Two Catholic priests in Florida stand accused of embezzling $8.6m (£4.6m) from their parishioners over a 42-year period and spending the money on holiday houses, luxury travel, gambling in Las Vegas casinos and secret girlfriends.Laundering money from the collection plates...$8.6 million!?! That's over $204,761 a year for the 42-year peoriod. Let's examine this. So, that would be $3937.69 per week of worship. Almost $4,000 a week for 42 years.
Hmm. No chance here that it started as a small peccadillo and morphed into something huge. It was just huge.
And no one noticed?
