Following last week's revelations about decades of sex abuse and cover-ups in Pennsylvania dioceses, my colleagues have created a search tool that allows you to look through years of assignments of accused clergy. The thousands of records are organized by location and priest, and include assignments in Philadelphia. In other news, since this week's revelations about former Trump insiders Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort, the word "impeachment" has been floating around Washington but decidedly not on the lips of certain Democrats in our region.

The grand jury report released last week on sexual abuse and cover-ups in Pennsylvania Catholic dioceses included the assignment histories of 250 accused clergy. Now you can use our database to search for the assignments by priest or by parish.

Faith communities are still reacting to the news. The leader of the Knights of Columbus released a public letter Wednesday calling for a "full accounting" of any crimes and cover-ups.

Following news contained in the grand jury report, one Luzerne County town is grappling with a street named after an allegedly abusive priest.

On Tuesday, President Trump’s former lawyer pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts, including two campaign finance violations in which the president was implicated as a co-conspirator. Meanwhile, Trump’s former campaign chairman was convicted of tax and bank fraud.

The news spurred talks of impeachment in Washington. But Democrats in competitive districts, including our region, are avoiding the controversial word. Instead, they're focused on weeding out corruption and protecting special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in an effort to overtake the U.S. House.

Ride-share apps Uber and Lyft have exploded in Philadelphia over the past few years. The ride-share providers say they’ve increased mobility for the underserved and even helped reduce drunk driving.

Critics, on the other hand, blame them for hurting public transit ridership and making street congestion even worse.

Similar concerns drove New York City to put a limit on ride-share vehicles operating in the city. And Pennsylvania lawmakers are watching closely.
