Report: Cardinal Warned Of McCormack's Abuses


CHICAGO -- Cardinal Francis George had been advised months ago to remove a priest now accused of molesting three boys, according to a report in Friday’s Sun Times newspaper.

The paper said a review board at the archdiocese advised the cardinal to remove the Rev. Daniel McCormack last October, but the cardinal ignored their advice.

A spokesperson for the archdiocese confirms the board gave the cardinal what they call “interim advice,” but claims there was no formal recommendation.
