(November 11, 2011)Sandusky Made Nearly $500K At The Second Mile After Admitting He Showered With A Boy, According To Tax Records
We've obtained tax returns for The Second Mile charity from 1998 to present. Some disturbing tidbits in there. Easily the most disturbing is the amount of money Jerry Sandusky earned through his nonprofit organization after 1998, when at least one person affiliated with The Second Mile learned that Sandusky was under investigation for sexual misconduct.
The total: $456,000.
Sandusky wasn't charged in 1998, remember, but he did admit to hugging a boy while showering with him, which he further acknowledged was wrong.
In 2001, The Second Mile started paying Sandusky an annual "consulting" fee of $57,000, according to the IRS records. The Second Mile only stopped paying Sandusky in 2009, after the charity also decided to stop Sandusky from camping out with young boys.
Even without the allegations that Sandusky used the charity to find victims, this kind of gravy-ladling should make everyone sick.
