Former Syracuse coach Bernie Fine will face a second investigation stemming from his alleged sexual abuse of boys.So yet another episode of male coaches molesting young boys wrecks the sports world and the mainstream media remains complicit in their pro-gay agenda by refusing the address the underlying issues of homosexuality that are at the root of these scandals. Indeed, as tolerance of homosexuality grows, so does fear of being branded "homophobic". It's no secret that gay activists are a sensitive bunch (even to genuine criticism that comes from friend-to-the-gays like Patti Stranger). Thus one can't help but wonder if a reason why inappropriate relationships between grown men and young boys at bigtime institutions like Penn State and Syracuse can go unreported or unchallenged for so long is due to fear of being accused of homophobia? After all, in an age when the mainstream media is combining with schools to teach kids that 'there is nothing wrong with being gay', it would make sense for gay predators of children to feel more and more comfortable going about their despicable acts with more brazenment.
Police in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, said on Monday they will investigate Fine, who was fired from his job as an assistant men's basketball coach, once they receive relevant information from their counterparts in Syracuse.
One of his alleged victims filed an affidavit with Syracuse police, Pittsburgh police said, accusing Fine of molesting him in a Pittsburgh hotel room.
Fine already faced an investigation in Syracuse, where the U.S. attorney's office and the U.S. Secret Service are taking the lead, according to a Monday statement from Syracuse police.
The Secret Service is providing expertise related to electronic communications gathered in the investigation, said John Duncan, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in New York's northern district.
File cabinets were among the items taken from Fine's home after authorities executed a search warrant there last week. Duncan declined to discuss what authorities were looking for.
Also Monday, the nephew of Fine's wife said she will make a statement Tuesday challenging the implications of a tape recording of a 2002 telephone conversation with one of her husband's accusers that appears to show she knew of the alleged sexual abuse.
"She'll even say that's her voice," nephew Matt Govendo said, but that the sections of the tape -- excerpts of which were made public Sunday by the Syracuse-based Post-Standard newspaper and ESPN -- "are all tampered with."
The university fired Fine from his job Sunday night, hours after the Post-Standard and ESPN reported on the phone conversation, which they said former Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis had recorded between him and the coach's wife.
In the tape, a woman that ESPN, citing experts, identified as Laurie Fine said she knew "everything that went on" with her husband, adding that "he thinks he's above the law."
