Bishop Eddie Long and Anthony Weiner: More Secrets About to Be Spilled

Congressman Anthony Weiner’s, D-N.Y., and Bishop Eddie L. Long’s troubles are far from over, according to inside reports.

As Long just finished the first wave of a humiliating, image-destroying, sexual assault case, another cultural storm is about to bombard the bishop’s religious empire at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in suburban Atlanta. Even as he is reportedly looking to expand his colossal ministry to include opening churches in Alabama and Denver — despite the considerable drop in attendance and membership — celebrity columnist Jawn Murray said that there will be new accusations to come out against Long that are even worse than the one just completed.

Murray, a celeb gossip columnist for the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,, did not reveal the source nor did he provide details. But Murray did say that his inside source is very reliable because he or she let him know that Long was about to be sued by several young men for sexual coercion last year, long before there was any public revelations of the scandal.

Weiner, on the other hand, is being thrashed about in the throes of a scandal of considerable size and depth. Like in the case of Tiger Woods and Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James, there are varying reports that there are more women that Weiner (a heck of a last name considering his very public transgressions) engaged in risqué sexual conversations and picture exchanges than he has let on thus far.

It’s not difficult to believe, considering that the fiery liberal Democrat initially denied that he was guilty of sending photos of his pulsating private parts to women. He even tried to place the onus on a hacker and the women he sent the X-rated pictures to.

We will keep you posted on the latest developments.
