Joe Paterno’s Wife Reportedly Kicked Out of Campus Swimming Pool (Update)
How sensitive is the Jerry Sandusky investigation on the Penn State campus right now? So bad that Joe Paterno’s wife, Sue Paterno, reportedly was kicked out of a school swimming pool Wednesday.
The Patriot-News‘ Sara Ganim says no reason was given when Sue Paterno was asked to leave the facility. Ganim adds that Mrs. Paterno used Penn State facilities to swim and exercise everyday, but was told Wednesday morning that she could no longer use the facilities.
The development makes sense given that her husband was fired as the school’s football coach. However, her son is still a coach on the team. We’re not sure why she’s not allowed to use the pool anymore, but we take this as a positive sign to show that Penn State is finally taking the sexual abuse investigation and alleged coverup seriously.
UPDATE: The Patriot-News says the sides are working on a deal for the Paterno family to use campus facilities.
