    (title should say IOC)

    Watching it live...the olympic committee is suspending the French judge! They claim they have evidence that she did bad things.

    The ISU seems to have reccomended that Canada and Russia both get the gold!

    Update: They're giving Canada a gold! And letting Russia keep theirs!

    They refuse to give us the evidence they found, though.

    Great to hear this! How much hypocrisy can institutions spew before people revolt? It made me laugh to hear the French Olympic head admit improper pressure was applied to the French judge, but nothing wrong was done. Huh? Contradiction?

    Then he tried to pawn it off on the mistranslation by the AP reporter. Hah! - the AP reporter speaks french, and conducted the interview in french.

    Unless they want to remain in the backroom quagmire, they'd better understand to infuse more transparency into the process. That means releasing what they discovered to be improper.

    It sounds like the right conclusion for this sordid affair.
