Not long after the Paterno family condemned whoever is leaking emails from the Sandusky affair investigations to the media, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett made a similar statement at a news conference in Harrisburg.
“I’m upset to see something’s come out piecemeal like that. I’m not sure where it came from. But I never think it’s a good move if information is leaked out,” said Corbett.
Corbett, as you might recall, was Pennsylvania’s attorney general at the start of the investigation.
The Paterno family has asked for all the emails to be released, not just the few that were reported by CNN. Presumably, there could be information in the remaining emails that would exonerate the late head coach. Then again, there might not. No one knows but the three remaining players, Spanier, Curley, and Schultz.
Corbett declined to get involved in that issue, stating that the Freeh report was due before the start of the new academic year. “Let’s find out what happens there,” he said.
Spanier also wanted all of the emails released to him by the university, and he has filed suit to obtain them.
