Portland NAACP president accused of sexual abuse

Detailed reporting by Portland Mercury news editor Alex Zielinski chronicles multiple allegations of sexual and psychological abuse by Portland NAACP president E.D. Mondainé. The allegations come from former members of Celebration Tabernacle, the North Portland Pentecostal church where Mondainé serves as senior pastor. Mondainé denies the allegations, and has announced he will no longer be running for a second term as president of the Portland NAACP chapter. We hear from Zielinski about her reporting.
