>> My parents trusted USA Gymnastics and Larry Nassar could take care of me, and we were betrayed by both.>> Major housecleaning at USA Gymnastics. Its remaining 16 board members resigned Friday in the wake of the sexual abuse scandal surrounding the Federation's former team doctor, Larry Nassar. The US Olympic Committee had set a deadline of Wednesday for the group to leave or have the Federation stripped of its power.
Five members had already quit as a result of the scandal. And another domino fell at Michigan State University, where Nassar also once worked.>> Today, I'm announcing my retirement.>> Athletic Director, Mark Hollis, leaving his post just two days after Michigan State President, Lou Anna Simon, announced her resignation.
>> I'm not running away from anything, I'm running towards something. Comfort, compassion, and understanding for the survivors in our community.>> Michigan State's board of directors met Friday to name an acting president, and for some self-flagellation for failing to stop Nassar sooner.>> This board has come across as tone deaf, emotionless, and lacking empathy.
>> The school is under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General's Office, which also prosecuted Nassar. Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison, after scores of gymnasts and other athletes excoriated him for his years of sexual abuse, under the guise of medical care.>> And you are nothing.
>> And on Friday, Congress and the Department of Education joined the US Olympic Committee in opening broad investigations into abuse in sports. The House next week will vote on a bill already approved by the Senate to require amateur athletics governing bodies to report sex abuse allegations immediately to law enforcement or a child welfare agency.
>> Exactly where it happened, when it went wrong, and how it can be avoided for the future.
