Video of news conference: Third man sues Baptist megachurch pastor Eddie Long

Veronica P. Roberts wrote today that a third man has filed suit:

A 3rd person has filed suit against Bishop Eddie Long, at the Dekalb County court, accusing him of using his power as pastor and mentor, to seduce him into having sexual relations with him, states CNN.

23-year-old Jamal Parish, from the same church, has alleged that Long has been having sexual encounters with him since he was 17 years old and lasted until he was 22, which was last year.

CNN reports that a spokesperson has informed the media that Bishop Long will hold a press conference on Thursday morning to answer these allegations.
