Many have clamored for a complete overhaul of the board at USA Gymnastics, but until Monday, only former USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny had lost his job.

Aly Raisman, one of the Olympic gold-medal-winning gymnasts who said she was sexually abused by Larry Nassar, blasted the U.S. Olympic Committee on Twitter, chiding the organization for "shamelessly taking credit" for the resignations of three top board members at USA Gymnastics.

Larry Nassar, the former team doctor of USA Gymnastics - who has been accused by hundreds of athletes of committing sexual abuse under the auspices of medical care - has been expunged from YouTube.

Like in her statement during Nassar's sentencing on Friday, Raisman called on USA Gymnastics and the USOC to open an independent investigation to uncover exactly what happened to assure more athletes who allege abuse in the future aren't ignored like in Raisman's experience.

Nassar is already serving a 60 year sentence for child pornography.

"How are we to believe in change when these organizations aren't even willing to acknowledge the problem", said Raisman during her statement last week.

"As the board identifies its next chair and fills the vacant board positions, we remain focused on working every day to ensure that our culture, policies and actions reflect our commitment to those we serve", says Perry.

Miller continued her statement, by asking Nassar to write down every single time that MSU, USA Gymnastics, and Twistars, the MI gymnastics club where some of Nassar's abuse occurred, "could have" and also "should have" stopped him from abusing his patients.

"I was absolutely mortified when you asked me if I started my period yet", she said in court.

Olympic medalists Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber are among the victims describing the devastation and betrayal they felt after being molested by Nassar.

The case has triggered calls for the resignation of Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon, while the state's attorney general has agreed to review how the university handled complaints against Nassar. "You preyed on me, on us".

Nassar, 54, is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. The support has been more than I could've ever imagined. "The bad abuse suffered by these young women is unconscionable".
