This article is eye-opening, too. Implies that MSU hid the Nassar investigation from US Dept of Ed officials investigating Title IX violations on campus. This sentence is pretty wild:
“Even without knowledge of the Nassar allegations, the Office for Civil Rights investigation into how MSU handled sexual assault and gender discrimination cases ended with findings that MSU had fostered a ‘sexually hostile environment’ on campus.”
My sense of this thing even a few days ago was that Simon and Hollis needed to go because the ugly took place on their watch. But it starts to look like it was more cynical than that. There are some other articles out there tonight about how a climate of abuse pervaded US women’s gymnastics–those little girls get screamed at an awful lot, apparently. It’s not just MSU, but if you think that this compulsive bastard could have been stopped a very long time ago, it makes you wince.
