Attorney General Kathleen Kane's long-awaited report on the investigation of Jerry Sandusky will be released Monday.

The investigation found no evidence that Tom Corbett delayed the Sandusky investigation for political gain, The Philadelphia Inquirer has reported.

People who saw the report before it was cleared for release told The Philadelphia Inquirer what it contained.

Kane commissioned the report in January 2013 amid allegations that Gov. Corbett, who was the state's attorney general when Sandusky's crimes came to light, sat on the truth to improve his changes at a gubernatorial run. 

Corbett's office received the case in 2009. Sandusky wasn't arrested until November 2011.

Corbett ran for governor in 2010. There had been speculation that Corbett timed the investigation so that the case wouldn't break before his gubernatorial run.

Sandusky, a former assistant coach at Penn State, was convicted in June 2012 of 45 out of 48 counts of child sexual abuse, and is serving 30 to 60 years in state prison.

I don't care what this reports says -- Corbett put 2 -- yes, TWO, state troopers on this case and Sandusky continued to rape and molest other boys before he was arrested THREE YEARS LATER. Why didn't Corbett investigate Sandusky's Second Mile organization -- which was a feeder of little boys for Sandusky? ALSO why did Corbett give a $3MILLION taxpayer funded grant to Second Mile -- and organization who DONATED $$$ to Corbett's election fund? Corbett stinks -- he KNEW little boys were being raped -- and he DID NOTHING for 3 years -- except take $$ and give back $millions to the same organization!

Even if that's the case, the bottom line is that, Tom Corbett still allowed the NCAA to take 60+million dollars out of the state of Pa. when the money should have stayed in our state to help future generations of child molestation victims, when these horrid crimes take place. This money, if handled right, could have helped thousands of victims for generations. Shame on you Tom Corbett, you had a chance & an obligation to our state, as well as the countless victims of these crimes. Bottom line, we're not interested in four more years of your ass monkey politics, you're done, and come November, the people will see to it, you Bastard!
