Clinton-Backed Haiti Pastor Indicted on Child Misconduct Charges

Clinton-Backed Haiti Pastor Indicted on Child Misconduct Charges

(ReliableNews.org) – In 2008, Corrigan Clay co-founded a non-profit organization, Apparent Project, which helps lift poor people in Haiti out of poverty. On March 10, police arrested the US pastor on charges of sexual abuse against one of his children.

The grand jury for the US District Court in the Western District of Pennsylvania concluded that between the beginning of 2014 and the end of 2017, the pastor traveled to Haiti and abused a child in his care who was under the age of 18. The alleged victim was one of the children in his care, though it’s unclear whether it was one of the pastor’s adopted or biological kids he shared with his ex-wife.

His ex-wife, Shelley Jean Clay, told The Daily Beast she isn’t against finding the truth about the situation and her children have lived with her since reports came to light. Her ex-husband is in a Pennsylvania jail awaiting a court hearing on March 15.

Shockingly, or perhaps not, the agency seems to have ties to former President Bill Clinton, who visited the non-profit group and previously supported its efforts. There’s also speculation the Clinton Foundation gave grants to the accused predator’s other Haitian organization.

If convicted of the charges, Clay faces up to 30 years in prison.
