The Saga of the Penn State mess continues with what appears the retaliation attempts of the University to get the fella that called attention to
This always tends to happen in sports, as they don't care about right and wrong, but only about how to keep the money flowing. A very similar thing
happens in religions to keep up a spirit derived from false ideals.
This is the story of Mike McQueary and the lawsuit for whistleblower type protection for his reporting criminal acts, which is appeared a large part
of how these problems continue and grow into monsters.
Mike McQueary files whistleblower lawsuit vs. Penn State
The lawsuit discloses that shortly after Sandusky was charged, the university's then-president, Graham Spanier, met with athletic department staff
inside the university's football stadium and expressed his support for athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz, who had been
charged with perjury and failure to properly report suspected child abuse in the Sandusky case. Spanier also issued a public statement with the same
The lawsuit said McQueary, placed on administrative leave Nov. 11, learned his contract was not being renewed, meaning he was no longer a university
employee, from a news conference held in July by the university's new president, Rodney Erickson. He said his salary last year was $140,000 and his
future earnings as a coach would amount to at least $4 million.
He alleges he was let go because he cooperated with investigators, testified at the preliminary hearing for Curley and Schultz and is expected to be a
prime witness against them at trial. He wants reinstatement, a bowl bonus he lost while on leave, legal fees, back pay and benefits through the
Sandusky trial, among other things.
This sort of intimindation and cover up issue is common on lots of criminal issues, and the tendency of sports people to tell lies appears all too
often. A lesser case was the huge lies of Coach Bruce Pearl that drew in all his coaching staff and eventually got all them fired and tied into the
Atheletic Director, Mike Hamilton, leaving due to the heat he was getting for continual screw ups.
There will be more to come on Penn. State and Oct. 9 will be the Sandusky sentencing being released.
