Former Oklahoma Gov.

Former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, who resigned this year as head of a watchdog panel on clergy abuse, has told a conservative Roman Catholic magazine that a clergyman tried to undermine him by circulating a letter that accused him of keeping a mistress. Keating said the letter–it eventually made its way to American church leaders–also claimed he never attended mass. “Every word was a lie,” Keating said in an article he wrote for the October issue of the magazine Crisis.
