Title: SNAP asks governor to order state investigation of church
Author: KATC News
The Louisiana chapter of SNAP has asked Gov. John Bel Edwards to direct State Police to investigate the Catholic Church.
The organization, which represents and speaks for survivors of sexual abuse by priests, believes that the recent declaration of bankruptcy by the Archdiocese is an effort to seal evidence in sex abuse cases.
In a letter, the state’s SNAP president, Richard Windmann, pleads with Edwards to direct State Police to conduct “a statewide investigation of the Catholic church.”
We’ve reached out to the Governor and to State Police to confirm their receipt of the letter, and for responses. We also have requested a response from the Archdiocese.
