Graham Spanier’s charges don’t shed light on fed job

It was never clear which government agency Spanier was working for — he said it was related to national security and his lawyer told the Loop back in July that it was so hush-hush even he didn’t know. A spokesman for the Pennsylvania Attorney General tells us that it’s still a mystery. “I’m not aware of anyone who has claimed ownership of him,” spokesman Nils Frederiksen tells the Loop. “He’s obviously good at keeping secrets.”

An attorney for Spanier, who’s facing eight charges that include perjury, endangering the welfare of children, and obstruction of justice, didn’t immediately return our call.
