Congressional committee to investigate MSU, USOC and more regarding Nassar case

Funds Raised For Dad Who Lunged At Larry Nassar Will Go To Charity

He's been sentenced to decades in prison for sexual assault and possession of child pornography.

"It's uplifting to see how willing people are to support to those in need, and we're glad to see the money going to organizations that help survivors of abuse", IBEW Local 665 said in a statement posted on the site Thursday.

"One of my teammates described in graphic detail what Nassar had done to her the night before".

A jaw-dropping moment happened towards the end of sentencing when Randy Margaves, father of three victims, lunged at Larry Nassar in the middle of the sentencing, and had to be restrained by courtroom deputies.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced Thursday it has launched an investigation into multiple entities, including the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics, in the fallout from the Larry Nassar scandal.

Twistars was run by former USA Gymnastics coach John Geddert, who coached the team to gold at the 2012 London games.

Raisman said she was not sure if Geddert attempted to stop Nassar from the abuse after the vehicle conversation but she was certain he never asked the athletes any questions.

Nassar's sentencing in Eaton County was his third in recent months as dozens of young women and their families stepped forward to confront him for his sexual abuse of gymnasts under the guise of medical treatment.

The Committee also sent a letter to Michigan State University informing it of an investigation.

"Thank you both, John and Larry, for being one of the biggest disappointments in my life and destroying me", she said.

She went on in her statement to explain that there had been women who spoke out against Nassar, but their complaints were ignored and investigations were refused.

In the wake of the Nassar trial, many have called for the removal of Michigan State's highest ranking officials, along with all those at the university who been complacent with allegations of abuse.

Geddert, 60, abruptly resigned last month after USA Gymnastics suspended him as part of an internal investigation, the New York Daily News reported.

"I can only hope when the day comes that Larry Nassar has ended his days on this earth that he will be escorted to one of the deepest, darkest, hottest pits in hell there is", Margraves said.

Raisman's testimony, and the 155 other testimonies, prove that these women are not victims, but a band of survivors that have shown they are stronger than Nassar and the systems that allowed this abuse to take place for so many years. This should have never ever happened.
