Trouble in the Greek Archdiocese

This has been floating around for a while on the web and some news outlets. Can't say I am honestly shocked. There have been rumors for years of dodgy financial activity in the Greek Archdiocese. Back in the 2000's the OCA went through its own reckoning over shady bookkeeping and misappropriation of funds. Eventually the Holy Synod manned up and cleaned house. There was a lot of hurt and damaged trust. More than a few high ranking clergy wound up with egg on their face. The Metropolitan was packed off to a monastery in PA and the Chancellor was deposed from the clerical rank. The last I heard he had been excommunicated for refusing to accept the sanction.
