  1. Will Sue Corbett holding little Liam, become the Anne Romney of the 2014 election? Sue: If you want to inject yourself in this race be prepared to discuss the Sandusky case and why Victim #1 feels this prosecution was slow-rolled and so was so painful for him. Tom loves to protect kids, but apparently he needed to protect his Second Mile super donors. Also be prepared to discuss why your husband supports the Cyber Charter School Corporate Welfare Queen Mafia, some of his largest donors, when this industry is totally ineffective and sometimes corrupt. http://youtu.be/-18uTDmBou8
