Sex abuse victims protest NYC's new archbishop

Sex abuse victims protest NYC's new archbishop

NEW YORK -- Advocates for victims of clergy abuse say the man chosen to head the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York hasn't done enough to address the problem of abusive priests.
The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests handed out leaflets about Archbishop Timothy Dolan in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan on Thursday.
The abuse victims' group says Dolan let known predators work in Milwaukee, where he is currently archbishop. He will take over the New York Archdiocese on April 15.
Dolan has defended his record in fighting abuse. In 2004, he released the names of priests who had been accused of molesting children.
A spokesman for the New York archdiocese says it has policies to deal with sex abuse.
