Keith gave a Sandusky pause when asked by his HR rep if he was masturbating in front of Erin Andrews.
HR rep: Keith, did you or have you ever masturbated in front of Erin Andrews?
Keith: Masturbated in front of Erin Andrews? What? Like jerk off? In front of Erin Andrews? Are you serious? Come on. Masturbate in front of Erin Andrews? No. I--what? That's silly. I would never masturbate in front of her. No. I didn't masturbate in front of her.
