A second man has come forward with allegations against Bishop Howard Hubbard.

Anthony Bonneau, 40, claims he was paid for sex by the bishop when he was a teenager in the late 1970's. Bonneau said he was homeless at the time, living in Washington Park.

Bonneau said the bishop would come to the park regularly.

A spokesman for the Albany Diocese said Hubbard stands by his statement Thursday that he has never broken his vow of celibacy.

The bishop was denying he had a homosexual relationship during the 1970's with a man who later committed suicide.
