Patch Poll: Should New PA Attorney General Kane Investigate Corbett's Handling of Penn State Scandal?
Kathleen Kane has vowed to determine if politics played a role in the development of the case against Jerry Sandusky and other Penn State officials.
Many political observers suggest that Kathleen Kane's election as Pennsylvania's first female Attorney General was due in no small part to her promise to investigate whether politics played a role in the evolution of the case against convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky and other Penn State officials.
“As soon as she began early in her campaign talking about the promise to investigate it objectively, it spread pretty quickly on a grass-roots level. There’s no doubt that she had a lot of Penn State support,” Maribeth Schmidt of the grass-roots alumni group Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship told the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
Kane also dedicated an entire section of her campaign web site to the Sandusky case.
Governor Tom Corbett, a Republican who oversaw the Sandusky investigation when he was Pennsylvania's attorney general, has said repeatedly that politics were not involved in the investigation and did not affect its pace. He suggests Democrats and the media that keep reporting it were stirring the controversy of his handling of the case.
So we want to know what you think? Should Kane launch an investigation into Corbett's building of the case against Jerry Sandusky, or should the attorney general office's resources be used elsewhere?
