Tut, Tut, Tu!

Poor Father Joseph Tu Ngoc Nguyen. It seems like nary a month can go by without some uppity broad accusing him of abusing her when she was a kid. I mean, c'mon, the Houston Archdiocese said two years ago that the dude didn't like little girls — and if there is one trustworthy organization in this town when it comes to allegations of sex abuse, it's the Archdiocese.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported yesterday that the Fort Worth Catholic Diocese — where Tu used to work — filed a complaint with police after another woman accused Tu of abusing her in the 1970s. The 38-year-old woman, who was not named in the article, is the seventh woman to have accused Tu of sexual misconduct. Only problem is, the statute of limitations has passed. - Craig Malisow
