Federal officers arrested New York Bishop Lamor Whitehead and brought charges against him alleging he conned a 56-year-old congregant of her life savings, bullied a businessman for $5,000, and lied to the FBI.

US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams stated: “As we allege today, Lamor Whitehead abused the trust placed in him by a parishioner, bullied a businessman for $5,000, then tried to defraud him of far more than that, and lied to federal agents.”

Bishop Whitehead has been a friend of NYC Mayor Eric Adams and in 2015 while Adam was running for Brooklyn Borough President he introduced Whitmore on stage as a “good friend and good brother.”

As a response to Whitehead’s arrest Mayor Adams’ spokesperson released an email from Adam stating “While these allegations are troubling, I will withhold further comment until the process reaches its final conclusion.”
