This is not a pro or anti abortion article. As the title says it is about blatant misuse of taxpayer dollars and the Democrats and RINO Republicans who enable it. It will be one of the shortest articles I have published and will include links to articles with more details because the facts speak for themselves.
Planned Parenthood donated $734,000 to the recent failed Jon Ossoff campaign for Congress in Georgia. They were the second largest contributor to his campaign, second only to the Democratic Congressional Election Committee. http://truthfeed.com/planned-parenthood-donated-734000-to-failed-georgia-election/84123/
It is important to note that none of the Main Stream Media has even acknowledged Planned Parenthood’s involvement in that election.
Spending huge amounts of money on political campaigns is “standard operating procedure” for Planned Parenthood, their subsidiaries and their executives. They have a long history of heavy donations to liberal Democrats and liberal organizations. Some reports indicate that they donated as much as $20 million to Hillary’s recent failed Presidential campaign. Planned Parenthood and their subsidiaries are a mixture of 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations. 501(c))(4) tax exempt organizations are allowed to be politically active. http://freebeacon.com/politics/planned-parenthood-pours-cash-to-clinton/
Recently I published a detailed article about Obama’s criminal IRS rushing to hand out tax exempt status to groups who shared their America hating Ideology.

The CEO of Planned parenthood, Cecile Richards’ annual salary in 2014 was $590,000 dollars. I am sure it has increased every year since. In addition there are numerous other executives at Planned Parenthood, and their various subsidiary organizations with six figure annual salaries (some of them almost) as much as Cecile. http://www.lifenews.com/2015/07/01/planned-parenthood-president-cecile-richards-makes-590000-aborting-babies-for-a-living/
In addition to their bloated incomes the staff at Planned Parenthood, and it subsidiaries have fat benefit packages and excessive travel and expense accounts including travel on private jets.
Government funding for Planned Parenthood this year was $540.6 million. Over the last ten years it was over $4.3 billion. http://www.foxnews.com/tax-calculator/2015/07/24/government-funding-planned-parenthood-10-years
Republicans in the House defunded Planned Parenthood last year but Democrats and RINO Republicans insisted on putting the funding back in the budget. A Democrat had the gall to say that the $500 million was not really significant in the overall Federal budget, and RINO Republicans had the gall to agree with this statement!
Gall: brazen boldness coupled with impudent assurance and insolence.
Cecile Richards is the daughter of Ann Richards, a career hard Left Texas Democrat. As the old saying goes, “the apple did not fall far from the tree”.
As I have written in a number of my recent articles I hope the Democrats and RINO Republicans keep doing what they are doing. If they do it will assure that many of them will be replaced with Conservative Patriots in 2018, 2020, and 2022, and that President Trump will be re-elected in 2020 and replaced with a Conservative Patriot in 2024 (Mike Pence?).
