investigation which found the USOC and USA Gymnastics knowingly concealed abuses by NASA they in effect covered up the massive predatory monster-like now lawmakers are introducing sweeping legislation to stop it from happening again the bill would make the USOC and the organizations that oversee each sport more liable for failing to protect athletes it would put more athletes in positions of power and give lawmakers the ability to dissolve the USOC board altogether the USOC says it applauds the proposed legislation but it's CEO raised concerns that in practice it could result in unintended consequences for athletes and in a statement USA Gymnastics said it has already made numerous changes to prevent abuse in the future NASA is now serving a life sentence after more than 300 young

some of whom live in million-dollar homes with incomes well into six figures go to court to have a legal guardian with fewer financial resources appointed for their college bound students giving them
