Seth Davis is the lead college basketball writer for Sports Illustrated and part of the panel of suits that talks out of your television before, during, and after March Madness games. He’s also the son of Lanny Davis, a Washington ghoul nonpareil, whose allegiance has always been available to the highest bidder. Those bidders have tended to be among the least savory people on the planet: warlord dictators, colleges who harbored child rapists, the villainous owner of the Washington Redskins, etc. In exchange, Lanny got rich, of course, allowing him to provide a cushy life for Seth, who grew up in Connecticut and attended Duke.

Penn State's new president has hired notorious Washington taint sucker Lanny Davis, the former Clinton White House counsel and whiny, self-defeating media booster for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Penn State really is committed to fixing its image as the Keystone State's finest enabler of the worst thing in the world.
