Now Graham Spanier is Crushing the Freeh Report

Graham Spanier, the worst university president in the world, is fighting back.

On Sunday, Spanier, who holds a top secret government clearance, wrote a letter to the Penn State board that was obtained by ESPN. The screed, which presents no real evidence, is a strong condemnation of the findings in the Freeh Report. An excerpt:

It is unfathomable and illogical to think that a respected family sociologist and family therapist, someone who personally experienced massive and persistent abuse as a child, someone who devoted a significant portion of his career to the welfare of children and youth, including service on the boards of four such organizations, two as chair of the board, would have knowingly turned a blind eye to any report of child abuse or predatory sexual acts directed at children. As I have stated in the clearest possible terms, at no time during my presidency did anyone ever report to me that Jerry Sandusky was observed abusing a child or youth or engaged in a sexual act with a child or youth.

    Shut up SPANIER, you’re part of the problem scumbag!

    I get the visceral reaction to all things said by every member of the leadership that was sitting watch when this catastrophic collapse in judgment occurred, but what I don’t get is why they are not allowed to defend themselves? Every story has 2 sides. They have a right to be heard, even if you’ve already convicted them in your mind.

    “It is public knowledge that the district attorney decided there was no crime to pursue. I don’t understand how one could conclude from such evidence ‘concealment’ of a known child predator.”
    Yeah…..what about that?

  • Darby Dumbass July 23, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    Is that the district attorney that disappeared with no explanation?

  • Pete H. July 23, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Bill…that goes without saying. This is America, I think we all understand the concept of innocent until proven guilty. But it’s pretty obvious he’s guilty, so defending his right to an attorney is kind of a moot point and a distraction.

    Love Spainer’s reasoning there. It reminds me of those people that are like “I’m not racist! I have a black friend.”

    Spanier must know alot of info keeping his clearance.

    Freeh was a baffoon and still is. worst thing psu did was put that 6th grade book report out there before the trials could run their course. Freeh was also the go to for Gov Corbett since he can play politician and BOT member at the same time….fishy

  • where do these people come from? July 24, 2012 at 9:29 am

    The DA who declined to prosecute did so on the strength of the testimony of a psychologist who basically said: Nothing to see here, move along kids. Even though this testimony was directly contradictory to the DPW psychologist who concluded that Sandusky was in fact operating in a manner consistent with a pedophile grooming future victims.
    I guess Spanier was also unaware that the psychologist who got Sandusky off the hook proceeded to benefit from a PSU contract that totalled about $11,000 over the next five years.
    Spanier is full of shit. He’ll have his day in court. He’s an asshole for providing all this information for prosecutors to dissect and examine before he gives testimony.

    Somehow a person who dedicated “significant portion of his career to the welfare of children and youth” isn’t exactly reassuring, all things considered.
    Don’t victims of child abuse typically become abusers themselves?

    Mr Spanier supported a close relative in his studies in the Program Human Sexuality and thanks to this my relative deals with sexual deviations/deviants in Eastern Europe. I believe Mr Spanier would not disregard a child in need of help had he known there was a child molested.
