This morning, MPR News reported that leaders in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis knew about one priest's sexual misconduct for years, but said nothing.

That priest, Curtis Wehmeyer, is now in prison for his sexual abuse of two teenage boys.

Jason Berry, writer for GlobalPost and author of "Render unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church," joins The Daily Circuit to discuss this case in the context of the larger church sex abuse scandal.
