    I don't think this has been posted.

    Steve Penny resigned as president of USA Gymnastics on Thursday following intensified pressure on the organization for its handling of sex abuse cases.

    The resignation came a week after the United States Olympic Committee's board recommended to USA Gymnastics chairman Paul Parilla that Penny should step down. Penny offered his resignation during a previously scheduled board meeting on Thursday.

    [...]

    The gregarious Penny -- whose booming voice and penchant for wearing eye-catching shoes during big events made him stand out in a sea of gymnasts -- has denied any wrongdoing and the USA Gymnastics board of directors had remained supportive throughout the firestorm.

    That didn't stop the USOC from sending recommendations to USA Gymnastics Thursday. While the USOC does not have official authority to remove heads of national governing bodies, it can apply pressure by threatening to without funding. The USOC gives USA Gymnastics a cash grant of nearly $2 million annually.

    I hope Nassar won't be able to reapply for a medical license after 3 years because I hope he'll be behind bars, where he should be spending the remainder of his life. He doesn't deserve to practice medicine (or, in his case, pretend to practice medicine).
    Agree!
    He has no business " practicing " medicine.

    Judge orders courtroom closed during testimony in Nassar case
    An Eaton County courtroom will be closed to the public in June when two women and a teenage girl are expected to testify that Larry Nassar sexually assaulted them during medical appointments, a judge ruled today.

    Eaton County District Court Judge Julie Reincke said she will allow one support person for each of the witnesses to be present in the courtroom. She added that one print media reporter will be allowed in the courtroom for the testimony, but will be barred from reporting the alleged victims' names or other identifying information.

    I am surprised this has not gotten as much media attention compared to Penn State or Roman Catholic Church.

    This is just as serious.

    Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar Faces Sex-Abuse Accusers in Court

    by Tracy Connor

    A high-profile gymnastics doctor who allegedly molested dozens of patients, including an Olympic medalist, faced two of his accusers in a Michigan courtroom Friday and heard them describe his "degrading" treatments.

    The women testified at a preliminary hearing in Ingham County that will determine if there's enough evidence for Dr. Larry Nassar to stand trial on sexual assault charges...

    Testimony: Nassar’s massage treatment ‘hurt a lot’

    Kim Kozlowski , The Detroit News Published 12:05 a.m. ET May 26, 2017 | Updated 15 hours ago

    Mason — A 16-year-old girl testified Friday that a former Michigan State University sports doctor accused of sexually abusing patients had a reputation among gymnasts for being “touchy” and hurt her when he digitally penetrated her during treatment of her heel.

    An 18-year-old woman testified that when she sought treatment for back pain from Larry Nassar — a renowned osteopathic physician at MSU and lead physician for USA Gymnastics — she told him that she felt better when he was inserting his fingers inside her “because I wanted it to stop.”

    And a 17-year-old girl testified that after Nassar penetrated her vagina and anus with his fingers for back pain when she was 11 years old, human touch has not been the same.

    “I am very uncomfortable being touched in any shape or form,” said the girl...

    How did this go on for so long without anyone putting a stop to the monster's "treatments"?
