You can buy a white van for less than $20,000 (but I’m only guessing)

My father the trial lawyer used to tell us growing up that we should never volunteer information when on the witness stand, so in a way I guess he was a fan of the sin of omission.

I bring this up because Cardinal Dolan uses dad’s second gambit (answer truthfully, but bury the truth in a lot of noise) to obscure that he actually said yes when asked if he paid off pedophile priests:

Dolan, while serving as Milwaukee archbishop in 2003, agreed to pay multiple accused pedophile priests $20,000 in exchange for their agreeing to leave the priesthood, according to documents cited by The New York Times.

Joseph Zwilling, Dolan’s New York Archdiocese spokesman, told The Post last week that there was no “payoff” to pedophile priests — only “charity.”

“The New York Times does not have a reputation for fair and accurate reporting when it comes to this issue,” Dolan said yesterday after Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown. “So, to respond to charges like that — that are groundless and scurrilous — in my book it’s useless and counterproductive.”

But what is especially nice is that these ex-Priests and pedophiles that Cardinal Dolan set loose enter the secular world with ready cash and a clean record.
