Former Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bob Young's terrible record on sexual assault cases should disqualify him from assisting with Michigan State University's rebuilding efforts in the wake of the Nassar scandal, a leading victim says.

Rachel Denhollander was the first to speak out against Nassar, now she is calling out Young.

According to the Detroit News:

"Rachael Denhollander, the woman who first spoke out against Nassar, also is alarmed about Young’s role at MSU. She said he has “an absolutely abhorrent track record as a judge, on the specific issue of sexual assault.”

“At every turn, MSU and Engler have appointed political insiders who have a consistent record of being part of the culture of abuse,” said Denhollander, an attorney. “This is not change. This is not transparency. This is institutional protectionism, and it should deeply concern every citizen whose money is being used to fund a university that oversaw the greatest sexual assault scandal in sport and campus history. Especially when this university, at every chance to make real change, runs in the opposite direction.”

One can't say Young isn't charitable though: the article notes he's offering MSU a 10% discount on his $640 an HOUR fee! What a guy.

 Can't John Engler get his buddy to give taxpayers a little better of a deal?
