The Eddie Long story is tragic and growing more and more sensational.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Roy Barnes canceled a fund-raiser with Bishop Eddie Long last week after news broke that the popular DeKalb minister faced several sexual coercion lawsuits filed by male parishoners.
Now comes word from WSB-TV reporter Lori Geary that Barnes plans to hold on to thousands of dollars in campaign contributions the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pastor has donated.
Canceling the fundraiser seems like a good idea. I don’t fault Barnes for hanging on to the other money though.
