Update from Albert L. Lord, the former Sallie Mae CEO who's running for an alumni seat on the Penn State board:
One week ago I asked your support to get nominated. I received notice Tuesday I am an official nominee... I have begun two separate actions which, combined with the board seat, can accelerate our efforts:
First, I have actively engaged with [fired former Penn State President] Graham Spanier to sue Louis Freeh [author of the Freeh Report critical of Penn State's past management] for the purposeful harm he has caused. Also I have contributed to the candidacy of Commonwealth Treasurer, Rob McCord, in his run for Pennsylvania Governor...
[Lord gave McCord $500,000. He is McCord's leading contributor so far.]
I believe Rob is Penn State’s best hope in Harrisburg. Rob reached out to me through [State Sen.] John Yudichak, a friend and avid Penn Stater who shares our sentiments. Both John and Rob have a keen interest in the events surrounding Penn State and seek fair treatment for Penn State from the Commonwealth... Importantly, Rob has promised to upgrade the Board of Trustees.
