This Week's Winner
Wisconsin: Father Patrick Umberger has been charged with possession of child porn. Last year Umberger was accused of repeatedly following little boys into the restroom at a water park. The water park ejected him, revoked his season pass, and placed his name on a predator watch list, but the Milwaukee Archdiocese took no action, saying they believed his claim that a prostate problem required frequent trips to the restroom. (But only when little boys were in there too.)
