According to the Washington Post, Graham Spanier, President of Penn State during the cover-up of Jerry Sandusky’s string of sexual assaults of boys, will be indicted today. According to CBS Philly the charges include: perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children and conspiracy. (Update- he was indicted).
After Sandusky’s arrest in November 2011 Spanier was forced to resign. Unfortunately for Spanier, Penn State’s trustees, once they were properly informed about the scandal, proceeded to clean house.
Spanier is the only identified Jew in this scandal. If Spanier were in any of the ultra orthodox mosdos he would have been shielded and today’s arrest would have been followed by a pidyon shvuyim kol koreh! Jews are supposed to be ohr lagoyim but the main strategy is keeping everyone in the dark.
