Gov. Tom Corbett's decision to sue the National Collegiate Athletic Association over the sanctions it imposed on Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky scandal was the wrong move.
The governor is asking that a federal judge throw out the sanctions, which include a $60 million fine and a four-year ban on bowl games, arguing that the measures harm students, business owners and others who had nothing to do with Sandusky's crimes.
The governor's emphasis on the economic power of Penn State is also offensive to those who were victimized by Sandusky, the boys he abused. This lawsuit is misguided.
