  •  Schwartz needs a crisp message on this. (6+ / 0-)

    She could fumble this issue if she is not careful, and could equally antagonize the pro-Penn State / pro Joe Paterno voters.

    Corbett can be faulted for two things:

    - his lack of timeliness of the initial investigation of Sandusky's crimes while Corbett was state attorney general.

    He can also be faulted for his cavalier treatment of a 61-year employee of the University.  Someone who has worked that long and hard for the University for 61 years deserved better than how he was treated by the Board (including Corbett as a member of the Board).  Corbett and the Board did not even offer Paterno an opportunity to speak to the allegations.   He deserved due process before his termination.
