I don’t expect Carol Folt to get it right on football. Two years ago, she did not want fire Clay Helton.
But I do expect her to handle issues that concern the safety of USC students.
Folt said in a letter sent to students and staff Friday that the university’s hotline received at least seven reports of possible drugging and possible sexual assault at a fraternity in late September but the information wasn’t shared with students until a month later.
“We now know that there was a troubling delay in acting on this information. As president, I came to USC with the promise to confront what is wrong and lead the effort to fix what is broken. This is too important to not get right,” Folt said.
What a disgraceful admission. Will USC investigate and get rid of anyone who delayed the release of this information? If it does, it won’t tell the public. That’s just not the university’s way. It prefers to keep things private.
