This morning brings more woe for Penn. State University (PSU). Prosecutors reveal they are today filing charges against former president Graham Spanier. Spanier is widely suspected as leader of the conspiracy that covered up former football coach, Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of boys at Penn State. Sandusky is now serving 30 to 60 years in state prison. Questions are being asked whether state prosecutors will indict PSU climatologist, Michael Mann, too.
NBC’s Michael Isikoff reports, “Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly and state Police Commissioner Frank Noonan have scheduled a news conference in the state capital of Harrisburg to announce what the sources describe as a major new development in the case. “ But this sorry web of criminal conspiracy may soon trap another PSU bad boy climatologist, Michael Mann. As I reported recently, there are eerie similarities in the way Spanier dealt with complaints against Sandusky and Mann.
The news will be a huge worry for Mann who last week rendered himself liable to criminal charges for perjury after the Nobel Committee affirmed he lied about being a Nobel Peace Prize winner in sworn statements in two high profile libel suits. Mann’s employer has spent the last week removing all reference to Mann’s counterfeit claims from PSU publications and website.
Investigative reporter, Ed Farnan contacted me to advise: “I have a call into the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office to see if they are looking in to the Climate science dept. as it was always under the protective wing of Graham Spanier.” So get out the popcorn, pull up a ringside seat and watch the next stage of this epic slow motion train wreck spill out.
