One of the most prominent Catholic priests in Chicago who campaigned for Obama in 2008 has been ousted following revelations that he raped a child.

Father Michael Pfleger, the longtime pastor at St. Sabina Church, was asked by Cardinal Blase Cupich to “step aside from ministry following receipt by the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office for Child Abuse Investigations and Review of an allegation of sexual abuse of a minor more than 40 years ago.”

Pfleger agreed to his request and will live away from the parish during an investigation by the archdiocese.

The allegation has also been reported to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, which might end in criminal proceedings against Father Pfleger.

Suntimes.com reports: Pfleger, 71, did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday evening.
