The First Two Fall

After the Board of Trustees met last night, Curley has requested administrative leave and Schultz has retired.

From The Altoona Mirror front page:
Two top Penn State officials charged with covering up allegations of an explosive child-sex abuse scandal related to a former defensive coordinator stepped down late Sunday after an emergency meeting of the university's Board of Trustees.
Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley requested to be placed on administrative leave so he could devote the time needed to defend himself against perjury and other charges, university President Graham Spanier said. Gary Schultz, vice president for finance and business, will step down and go back into retirement, Spanier said. He declined to comment to reporters after the meeting.
Resignations of famed football coach Joe Paterno and Spanier weren't discussed at the meeting, which was arranged Sunday and lasted two hours, university spokesman Bill Mahon said.
This snowball is just starting to roll . . .

Paterno is getting a pass. The grad assistant testified to the grand jury that after he witnessed Sandusky rape a young boy in the shower, he told Paterno about it.

Paterno did inform the Athletic Director, but after that nothing was done about Sandusky and he spent the next decade abusing children.

Paterno is being protected in similar fashion as Sandusky was before.

Instead of protecting these pedophile coddling coaches, the children should be protected.
