“After reading the Altoona-Johnstown report, I thought it couldn’t get much worse but from hearing stories from victims about their abuse in Allentown it’s going to make the Altoona-Johnstown report look mild,” said Rep. Mark Rozzi (D-Berks), who gave testimony to investigators a month ago in Pittsburgh.

“The number of people that I know that want to testify clearly outweighs the number that they were able to get in Altoona-Johnstown,” he said on Friday. “I think you are really going to see some horrific stories of abuse that you didn’t see in Altoona.”
