Planned Parenthood to Be Investigated

Sarah Kliff of Newsweek just broke the news that Cliff Stearns (R., Fla.), chairman of the subcommittee on oversight and investigations for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood. She links to a detailed two-page letter that outlines eight in-depth questions the abortion giant must respond to, including a release of all of their internal audits for national Planned Parenthood and their affiliates since 1998.

Not surprisingly, Rep. Henry Waxman has posted a letter in protest saying that he is “aware of no predicate” for investigating Planned Parenthood. If Congressman Waxman would like to become better informed about the questions related to Planned Parenthood’s (mis)use of the over $360 million in taxpayer dollars that the abortion giant receives each year, he can read “The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood.”

Cleverness is the plague of our political classes, an influenza of the intellect. The consultants are always trying to ... Read More
