WSB reports Barnes keeping Eddie Long donation

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Roy Barnes will keep some $5,000 in campaign contributions from Bishop Eddie Long, despite pending lawsuits against the Bishop accusing him of coercing male members of his congregation into sexual relationships, according to WSB-TV.

Barnes spoke to WSB reporter Lori Geary regarding the donations.

“The allegations are troubling, but there’s not been one deposition taken,” Barnes told Geary. “Let’s let the legal process work.”
