Video Tape, Donation Records Reveal More Daschle Ties to Pro-Abortion Groups
SIOUX FALLS The Ave Maria List, along with South Dakotans from across the state, have called on Tom Daschle to formally end his financial relationship with EMILYs List, and release the remainder of the video tape of Daschle addressing an EMILYs List fundraiser.
According to FEC records, Tom Daschles PAC has sent five checks totaling $10,000 to EMILYs List, which the Boston Globe called the abortion rights mega-PAC. Additionally, EMILYs List donated $5,000 to Tom Daschles PAC and Ellen Malcolm, founder and president of EMILYs List has donated $1,000 to Tom Daschles PAC.
Tom Daschle has given money and received money from a pro-abortion PAC, yet he still tries to tell South Dakotans hes anti-abortion, said Joseph Cella, executive director of the Ave Maria List.
Sharon Gray, from Vermillion, South Dakota, said that: Tom Daschles financial relationship with NARAL and now EMILYs List, coupled with his record of pro-abortion votes, proves irrefutably he has changed his position on abortion.
I once supported Tom Daschle because I believed the letter that he sent to South Dakotans where he called abortion an abhorrent practice, said Sharon Gray. But since then, Tom Daschle has voted for abortion 75 out of 83 times, and even raises money for several pro-abortion organizations, including NARAL, and now EMILYs List. We call upon Tom Daschle to return all the money that he received from EMILYs List, and to request EMILYs List to return the money he has given them.
On the matter of the videotape, Cella said: Tom Daschle is clearly trying to hide his record on abortion from South Dakota citizens. Why else would he pull it down from his webpage?
Lakota Sioux Tribal member, Jeanne Faber said Native Americans suffer from the highest abortion rate in South Dakota, and Tom Daschles votes have perpetuated this latest tragedy to affect our people.
Cella added: Tom Daschles votes, leadership, and words show that he has dramatically changed on this issue that was once important to him. South Dakotans will be stunned to see the evidence of how much Tom Daschle is deceiving them.
The Ave Maria List is a 501c4 organization with a connected political action committee.
He has three video clips of this on his PAC's homepage "www.dashpac.org" under "Agenda."
They are unreachable unless you properly sequence the URLs which were likely transposed to deny access.
They are available at www.daschledocuments.com."
His campaign is refusing to release the full 15 minute video tape, which is certain to expose him making openly pro-abortion comments. Entirely counter to his television ad campaign he is running.
We need to start a nation wide push calling on Daschle to release the video tape and transcript.
Daschle's negatives have gone up four points in the last two weeks.
Spread the word far and wide.
...about time. I've been telling the editor and the publisher at the journal to follow the money for months now...
...bad sentence, but I don't care right now...
Hugh Hewitt played some of the last debate with Thune and Dashole was hammered on his two-faced campaign. Methinks the word is getting out in South Dakota and Thune will win. Thune has a bunch of Native American support and the presstitutes cannot any longer control the facts....
Thune is gonna KICK IS DEEPLY SADDENED A**!
I like Emily's list. It's a great resource to use in finding candidates to avoid and vote against;
another example of politicians speaking with forked tongues.
That's not all he's concealing. More will come out. He can run, but he can't hide.
I've been posting info, news items, background and resources on the forums at the Rapid City Journal website. Some of those have actually been reported in the 'news' there recently.
http://www.rapidcityjournal.com/ ...left hand column about two thirds of the way down to get to the forums there. Wait for the pop-up...
It could happen.
This might be, just might be, the straw that breaks Daschle's back in this campaign.
Let's hope the truth is enough to convince SD voters.
Great post! I'm going to send this around. The title and the post do not seem to be exactly the same as the link you provided to the Rapid City Journal though. Where did this press release come from? Do you have a different link?
Sure he can.
They don't preface his name with "Lil" for no reason.
He could hide behind a clump of prarie grass, with room to spare.
You mean, like a mouse...I can see that.
Additionally, EMILYs List donated $5,000 to Tom Daschles PAC and Ellen Malcolm, founder and president of EMILYs List has donated $1,000 to Tom Daschles PAC.
This is exactly how the 'Liberal Party' of Canada launders all the 'Sponsorship' money.
Million's of dollars (only Can.$ mind you, but still!)have been
Lost, Mismanaged, and frankly....Stolen.
One hand washes the other, if you get my drift.
Would this matter? Sean Hannity said he was told by some Dakota voters that SD is intent on a Bush-Daschle "unity" election. People really are optimistic in the Dakotas.
Ugh! It will take 3 Ann Coulters, 2 Laura Ingrahams, and a series of Bush twins to get THOSE images out of my head.
Lord I pray that the good citizens of the great state of South Dakota elect a man who is anti death when it concerns Gods children in the womb. Please find it in your will to help us abolish the practice of murdering Your children in their mothers womb by removing all people who condone abortion from one of the highest offices in the land.
Hope some one will ask him why he left his first wife and three children in the early eighty's. The youngest daughter was about three years old. Probably had to do with where he was sleeping at the time. And yes his present wife, Linda, was in the equation.
I sure hope so. Right now, we could lose the Senate...Colburn is looking better though at least.
