I think Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon’s resignation letter says a lot for why Larry Nassar was enabled by the university. The following statement says to me, “I am not to blame, but since I am the President I am the scapegoat.” MSU Alumni, parents, and students ought to be appalled by what appears to be institutionalized problems.

As tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable. As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger.
