Auditor General blasts PSU in wake of Sandusky scandal

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Auditor General Jack Wagner is blasting Penn State University, claiming it hasn't made any changes since the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Wagner wouldn't say if he supports Governor Tom Corbett's lawsuit against the NCAA over its sanctions against the football team, but repeatedly said during a press conference Tuesday that there should be serious consequences for the school.

Wagner said the lawsuit focuses on the football team and not the victims.

"I'm concerned that there's an emphasis again on sports rather than on the children that were abused and correcting the problem permanently," Wagner said. "Nothing has changed. President (Rodney) Erickson has the same power as (former) President (Graham) Spanier. The governor is still a voting member of the board. The governor should not be a voting member of the board. That's a conflict of interest."

Wagner released a report recommending specific changes at Penn State, but said he feels that report has been ignored.
