New York, February 21 - Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the
archbishop of New York who will vote in the upcoming papal
conclave, has been questioned by prosecutors about sex-abuse
cases against Roman Catholic priests, a spokesman for the New
York diocese has confirmed.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which Dolan led from 2002
until 2009, faces allegations from hundreds of people and has
said it is going broke due to some $9 million in legal fees.
He is the second American cardinal to be asked by
prosecutors about sex-abuse cases in the weeks leading up to the
conclave to elect a new pope, which will commence soon after
Benedict XVI formally resigns on February 28.
The other cardinal is Roger Mahony, the retired archbishop
of Los Angeles who must answer questions under oath Saturday
about a visiting Mexican priest who in 1987 is believed to have
molested 26 children.
Pressure on social media and advocacy groups has been
mounting in recent days for Mahony to stay home from the
conclave.
Dolan has been mentioned as a top American candidate for
pope, though he is considered a longshot.
