Ex-employee calls for review of archdiocese files

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A former Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis employee is calling for a “comprehensive, external review” of priest files.

Jennifer Haselberger released a statement Saturday asking Archbishop John Nienstedt to publicize a list of clergy who have engaged in acts of sexual misconduct, as well as those who could pose a threat to children.

Haselberger worked at the archdiocese from 2008 to last April, when she resigned because of concerns about the way sexual abuse allegations were handled.

She is at the center of an investigation about pornography on one priest’s computer. On the day new information was revealed, the man who held the No. 2 post at the archdiocese resigned.

In a statement Friday, the archdiocese says it has a zero tolerance for sexual abuse of minors or vulnerable adults.
