Giuliani's accused-priest problem.

Andrew Sullivan links to Deal Hudson's post on Rudy Giuliani's paid consultant (and childhood friend) Msgr. Alan Placa, who was accused of sexual abuse in a 2003 grand-jury report and has been suspended from ministry for the past five years. Andrew asks the right question: Where's the press on this story? Given the vigor with which many reporters have pursued the Catholic Church's sexual-abuse scandal, why have so few stories been written about Placa and Giuliani?

Grant Gallicho joined Commonweal as an intern and was an associate editor for the magazine until 2015.
