Why Didn't Tom Corbett Stop Jerry Sandusky?

Will Gov. Tom Corbett's role in the Sandusky investigation continue to haunt him when he seeks re-election?

Columnist and investigative reporter Chris Freind, a longtime supporter of Gov. Tom Corbett, has penned an open letter to the state leader asking tough questions about the Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal.

Freind says Corbett refuses to answer disturbing questions about his role as attorney general in investigating Sandusky.

Freind contends that Corbett could have stopped Sandusky, but didn't.

Corbett is too busy worrying about corporate money, rather than the welfare of people; for example, he thinks "fracking" on college campuses is okay which shows he has no regard for public education or the sanctity of education for all. www.firebrandcentral.com

Here's one that Corbett tried to pull.... Not saying the district, but after budget was all said and done just not singed yet, he waited till all the union big wigs left town to go to a convention of sorts and decided at the last minute to write in a new law that with a 5-4 vote from the school board, any school within the district could be turned into a charter school. Effectively making all teacher contracts null and void. Luckily one union head stayed back just to make sure everything would get signed and caught this. Not even the higher ups knew he was doing this. He is a very sneaky man and should be immediately removed if this is how he conducts business. He has millions tucked away for a rainy day fund, but do any of us know how he's using it?

He stopped it, but how many years later after the fact? If he knew about it when the actions were taking place, how come it took this many years to get Sandusky thrown in jail?

You're just plain wrong. Thorough and complete investigation? Corbett received over $647,000 in campaign contributions from members of the Second Mile Foundation, while only assigning one investigator to the case. How is that thorough and complete? It's not even ethical!
