Tom Corbett Political Cartoon by Shawn Raymond
That Saturday, the day of the Penn State-Nebraska football game, former player Bob Capretto told ESPN he had a conversation with Corbett about the board’s actions to fire Paterno.
“And the governor said, 'I told them to do it,' " Capretto said. "He was proud of it. I told him, 'You don't realize what you have created here. The damage to Penn State is enormous.' "
In the Outside the Lines piece, Corbett is painted as zealous at the chance to play a role in the Penn State scandal.
Specifically, the report states, most members of the university’s Board of Trustees “felt uncomfortable with his role,” according to one unnamed trustee, who went on to refute that Corbett played a minor role in decision to dismiss Paterno and Spanier. http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/corbetts-camp-fires-back-at-espns-report-linking-him-to-paternos-firing-1039762/ Read more »
