The Wisconsin 14 got me back into politics and the Pennsylvania 112 is making me laugh at Politics. I am still in shock after reading an email from Keystone Progress in regards to the PA House Republican walkout to prevent http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/billinfo/billinfo.cfm?syear=2011&sind=0&body=H&type=R&bn=0520">HB520>, a bill which calls for a probe into Governor Corbett's handling of the investigation of Jerry Sandusky during his term as Attorney General.

As a Liberal who for God knows why voted for Tom Corbett in 2010, I would like to know if The Attorney Generals office was complicate in the cover up. I don't see HB520 as being a political measure, I see it as the duty of our elected officials to find the truth.

What are the House Republicans afraid of? If Tom Corbett turned a blind eye to protect Penn State, or his own involvement with Sandusky he needs to be held accountable. If the Attorney Generals office did not take part in a cover up; Thank God, we can move on.

In her blog for the Philadelphia Weekly, Tara Murtha stated:

According to Briggs ((Rep.  Tim Brigs is the sponsor of HB520), the  investigating Grand Jury report on Sandusky found there were credible allegations of sexual abuse lodged against Sandusky as far back as 1998, yet it was years before the criminal complaint was filed by the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General and Sandusky was finally arrested in November 2011. While these allegations were pending, Sandusky continued to have contact with minors, putting them at risk of sexual abuse.

I hope the Pennsylvania House GOP will allow the bill to succeed and an independent investigation to begin. Unless they would be happy to join the many other good people who chose to protect their own hides, rather then do what is right.
