A fund to feed and bathe young boys run by a child molester?

Hmmm - CT Post fails to mention that it also wrote articles in the past praising/recognizing Perlitz's accomplishments. Funny that is mentioned in these recent reports.

Unfortunately, perpetrators of all kinds of crimes are very skilled at hiding their acts. Look at the "BTK" killer. He got away with his crimes for years and was very involved in his church. It is really too bad that Fairfield University will be involved in this scandal and that a program helping some of the most needy in Haiti had to have this happen. I hope that these children will continue to be helped, but by those that will do it the right way and for the right reasons.

I wish posters would READ AND COMPREHEND THE WHOLE STORY. Obviously, Perlitz was not known to be a child molester when he was at Fairfield U or for some time later. Perhaps he hid it for some years. It is good, tho that he has been stopped.
He definitely fooled many people that were helping and contributing to this charity because of their good intentions.

Fairfield University investigators should contact Cyrus Sibert [email protected] a Haitian reporter who uncovered the scandal and raised the flag to the authorities. Fairfield University could also help the Northern foundation of haiti that also supported the fight against pedophiles.

No wonder they kicked out Egan from the Archdiocese of New York as its spiritual leader. Under his auspices of the Diocese of Bridgeport, he allowed Priest abuse to flourish. Now it's this pedophile. What is Bishop lori doing about this? Nothing? Where's his statement?

Dave, If you think bribing kids with food, water, and shelter in exchange for sexual acts is helping the children in Haiti then this philanthropic organization did its job.

Sure, they fed and bathed them and then performed pedophilia. I would think the children are therefore messed up for life, don't you?
