- A CNN investigation into John Geddert spoke with seven gymnasts/families about their experiences with him, and it wasn’t pretty
- CNN also has the May 2017 Karolyi depositions. They aren’t pretty either.
- Apparently the Karolyis had very little to do with the ranch and barely ever met or talked to Larry Nassar. Huh?
- It was all USAG’s and Kathy Kelly’s fault
- “I wanted them to be safe, but…”
- Nassar’s boss, William Strampel, has been arrested for insane 1970s sexual misconduct. That’s the official charge.
- Those two MSU trainers who were informed about Nassar and did nothing still work there
- MSU spent $500K in January monitoring social media accounts of Nassar survivors and journalists. We definitely can’t think of a better use for that money
- USAG Athlete Assistance Fund application and the Saving Our Survivors Fund
