Jay Paterno, the son of late Penn State coaching legend Joe Paterno, has announced his candidacy for lieutenant governor. He is a Democrat. The primary is May 20. Five others have also declared they are seeking the Democrat nomination, according to PennLive.com.
Good for him.
His father, a decent man, was made the scapegoat for vile circumstances of which he was completely innocent but for an error in judgment, and considering the response by law enforcement to the first Jerry Sandusky accusation — it was swept under the rug – maybe wasn’t such an error in judgment.
Regardless the sickness in Happy Valley went far beyond Sandusky and the football team, which should be noted Sandusky no longer helped coach as JoePa pushed him out soon after the first accusation.
