After all the talk about Congressional hearings, subpoenas and sworn testimony, it appears “Spygate” will not be uttered in the hallowed halls in Washington D.C.. After months of threatening an official investigation into the NFL’s handling of Spygate, Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter has said he will not be pursuing any such investigation because he “doesn’t have the time.”
The Philadelphia Daily News broke the story which had Specter quoted saying, “I’ve gone as far as I can” and says Specter will now focus on another sports topic – the public financing of stadiums. Specter also said he wouldn’t be pursuing an investigation because he has “too much to do.”
No comment has been released as of yet from the NFL or the Patriots.
My Take: What a windbag. After all he puts the league and the Patriots through, he does what everyone knew would happen, drop the matter. Specter had zero support in Congress for a full investigation and even Patriots haters across the country wondered why with all the problems facing the country that Specter would waste time on this. This should finally bring a close to Spygate forever as all rocks seemed to have been overturned. Specter proved how stupid he is and how much he just wanted the limelight and now he’ll focus on other things not related to our economy, the war on terror and health care. Good job Pennsylvania!
