McDonnell's Room Mate Priest Plead Guilty to Sex Charges Involving Other Men.

If McDonnell was trying to go for looking pious by moving in with a priest he didn't pick a good one to shack up with.

From the Richmond Times Dispatch:

The Rev. Wayne L. Ball, a Norfolk priest who pleaded guilty late last year to a misdemeanor sex offense, has been reassigned to St. Johnís Catholic Church in Highland Springs, according to The Catholic Virginian, a biweekly diocesan newspaper. The move is effective June 2.

Ball, 42, has served as pastor of Norfolkís Holy Trinity Catholic Church since 2000. The current pastor at St. Johnís, the Rev. David V. McGuire, will replace Ball at Holy Trinity.

In December, Ball pleaded guilty in Norfolk General District Court to the misdemeanor charge of frequenting a bawdy place. Norfolk police arrested Ball and a 41-year-old Richmond man on the night before Thanksgiving in a parked car in a Norfolk park. The judge continued Ballís case until July 8 and will dismiss the charge if the priest has no further criminal problems and completes 80 hours of community service by June 3. The man in the car with Ball received a similar deal.


McDonnell would be the same person who said Gays make inferior parents. Apparently, they don't make inferior Priests in McDonnell's opinion supported by his action of moving in with him.

1. "frequenting a bawdy place"

 

Well, I've been to a bawdy place or two, but not frequently.
