Letter to the editor: Thankfully, Trump is against Planned Parenthood

TO THE EDITOR

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined a political faction of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin for failing to properly report $120,000 in expenditures supporting Hillary Clinton and Russ Feingold in the 2016 election.

Wisconsin Planned Parenthood filed a report in October 2016 claiming it spent more than $133,000 on political candidates, which produced a discrepancy. The FEC found $120,000 spent supporting Clinton and Feingold in August 2016 was not shown in any previous filing up until the final October report, two months past the required reporting date.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Planned Parenthood will be fined $5,850 for the infraction, which the group alleged its failure to report on time was due to [drum roll please] ... a clerical error! The group alleged "This error was due to a misunderstanding of the requirements by filing staff, who mistakenly believed 48-hour reports were not required unless expenditures were made within 20 days of the election.

"This training has been added to a compliance checklist for election-related processes."

The nation's largest abortion mill murders millions of unborn babies every year and still funded one-half billion taxpayers' dollars, annually, (thanks to Democrats and Wisconsin RINO, Speaker Paul Ryan).

President Trump and his Administration continue its fight to end the senseless killing of millions of unborn babies. Planned Parenthood's odious Chief Executive Officer [Democrat] Cecile Richards, whose annual salary was $ 900,000, released her book last week. Richards reports that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump tried to "bribe" her with the lure of additional federal funding if only Planned Parenthood would agree to STOP killing unborn babies.

Not surprisingly, Richards turned the money down and cannot explain how this interaction — a private echo of the very public offer made by President Donald Trump — amounts to bribery.
