A re­view re­leased by the of­fice of At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Kath­leen Kane (D) “has found no evid­ence that then-At­tor­ney Gen­er­al” and cur­rent Gov. Tom Corbett (R) “delayed the in­vest­ig­a­tion in­to seri­al sex ab­user Jerry San­dusky for polit­ic­al gain, but it raises ques­tions about the pace of the case” and “does flag the tim­ing of cer­tain de­cisions pro­sec­utors made.”

“Com­mis­sioned in Janu­ary 2013 by” Kane “and com­pleted by a former fed­er­al pro­sec­utor, the full re­port is ex­pec­ted to be made pub­lic soon. For Corbett, it has the po­ten­tial to boost or hurt his chances for reelec­tion this year. For Kane, whose name of­ten is men­tioned for high­er of­fice, it could prove a test of wheth­er the re­view was worth the time, money, and ef­fort.” (Phil­adelphia In­quirer)
