Why was the House Chaplain fired? Some say because he was critical of the Tax Cuts for the rich.

    Maybe this came back to bite him?

    Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi raised questions about Conroy after learning that the branch of the church he led - the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus - agreed to a $166.1 million bankruptcy settlement involving more than 500 active claims of sexual or physical abuse in five states. While she stopped short of rejecting his appointment, Pelosi briefly delayed it by asking for additional information. Once that matter was clarified Pelosi gave Conroy her full support.
