Former Gov. Tom Ridge's statement on PSU Scandal

Written by Nell McCormack Abom, Host Smart Talk TV | Nov 10, 2011 4:01 PM

"Along with my fellow Pennsylvanians and all Americans, I have been shocked and deeply saddened by the horrible tragedy at Penn State. 

"My heart goes out to the victims and their families and I join everyone in praying for their healing, with the hope that somehow their lives may be restored and renewed. 

"It is my hope and expectation that recent actions by state and federal authorities, as well as the Penn State Board of Trustees, will begin the very difficult process of determining all of the facts, helping all of the victims in need of support and justice, and ensuring that something like this never happens again."

Gov. Ridge makes no mention of speculation swirling around the possibility that the might be named president of the university.  His partner at Ridge Policy Group, Mark Holman, says all attention right now must remain focused on the victims.
