Editorial: Don't reduce the Penn State fine
$60 million -- That's the fine the NCAA imposed on Penn State in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal that Gov. Tom Corbett now wants a federal court to throw out. What an odious request. Corbett said in a suit filed Wednesday that the fine and other penalties harm those who had nothing to do with the football coach's crimes. But top school officials turned a blind eye to the heinous abuse for years. The penalties also send an important message to officials everywhere that a similar cover-up will cost them big-time. Pay up.
