Disgraced Penn State President Hired by Obama Administration for Top Secret National Security Post

You just cant make this stuff up folks. Of course Spanier has been shilling and covering for the progressive secular left for years – LINK and was invested in the child sex abuse cover-up according the the investigation of Penn State by former FBI Director Louis Freeh.

Political commentator Marie Garr said it best, “Guess they figure he can keep a secret……….GEEZ!”

Our take: What if Bush had done this?

Disgraced Penn State President Graham Spanier

Washington Post:

Graham Spanier might have been ousted from his post at the helm of Penn State over the sex-abuse scandal that engulfed the university, but it seems he’s found a backup employer: the American taxpayer.

Only a disgraced public figure would consider joining the much-maligned ranks of the federal workforce as a step up, reputation-wise. We can assume there were no openings for a used-car salesman.

Spanier was faulted in an internal Penn State report after the conviction on child-molestation charges of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. The report said he, head coach Joe Paterno and others helped cover up Sandusky’s abuse.

His lawyer confirms to the Loop that Spanier is working on a part-time consulting basis for a “top-secret” agency on national security issues. But the gig is so hush-hush, he couldn’t even tell his attorneys the name of the agency. In April — months after his ouster as president but before the release of the internal report — he told the Patriot-News of central Pennsylvania that he was working on a “special project for the U.S. government relating [to] national security.”

But who’s he working for? The CIA? Homeland Security? Or maybe just a dull consulting firm with a government contract?

“I have no idea,”says his lawyer, Peter Vaira. “We know the work is in security and he’s prohibited from disclosing which agency or agencies he’s working for.”

Here is the rub. Even if he is not working for a government agency directly and he is a contractor for an intelligence agency he would still have to submit an SF86 and still pass the most rigorous national security scrutiny – unless of course that process was greased for him just like it has been for others in the Obama White House who couldn’t pass such scrutiny normally on their best day. One thing is almost a certainty; someone tipped off the Washington Post to this and they almost certainly know more than what they are reporting here.

    Is he just bragging or does he really have a job? If he really has a job, next thing you know they’ll hire Jerry Sandusky to help fight child abuse online…..

  2. Tim says:

    Time to read the reports you referenced.. you are accusing 2 men of things they were never convicted of. The Freeh report has been SHREDDED by many different sources as biased, clunky, and lacking in facrs.facts ..

    Political Arena Editor Responds:

    I didn’t hire former FBI Director Louis Freeh to do Penn State’s internal investigation, Penn State did. And every football fan who takes fandom too far is defending the people around Sandusky and is saying just what you are saying, but it doesn’t carry much weight with thinking people who do not have a horse in that race.

  3. WVStarktruth says:

    Amen, to that, Mr. Editor. Trolls for the left show up on all the news sights now.

  4. Lee says:

    “Birds of a feather…”

  5. Brian says:

    I am not a Penn State fan. Heard something interesting two days ago though. People are giving Louis Freeh so much credit because he is the “former director of the FBI”. Yet, he is the one who was involved in the Waco cover-up and botched the Atlanta Olympics bombing investigation. Sounds like this guy can make sone pretty big mistakes. Do I thing his investigation is probably true, yes, but it is too eraly to be sure. He does not have a great track record.

    Political Arena Editor Responds:

    Anyone with a long career is going to have some blemishes, but to be fair in both of those cases you mentioned Director Freeh had the mega-corrupt Janet Reno breathing down his neck. That probably should be taken into consideration.

  6. Robert Farnham says:

    Just don’t understand why he is not in jail for his part in covering up the Penn State scandal? He had just as much liability as did Joe Paterno to report this to the proper authorities!!

  7. Mark Levine says:

    Folks, if you read the Washington Post article cited here, you’ll see that nobody knows or can confirm the supposed secret Government job that Spanier claims he took. Not even his own lawyer! So the sole source of this “story” is the very man who denied he knew anything about child molestation at Penn State.

    If you think Spanier’s a liar — as I do — you won’t believe this story. But if you believe Spanier has integrity, then you shouldn’t worry about the supposed secret Government job he claims he has.

    And if he does have a secret Government job, wouldn’t the first indication be that he is NOT allowed to talk about it? If he had a secret job, he wouldn’t tell us in the first place! No secret agent says, “I’m a secret agent.”

    PoliticalArena Editor Responds::

    Mark, you have given us a nice false choice argument between two choices that fit your point of view nicely; so I will take it upon myself to offer a more realistic third choice, especially considering the other coverups that Spanier has been involved in such as ClimateGate:

    I agree no legit secret agent does say that. But a political hack who has served the progressive secular left for decades would and it just so happens that Spanier fits that description like a glove.

  8. DAN MCCOY says:

    He ought to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for his part in the coverup and he should be serving time not taking more taxpayers money. Shows how corrupt O’bamas staff is

    Yes you can make this up! And you crazy ass repubs are masters at it. Such paranoia! Enemies everywhere! The power that you achieve only spells our further decline. Read a book (or two)! Please try to embrace critical thought. I beg you! Yes, I beg you! Weak? Maybe! Intelligent? Almost certainly!


    Political Arena Editor Responds:

    Jason, I will be happy to tell you about one book I have read. It is called “Rules for Radicals” by Obama mentor Saul Alinsky. The book instructs the far left on how to ridicule and demonize people and how to deceive and propagandize them. I am sure I am not only one to notice that you engaged in mindless ridicule without making any kind of substantive argument and without addressing the subject matter at all. I am sure that you tell your friends how well read you are, so if you got this book and actually took the time to read it you could at least be telling the truth about having read this book.

    I hope that a fuller story about the involvement of all the administrators who failed to take appropriate action will come out. We know that Messrs Schultz and Curley are on trial in Dauphin County for perjury. What we do not know is whether enough evidence has been or can be gathered to bring ex-President Spanier to trial. Even prosecutors wishing to try a person they believe guilty occasionally have to forego a trial because they believe they have a weak case.

    Recall Al Capone. It was “common knowledge” that he had been involved in quite serious crimes. Yet he was tried and convicted for income tax evasion.

    If enough strong evidence can be gathered that Mr Spanier committed a crime, I believe he will be accused and brought to trial. Whether a plea bargain will be worked out remains to be seen.

    I suppose the difference in age and in position has meant that Mr McQueary has been let off the hook, as it were. Still, I submit he showed poor, if immature, judgment in not following up with Mr Paterno, going over his coach’s head, or around Mr Paterno to learn what action had been taken. It was Mr McQueary, after all, who started the rock down the hill and pursuing the matter might have cost him his assistantship and made him persona non grata.
