The Democrats appointed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to a special committee investigating Planned Parenthood for its sale of aborted-baby body parts have received tens of thousands of dollars in donations from Planned Parenthood.
“All totaled, the abortion industry has paid more than $305,000 for the six Democrats appointed to the Select Investigative Panel tasked with investigating Planned Parenthood,” noted Matthew Clark in a commentary at the politicalRedstate.com.
“These are far more than abortion rights supporters; these members are handpicked by the abortion industry. They are practically on Planned Parenthood’s payroll,” he wrote.
Named by Pelosi to be the minority party’s representation on the committee were Reps. Diana DeGette of Colorado, Suzan DelBene of Washington, Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Jerrold Nadler of New York, Jackie Speier of California and Bonnie Coleman of New Jersey.
Appointed earlier to chair the committee was Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., The Hill reported.
It is similar to the select panel investigating Benghazi.
Then-House Speaker John Boehner said already three committees have been looking into a series of undercover videos that reveal Planned Parenthood officials negotiating for payment for the body parts of unborn babies.
But Boehner said Congress still doesn’t have “the full truth.”
“Chairman Blackburn and our members will have the resources and the subpoena power to get to the bottom of these horrific practices and build on our work to protect the sanctity of all human life,” he said at the time.
The other seven GOP members are Reps. Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania, Diane Black of Tennessee, Larry Bucshon of Indiana, Sean Duffy of Wisconsin, Andy Harris of Maryland, Vicky Hartzler of Missouri and Mia Love of Utah.
Planned Parenthood immediately accused Blackburn of being “one of Congress’ most extreme opponents of safe and legal abortion.”
The Media Research Center, through its Newsbusters outlet, said, “It’s called following the money trail – and the media should do more of it.”
The report said Planned Parenthood has given the six Democrats in the range of $80,000 directly.
