Does the Archdiocese owe Lynne Abraham an apology?

    Sparked by revelations in other cities across the country, then-District Attorney Lynne Abraham led an investigation into the Archdiocese of Philadelphia nearly 10 years ago.

    The accounts of rape she uncovered were hotly denied by the diocese in 2005. Her personal character was called into question.


    Well we all know how that one turned out. Philadelphia magazine’s Robert Huber is thinking maybe now the archdiocese should issue an apology to Abraham, since replaced by Seth Williams.

    Abraham probably isn’t holding her breath, but Huber makes a good point in that the archdiocese’s denial seems to have no bounds.
