McQueary's Email: Public Corruption at Penn State?
It is evident to any legal observer that the email published today by a friend of Mike McQueary is likely leading to an investigation by the Department of Justice of The Pennsylvania State University, the State College police department and every official from the Board of Trustees to Joe Paterno.
Mike McQueary is the star witness for the prosecutors of Jerry Sandusky, who allegedly raped eight boys, and friends, who allegedly covered it up with paperwork. Mr. McQueary allegedly witnessed Mr. Sandusky raping an eight year old boy and allegedly told police about the incident.
The email by Mr. McQueary said that he “did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police.” If these allegations are true that Mr. McQueary did go to the police and the police did in fact do nothing about it.
Public Corruption, generally, involves government officials and private citizens working with officials who violate the public trust by benefiting personally from official actions or inaction. This can be found on any United States Department of Justice website for the Attorney's Office.
Clearly, in this case if the allegations are true, then the public trust was allegedly violated by government officials (Police and Penn State officials) as they personally benefited through Retirement and Pension Plans when they allegedly took inaction. Moreover, this may include the legendary and hall of fame football coach, Joe Paterno. Perhaps this is why Mr. Paterno has “lawyer-ed up.”
