We still don't know why it took the feds three months to initiate their own investigation of Jerry Sandusky, but now that they have, they've subpoenaed a laundry list of financial records, emails, correspondence, computer hard drives, and other documents from Penn State dating back to 1998. It's tempting to wonder what Penn State might have done with some of these records between Sandusky's arrest in early November and the date of the U.S. Attorney's subpoena request on Feb. 2. But an NBC News report indicates some of that may not matter, since Penn State apparently never bothered to do anything about Sandusky's university-provided Interent access until quite recently:

NBC News has learned that Sandusky had access to a Penn State Internet access account from shortly after his arrest until it was disabled sometime in the past two weeks. That means records of his account and emails stored on the Penn State University system would have been saved and be subject to a subpoena.

The letter Penn State received from the feds can be viewed below:
