Is Cam Newton Responsible For The Action Of His Father?
It's not looking good for Auburn's quarterback Cam Newton's Heisman Chances...The Auburn quarterback is facing allegations that he and his family sought money for him to play at Mississippi State and that he cheated on his school work while a student at Florida...Now my husband is the football fan in the family and he in agreement with this post....my husband is crying foul and claim Cam is the victim here....If he is, he might turn out to be a "victim'' of his father, of what Cecil might have done to get his son into Auburn.....I don't know about that....but if the report is correct...it look like Cam father Cecil Newton Sr.church did receive some kinda of financial help....Cecil Newton 50 is a bishop who oversees five small Pentecostal churches in Georgia, including the church in the picture where he's also pastor, and another in Savannah, which is led by his sister-in-law, Gail Norwood.
The church has been in the news in Coweta County, Ga., often in the past year. According to stories in The Times-Herald newspaper, Cecil Newton's church was in danger of being demolished by order of the Newnan City Council in 2009 for failing to meet the city's building code. One story said Cecil Newton told the council last September the building would be brought to code "inside of six months." After numerous delays, extensions and compromises from the council, renovation work began last spring and The Times-Herald reported last week that the church is in compliance with Newnan's building requirements.
It sounds like his father got some cash from somewhere....the bishop couldn't get the building up to code then all of a sudden he has the funds to do it.
