    NOW you're looking into it, seriously?
    Great quote, Becca. I tweeted this out and then had second thoughts because I had not asked your permission, for which I apologize. But it was such a good statement. Becca then liked my tweet so I guess you're not mad at me, which I am grateful for. Apologize for overstepping any bounds.

    Odds are good that his fellow inmates will give him the punishment he deserves.

    The USOC put out a statement.

    They apologized for not attending the victim impact statements in person.

    They are demanding that the rest of the USAG Board of Directors resign and a massive overhaul to the governance structure of USAG.

    They would prefer not to decertify, but will if they don't make the needed changes.

    They are are going to fund their own third party investigation regarding who knew what and when.

    And they are promising support and resources for survivors.

    Now we just need the USOC to remove Fran Sepler from the SafeSport Board of Directors.

    Sepler is the investigator (or not?) hired by USAG to look into this matter before they reported it to the FBI five and a half weeks later.

    And in a recent article, she basically said that if she received a report years later of a child who had been abused, she still would not necessarily report it to law enforcement.

    She has to go and the USOC needs to be public about it and apologize for ever brining her on board.

    Oh scratch that last comment, the USOC is now telling me that Fran Sepler is no longer on the SafeSport Board of Directors. GOOD

    or more likely he'll be in "protective isolation" for the rest of his life?
