Former Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary is filing a whistleblower lawsuit against Penn State. The paperwork was filed today on behalf of his lawyer Eliot Strokoff. That is his name- how unfortunate that we are not joking. You have to admit that’s funny.

Genuinely funny, not dark humor like how Jerry Sandusky is being represented by a man who impregnated a minor who was about a third his age.

A writ of summons for a civil case was filed in county court today; giving Penn State University notice that he’s suing them.


From the Centre Daily Times:

McQueary, who testified about seeing Jerry Sandusky in an “extremely sexual” situation with a young boy in a Penn State locker room shower, is on administrative leave after he received death threats. The incident has been determined to have happened in 2001, not 2002 as originally put forth by the prosecution.

That incident led to the firing of former head coach Joe Paterno and criminal charges against Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

Call me crazy, but I’m still concerned about the actual possibility of Sandusky getting a fair trial in Pennsylvania. I wish the Feds could somehow find a way to mandate a change of venue, although legally I know that’s impossible. Given the way Paterno was sanctified in that state, I have a feeling that Sandusky could walk.

But I have FFC though “full faith and credit in the U.S. Government,” and believe that justice will be handed down on a national level.
