Portland NAACP chapter president resigns amid sexual abuse allegations

Article here. Glad to see sexual abuse of men being taken as seriously for once. Though I wonder if there'll be criminal charges? Excerpt:

'The president of the Portland chapter of the NAACP resigned Tuesday, effective immediately, amid allegations of sexually abusing three men years ago.

Rev. Elbert Mondainé, who has denied the allegations against him, resigned more than a week after an explosive story by the Portland Mercury detailing the accusations made against him.

In a statement Tuesday, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said Elbert Mondainé’s resignation was effective immediately.

“The NAACP is firmly opposed to all forms of abuse, assault, harassment, or discrimination. Such behavior has no place in the Association, regardless of whether these instances occurred in previous or current administrations,” the civil rights organization said. “We are continuing to investigate the matter in accordance with our bylaws, and if necessary, will take additional and appropriate action.”'
