After almost 30 years with the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP), national executive director David Clohessy is stepping down. He said it has “absolutely nothing to do with the litigation.” He referred to the lawsuit alleging that SNAP colluded with clergy sex abuse victim’s lawyers. “Just time for a change on my part,” said Clohessy.

    So, are you saying he is Retired?

    ONCE AGAIN, KITTY WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY! Anyone who reads my comments knows I have said for years that SNAP was referring their alleged victims to lawyers like bottom feeder Ken Chakass – who gets the lion’s share of these cases in the metro area – in return for kickbacks, this time disguised as “contributions!” I saw thru this scam years and years ago. So, let’s hope SNAP gets snapped in half and is taken to the cleaners! Or the AG shuts them down for being acorrupt.

    And to make it even worse for Clohessy, SNAP and their corrupt lawyers, it was reported in today’s issue of L’Osservatore Romano that The Holy See soundly rejected SNAP’s application to open a branch office inside the Vatican and further decreed that SNAP cannot operate any type of facility within a 10K mile radius of Vatican City.

  • Frank Lostaunau says:

    I’m a member of SNAP and I work as a Volunteer for BishopAccountability, tracking down photos of Catholic clergy who rape and sexually torture children and vulnerable adults.

    I have always admired David Clohessy as well as other SNAP staff. They have always been kind and supportive.
