Hundreds of Emails Could be Incriminating in Sandusky Scandal

08.15.14 |

Governor Tom Corbett's administration hasn't decided whether to appeal an order that would reveal hundreds of emails sent amid the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. The PA office of open records on Wednesday told the State Department of Education to release 644 pages of email messages sent by top Corbett aides, Penn State University board members and the Governor to former Education Secretary Ron Tomalis. A 2002 Penn State alumnus, Ryan Bagwell, sought the documents as part of an ongoing open records campaign to illuminate how the school dealt with the Sandusky scandal. State officials have 30 days to appeal the order. Penn State has not said whether it will object.
