Earlier this morning, Mark Madden dropped a bomb of a rumor about the Jerry Sandusky scandal that, if you can believe it, would make an already stomach turning and angering story 100x worse.
Again, this is just a rumor, and I present it only because people will be talking about it, so I’d prefer you actually have the source; but I will say that Madden has proven with respect to this story that he has credibility and prescience.
Listen here, and skip ahead to about the 7:30 mark if you want to get right to the rumor:
If you don’t have time to listen, here is what Madden said (h/t Business Insider):
“I hear a rumor that there will be a shocking development from the Second Miles Foundation … That Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors.”
Madden claims it’s being investigated by “two prominent columnists.”
Madden also said the following, which will surprise no one and actually makes perfect sense when you review the timeline of this sickening story:
Madden also claimed Sandusky was forced out of Penn State in 1999.
“I think you’ll find out that Jerry Sandusky was told he had to retire in exchange for a cover up.”
Again, I present the clear caveat that I have nothing else to back this up, but these words were said on-air by a person who has been covering this story, and respected journalists are already tweeting links to it.
Do with this information what you will; I just hope and pray that this isn’t true. It would be an unfathomably evil appendage to a story I keep thinking can’t get any worse but that seems to keep proving me wrong on that.
