Statement Regarding Advertisment in Pennsylvania
In regards to the ad, "Walked", on July 27, 2012, the Associated Press reported that Republican Attorney General candidate, David Freed said he "sees no reason for the next attorney general to review the department's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case." The AP also stated in the story that "critics" including Kathleen Kane "have called for an investigation of why Sandusky was not charged sooner."
Six days later, the AP issued a correction that stated that David Freed "did not rule out" a review of the case. The AP also reported that a "campaign spokesman" said that a review would be done "were [Freed] to see any evidence that required' one.
The correction (not retraction) of the story doesn't change the salient point: Others, including Kane, have called for an independent review of why it took so long for Sandusky to be charged, but based on the evidence available today, Freed does not believe there needs to be or must be a review, which is exactly what is stated in the ad.
