Don Lemon on Live TV: 'I Am a Victim of a Pedophile'
By PopEater Staff Posted Sep 27th 2010 05:51PM
"I have never admitted this on television," Lemon told three members of Long's church. "I am a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me."
Lemon then continued talking about the cloud of suspicion surrounding Bishop Long, the megachurch pastor who is accused of abusing several male teenagers that attend his congregation, the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church near Atlanta.
"I have never admitted that on television. I didn't tell my mom that until I was 30 years old," the 44-year-old newsman added later.
He later thanked his Twitter followers saying "I had no idea I'd say that on national TV. It just came out. Sadly, it's the truth for so many young men."
