Speaking to Lawrence O’Donnell on Tuesday, she called the allegations against Jerry Sandusky “deplorable” and “unthinkably evil.” She said that her anger over the cover-up at Penn State prompted her to finally speak up about her own experience.
She said, “If I’m angry that adults did not speak out then, then why am I not angry at myself for not telling my story and helping young women like me combat predators who are in our high schools and middle schools?”
