PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Inside the scandal involving Pennsylvania Catholic clergy, the state's attorney general, who led the investigation, told "CBS This Morning"  that the alleged cover-up stretched "all the way up to the Vatican." Shapiro reacted to Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik’s claim that “there was no cover-up going on.” “He’s not telling the truth and the church’s own documents prove that.” 

KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin aired a segement from "CBS This Morning" regarding Zubik’s remark that “the church of Pittsburgh today is not the church that’s described in the grand jury report.” “Child rape in 1970 is the same as child rape in 2018,” “It is unacceptable. And the idea that the bishop would just say, ‘Oh, this was a long time ago,’ is demonstrably false and it is absolutely the wrong response to this.”

"PA is a unique state - there’s no doubt about that - but unfortunately, there’s nothing unique about our problem with sexually abusive priests. This is a systemic issue reflective of the institution itself & we need stronger laws to protect our kids"  says Shapiro.
