pushing for a “progressive world”. Well organized interests and a lynch mob forced this perv out of office, really? His actions were so sleazy and in such mass that even DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz long with California US Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer asked him to resign. Were they part of the “lynch mob” as well?
No Shoes, No Shirts … No Bob Filner: San Diego Hooters Restaurants Refuse to Serve Democrat, Sexually Harassing Mayor
HA, even Hooter’s has its standards … Hooters in San Diego, CA area won’t serve womanizer Democrat SD Mayor Bob Filner.
You know its bad for you as a politician when Hooters restaurants won’t serve you because they are taking a “stand for the fair treatment of women”. Hooters restaurants in the San Diego area have decided not to serve serial womanizer, gropers, and sexual harasser, Democrat Mayor Bob Filner. Oh, the irony. The restaurant franchise that is known for this scantily clad, busty, and lets face it folks, extremely hot girls who are more than flirtatious appear to have their standards. Oh yea, and the hot wings are good too! But the difference being, waitresses at Hooters agree to wear the outfit, the woman who were at the end of Filner’s unwanted sexual harassment never signed up for this creeps exploitation.
Hmm, does anyone remember if the banned President Bill Clinton as well?
According to the manager of that restaurant, all of the Hooters locations in the city (Rancho Bernardo is in the zone) have taken up this policy. “The signs went up at our four locations in San Diego this morning,” said Melissa Fry, director of marketing for HootWinc, the west coast Hooters franchise. “It’s not a political move for us in any way, shape, or form. We’re strictly taking a stand for the fair treatment of women.
Here is a much better pic of the sign flanked by two of Hooters finest servers
Meanwhile, Hot Air reports that the perv Mayor Filner refuses to do the right thing and step down. Instead, this brain dead, consumed with power, out of touch Democrat politician says, he is moving forward.
We must, he says, continue to “move forward.”
Here’s the real significance of the Filner saga: It’s honestly difficult to decide which is more pathological, his approach to women or his approach to power. It’d be one thing if he was claiming innocence and was determined not to be muscled out of office on a trumped-up charge, but he’s not claiming that.
So let’s get this correct … a frigging rodeo clown gets fired from his job and banned for life from the Missouri State Fair and this sleaze bag, serious sexual harasser Filner keeps his job.? What has happened to the country I grew up in?
Former Anthony Weiner Female Voter Rips Weiner a New One in Brooklyn the Way His Wife Huma Should Have after Sexting Scandal … “One person yelling isn’t going to stop me!” … Wanna Bet?
WEINER GETS HAMMERED IN BROOKLYN!!!
Ever wonder what Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma should have done to the cheating, sleazy, pervy Weiner? Enter Jane Borock, a woman who formerly voted for Anthony Weiner and who have him a piece of her mind during Weiner’s trip to Brooklyn. Borock went on a tirade on Weiner and was just relentless. The fired up woman let him have it, Brooklyn style … “F*ck you! Go back to your little Hamptons house.”
You are disgusting! You are an embarrassment of a third-generation native,” said Jane Borock, 35, as she waded into a meet-and-greet with voters in a plaza bordering Atlantic Avenue. “Your little overnight sleepover in public housing. F*ck you! Go back to your little Hamptons house.”
Mr. Weiner, still playfully quizzing a mother and a young girl, tried to calm the woman down. “You’re very passionate. I appreciate your view.”
“I’m passionate? More passionate than you on Twitter. I’m a social media expert. Get someone to handle your shit! You are disgusting. Disgusting,” she railed. Ms. Borock, wielding a camera phone, then turned to the press surrounding her. “And fuck you all for covering …”
“Whoa! Whoa,” said Mr. Weiner, growing angry. “You’ve got little kids here. You’ve got little kids here … just don’t curse.”
“Little kids?! You have NO right to talk about little kids … Talking about little kids? Social media? You wanna see some Twitter action?” she demanded.
“Relax,” he told her.
“Don’t tell me to relax,” she scolded back. “Don’t tell me about anything.”
Anthony Weiner Sexting Partner Sydney Leathers Continues Her 15 Minutes of Fame as Sge Trips Naked for ‘Sex Tape’
Who saw this coming, but everyone ... It would appear that Anthony Weiner’s sexting partner Sydney Leathers wants to cash in on her 15 minutes of
fame infamy with a sex tape …
Talk about water seeking it’s own level. Sydney Leathers is no victim of Anthony Weiner in this pathetic sexting scandal. She is a complicit, selfish, attention seeking narcissist herself. The more she talks, the more we realize she is just as much of an attention seeking low life as he is. One would think that after getting caught up in the salacious scandal, that you would take the Southwest Airline ad suggestion of “Wanna Get Away’. But not for Sydney Leathers. So what does she do when caught up in this disgusting and embarrassing sexting scandal with NYC mayoral candidate, and former US Rep. Anthony Weiner? Why make a sex tape of course.
It just further shows that some people have no shame and once and for all, there is no one wearing a white hat in this pathetic story. Live it up while you can Sydney, because you will only regret this decision for the rest of your life.
Pic – NY Post: So this is what Weiner ruined his career comeback over?
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for an epic shock — Anthony Weiner’s sexting partner Sydney Leathers has filmed a hardcore masturbation porn … and TMZ has some pics from the shoot.
Yeah, we saw it coming — Sydney paid a visit to Vivid porn HQ in L.A. just days ago … and Vivid’s fearless leader, Steve Hirsch, isn’t one to waste time.
We’ve seen the flick, so we’ll paint you a picture. Leathers gets naked, strikes a bunch of stereotypical porn poses, and away she goes … strumming the old banjo.
I’m back, Clinton’s blast from the past …
Move over Anthony ‘Carlos Danger’ Weiner, the king of political perv is back. Talk about a blast from the past. According to Radar Online, The National Enquirer is set to publish details of a Monica Lewinsky sex tape that she recorded for Bill Clinton during their inappropriate affair. You remember, when President Bill Clinton was telling us that he did not have sex with that woman [a White House intern], miss Lewinsky, not a single time. No wonder the Clinton’s have been upset with Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma for the latest sex scandal and all the references back to Bubba’s sordid sex scandals with Monica Lewinsky back in the day when Bill Clinton was president.
Let’s face it America, when it comes to sex scandals Weiner’s sexting pales in comparison to Bill Clinton’s sex with an intern as President. There is no comparison, yet we have hypocritical Democrats calling for Weiner to drop out of the NY’s mayor race but they defended Clinton to the high heavens saying that it was a person matter. Hmm … no double standard here is there?
A sex tape that Monica Lewinsky recorded for Bill Clinton at the height of their scandalous affair has leaked, during which the former White House intern is heard planning a secret sexual rendezvous with the president and declaring she is “too cute and adorable” to be ignored.
On the audio tape obtained by The National Enquirer, Lewinsky at one point tries to seduce the commander in chief: “I could take my clothes off and start… well… I know you wouldn’t enjoy that? I hope to see you later and I hope you will follow my script and do what I want.”
Lewinsky, who turned 40 last week, made the three-minute, 47 second recording in November 1997 and addressed it to “handsome.”
Weasel Zippers asks, I would love to know who leaked this tape, the timing surrounding the Weiner scandals are uncanny.
Weiner Shrinks to 4th in Polls … Disgraced Prostitute Scandal Gov. Spitzer Says He Will Not Vote for Fellow Democrat Sexting Scandal Plagued Anthony Weiner
Could the Democrat Party get any more bizarre? Just curious, does purchasing the services of a prostitute trump sexting?
Weiners poll numbers in free-fall. As more and more sordid sexting details come out regarding NYC mayoral candidate and former disgraced US Representative Anthony Weiner, his poll numbers shrink. Following the stories that Weiner continued sexting young girls after he was caught in his first scandal,
Carlos Danger Weiner has now slipped to fourth place in the polls in the Democrat primary for NYC mayor. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, Weiner has dropped to just 16%, down 10% from just five days. According to RCP, Weiner is pretty much done, put a fork in him. However, at this point Weiner is going no where as he is pot committed and his ego is going to make him stay in the race and lose as opposed to have yet another embarrassing presser explaining his withdrawal from the race.
New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner has dropped to fourth place in a poll released on Monday, but Weiner has vowed to forge ahead nevertheless.
A new poll of likely Democratic voters taken by Quinnipiac University shows the disgraced former congressman trailing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former city comptroller Bill Thompson.
In addition, the poll shows that a majority of likely voters — 53 percent — think Weiner should step aside in light of recent revelations of another sexting scandal.
Quinn leads the Democratic pack with 27 percent, with 21 percent for de Blasio, 20 percent for Thompson, 6 percent for Comptroller John Liu and 2 percent for former Council member Sal Albanese, the poll finds. Seven percent of likely Democratic primary voters remain undecided.
Ha, Eliot Spitzer, the voice of the moral majority and ethics speak out against Weiner
But it gets even more bizarre, if possible. Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who was forced to resign from office because of his prostitute scandal. Wow, talk about the pot calling the kettle immoral. So Spitzer says he will not support or vote for Weiner. Really? Does Spitzer even have the right to weigh in on anything that has to do with a sex scandal? Dude, last time I checked buying prostitutes as a governor (Client #9) trumps sexting. This might be one of the most hypocritical double standards ever. Spitzer is currently running for comptroller of NYC. What makes him think that he has the moral or ethical background for that position?
Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer doesn’t think Anthony Weiner should be mayor of New York City.
Asked by host Chris Matthews Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” who he would vote for in the mayoral election, Spitzer was hesitant to answer. Matthews pressed Spitzer, saying “You’re not going to vote for Anthony Weiner, can you just say that now? You don’t think he should be mayor of New York.”
“I think the answer is yes,” Spitzer said. “We have had a number of instances over the years where inevitably, of course, municipal employees, state employees have used computers and the like for improper purposes and there is an appropriate sanction for that and there should be.”
From CNN, comes the following comments from Spitzer’s opponent in the Democratic race for city comptroller, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer:
“It’s clear that Eliot Spitzer thinks there are two standards – one for him, and one for everybody else. His comments are the height of hypocrisy,” Stringer’s campaign said in a statement.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, the ultimate double standard and hypocrisy …
The New York Post is reporting that Bill and Hillary Clinton are livid, peeved and mad as hell at the comparisons that are being made to Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and Anthony Weiner’s sexting to females and his wife Huma’s forgiveness of his transgressions. REALLY? Sorry, but Weiner’s actions may be pervy and completely disgusting, but do they really rise to the level of
high crimes and misdemeanors what Bill “Bubba” Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office? We will not even get into the “cigar” discussion. Bill and Hillary are mad at the comparisons, who do you think set the bar so low for politicians to come? Lest we remind everyone that it was Slick Willy who had sex with a 22 year old intern. It was Hillary Clinton who taught Huma how to “stand by your man” for political expediency.
Just curious, when did sexting become worse than sex with a 22 year old intern in the White House? Hmm, How does anyone top that? Sorry, if Bill Clinton was allowed to stay in office and the Democrats did not think his judgement was out of line, how can they say anything different about Anthony Weiner?
How come what was good for Bill Clinton is not the same for Anthony Weiner?
Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.
“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.
Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.
“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It is thanks to Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton that today it seems that Americans care less that their politicians act like dogs in heat and their spouses just accept it. The Gateway Pundit has pics of better times between the two “dirty old men” when Bubba attended a Weiner fundraiser. And even more folly of Bill and Hillary turning on Weiner. Obviously there is only room enough for one morally bankrupt male Democrat in the party and his name is Bubba Clinton.
