Drunken bishops / clergymen. Any names?

Does anyone know of any bishops or other clergymen involved in any drunken incidents, or just general alcoholism? This can be recently (eg. Bishop of Southwark, Gene Robinson re: rehab etc), historic or comedic (eg Bishop of Bath and Wells)

Any answers at all would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

    Why do people expect an imperfect man to be perfect?

    do you ever get drunk? then, forgive, forget and go on with yourselves.

    It's not a big deal. We all have issues.

    However now it's not the clergy trying to get you under laws they cannot follow but the public (angry mob) itself. See?

    Let the one who never sinned, cast the first stone. We are not judges, but we are to share one anothers burden and practice forgiveness for all life has value.

    How can you ask this as Christians cannot judge and must go by the saying of Jesus, Let him without sin cast the first stone.
