    Tie the payback to the football program, take 6 million a year and the interest out of a bond and have the football profits pay for that.  How hard is that to do?

     This suit is a stunt to show Corbett  "cares" about his reelection chances.. This the guy that was part of the external cover up as in refusing to pursue a detailed investigation, allowing a slow walk and the evidence to float away (never actively looking for witnesses or following up by his office.) It was a Federal case against Sandusky that was made, not Corbett's  footdragging and obstruction.

    And of course the complete sellout of the state of PA to the fossil trust frackers, including giving away the royalties, allowing their promises to substitute for a catastrophic fund, ignoring the impacts on the water table and withdrawals, allowing dumping and pollution  going forward, and then he claimed Pennsylvania should be happy with a few truck driving jobs and restaurant and hotel jobs. While Exxon will extract a billion dollars in the next couple of years.

    He should be subject to a severe verdict on his malfeasance, but we are not in tumbril France in the  1790's.

    •  If Penn State never spent a dollar beyond its (0+ / 0-)

      borders, there might be an argument of fungibility.  

      Otherwise, it's accounting -- account for the spending of taxpayers funds and we're done.

      It seems curiosity has killed the cat that had my tongue.
