COMMENT: In a previous post, we noted indications that some of the emerging child molestation scandals might be linked and, in turn, that they might be connected to the Vatican.
One of the unfolding cases we highlighted was the Penn State case, where former [football] defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been convicted of molesting young boys.
In addition to Opus Dei-connected Rick Santorum, Sandusky’s Second Mile Foundation was endorsed by George H.W. Bush, for whom CIA headquarters is named. (Bush’s name surfaced frequently in connection with the allegations contained in The Franklin Cover-Up, covered in FTR #318.)
In addition, the late Penn State football head coach Joe Paterno hired counsel who represented Bush during the Iran-Contra affair. (Not just “anyone” would have been selected to represent the former head of the CIA in connection with the Iran-Contra affair–J. Sedgwick Sollers can be assumed to be an “inside player.”
Of note, as well, is the fact that Ray Gricar, a DA investigating the molestation allegations against Sandusky, disappeared from the face of the earth–his car was fished out of a river. His corpse was never found.
EXCERPT: Facing investigation by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office and the likelihood of civil lawsuits by the alleged sexual abuse victims of his former defensive coordinator, Joe Paterno has hired a high-powered Washington criminal defense lawyer to represent him, according to an NBC News report, citing a source close to Paterno.
J. Sedgwick Sollers, who once represented President George H.W. Bush in the Iran-Contra affair, was hired by Paterno on Thursday to represent the embattled coaching legend in the case against Jerry Sandusky, who faces 40 counts of sexual abuse of at least eight boys.
The Daily News reported Thursday that Paterno could be named as a defendant in the slew of victim lawsuits that are expected to be filed in the coming months. . . .
EXCERPT: . . . .U.S. President George H. W. Bush praised the group as a “shining example” of charity work in a 1990 letter, one of that president’s much-promoted “Thousand points of light” encouragements to volunteer community organizations. . . .
EXCERPT: One of the questions surrounding the sex-abuse case against Jerry Sandusky is why a former district attorney chose not to prosecute the then-Penn State assistant coach in 1998 after reports surfaced that he had inappropriate interactions with a boy.
The answer is unknowable because of an unsolved mystery: What happened to Ray Gricar, the Centre County, Pa., district attorney?
Gricar went missing in April 2005. The murky circumstances surrounding his disappearance — an abandoned car, a laptop recovered months later in a river without a hard drive, his body was never found. . . .
. . . “No one got a bye with Ray,” said Anthony De Boef, who worked as an assistant district attorney under Gricar for five years. “He didn’t care who you were; he had a job to do.”
De Boef said Gricar did not share any information with him about the case in 1998, which involved Sandusky allegedly showering with an 11-year-old boy. Gricar, he said, reviewed the police reports in private including, presumably, notes or recordings of two conversations that the police heard between Sandusky and the boy’s mother. But Gricar had a reputation for thoroughness, and if he thought he had enough to charge Sandusky, he would have, De Boef and other lawyers said.
Still, the circumstances surrounding Gricar’s disappearance prompt many questions. . . .
