Epstein and big money donations to Ohio State University


Snip-"Epstein’s donations also reflect an interest in higher education. Ohio State University released a statement last week saying it would take “action as appropriate” on more than $2.5 million it had received from Epstein and Epstein-related organizations. The school did not further elaborate.

In 2007, Epstein gave $47 million to a foundation run by the Ohio-based Wexner family, owners of the lingerie chain Victoria’s Secret. That year, the foundation, along with another foundation created by Epstein, each gave $2.5 million to Ohio State; by way of gratitude for the $5 million, the school named a football complex after Wexner.

Wexner is widely reported to have been a client of Epstein’s. Last week, Wexner told his company’s employees that he was not aware of Epstein’s alleged crimes."

Snip-"In light of the renewed focus on the allegations against Epstein, the school said it would undertake a “complete review” of Epstein’s history of giving, all the way back to a $1,000 donation to Ohio State in 1990. The school told the Miami Herald it had no further updates."

Well this is becoming an ugly local story.

2. OSU has had some big league problems last few years

The wife beating ex football coach, long history looking away from sexual assaults -Richard Strauss & Gym Jordan, who looked away.

I almost feel sorry for Pres Michael Drake, then I realized he makes serious $$$, so no sympathy


Snip-"Ohio State University trustees approved a 2.5 percent raise for President Michael V. Drake on Friday, applauding his work over the past year.

The raise brings Drake's base salary to more than $870,000 per year. Trustees also awarded Drake a $212,000 bonus, the maximum amount allowed under his contract for meeting agreed-upon goals."

3. Let's hope

Drake actually does something to EARN that money besides fundraising and hobnobbing with the elite crowd.

As bad as these things are, it's good and it's important that they're being brought out to the public view. The Jordan scandal is especially heinous .... I haven't kept up with what they're doing about it, if anything. But this really underscores our essential need for investigative journalism and the support of newspapers, doesn't it?
