Bishop Knew of Sexual Abuse, Did Nothing

For the first time on television, the former executive assistant to Buffalo’s Bishop Richard Malone explains why she decided to speak out against the bishop for not taking action against priests accused of sexual abuse

The Roman Catholic Church is facing its biggest crisis in the United States since the Boston sex abuse scandal 16 years ago. 13 states are now investigating whether abuse was concealed by church leaders, including bishops who head each diocese. We have learned one place under scrutiny by federal investigators is Buffalo, New York. In August, information about dozens of accused priests was leaked from the diocesan secret archive. What it revealed, infuriated many of Buffalo’s 600,000 Catholics. Tonight, you will hear from a priest who will share his direct knowledge about what he has called a cover-up. But first, the anonymous whistleblower who uncovered proof that Bishop Richard Malone withheld the names of dozens of priests accused of abuse.

Until now, Siobhan O’Connor had carefully kept her identity secret.

Siobhan O’Connor: I had to rely on God even more than I ever have before.

She is the whistleblower who leaked records from the secret archive of the Diocese of Buffalo. Siobhan O’Connor worked closely with Bishop Richard Malone as his executive assistant for three years. Last week she spoke with the FBI.

      Without personal experience of the kind revealed in the Buffalo scandal, there can be no empathy with regard to those who have been abused by members of the clergy. Moreover, lack of sympathy and legitimate concern for sexually abused individuals, and worse, lack of legitimate concern for children at risk within the Catholic Church, aids in the perpetuation of the cover-up of such abuse by members of the clergy, and demonstrates a disregard for the heinous acts of spiritual and physical violence by members of the clergy that continue to this day. Shame on those who choose not to recognize the horror brought to the light in this case in Buffalo, NY.
