Governor Corbett Goes On WPHT To Defend Handling Of Sandusky Investigation

By Tony Romeo

HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) - Governor Corbett went on radio talk shows in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh yesterday as he continues to defend his handling of the Jerry Sandusky investigation while attorney general.

During a news conference in Harrisburg last week, Governor Corbett for the first time denied the often-reported assertion that only one investigator was assigned to the Sandusky case.

On Monday, he called into KDKA's Marty Griffin Show to do the same.

"I was just listening to you and I think I have to correct the record."

Corbett also appeared on WPHT's Dom Giordano Show Monday to say there were several investigators from the attorney general's office on the job, all of whom he says are professionals.

"Even if I wanted them to slow down on something, they wouldn't."

Franklin and Marshall College political analyst Terry Madonna believes it's the continuation of a recent trend toward a more aggressive Tom Corbett.

"He is going to get out front now on many issues. He's not going to lie back and let the criticism go unchallenged."

Madonna does not believe questions about the Sandusky probe will damage Corbett.
