    Corbett did not launch the investigation. It was started by the Center County DA who disappeared 3 to 4 months after he gave his information to Corbett. Corbett refused to investigate let alone indict anyone. They eventually found the prosecutor’s car, his briefcase and laptop which had the hard drive removed. Corbett is a scumbag in addition to being a lying sack of you know what. Get your facts straight before you give that sleazbag credit for anything regarding Sandusky.
