Pa. Attorney General Allows Reporters To View 'Explicit' Emails

By Tony Romeo

HARRISBURG, Pa., (CBS) -- The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office Thursday allowed reporters to view explicit emails shared among state employees.

Several news organizations sought the emails that were discovered during the Attorney General's review of the Sandusky probe under the state's Right To Know law. After first saying earlier this week the emails would not be released, the attorney general's office on Thursday allowed reporters – including this one – to view what the office said was a sample of images sent or received, images that ranged from nude pictures to hardcore video.

However, in a statement, the Attorney General's office says it has redacted the names of current employees and also says that for reasons that cannot be elaborated on, the names of others involved in the activity cannot be revealed.
