So this is getting very interesting. These charges mean Gov. Corbett and his former AG’s staff can be called as witnesses about the Sandusky case:
“These charges are the work of a vindictive and politically motivated governor working through an un-elected attorney general, Linda Kelly, whom he appointed to do his bidding and who will be a lame duck five days from now.”
Mr. Spanier’s attorneys accuse the governor of “manipulating public officials and resources to settle a personal score” against their client.
Mr. Lewis said as an example that he has witnesses who will testify that after the Penn State board of trustees’ meeting when Mr. Spanier resigned last November that Mr. Corbett and his staff were seen celebrating Mr. Spanier’s departure at a State College restaurant.
“We also have been made aware that Corbett was furious that Dr. Spanier was seen hosting his opponent for governor, Dan Onorato, in the president’s box at a home football game during the campaign,” Mr. Lewis said.
