Thanks to Derek Morr for the link.

Huffington Post report follows revelation that parents of Holocaust survivor and Jewish rights advocate Simon Wiesenthal were posthumously baptized, along with Mitt Romney's atheist father-in-law Edward Davies.

Whistleblower Helen Radkey, a former member of the church, told the Huffington Post that she discovered Frank's name on a database open only to Mormons, where the Jewish girl who died at age 15 was listed as "Completed" beside categories labeled "Baptism" and "Confirmation" with the date February 18, 2012.
