Daschle Concealing Video Taped Address To EMILY's Fundraiser
Rapid City Journal ^ | 10-19-04 | Joseph Cella

PRESS RELEASE Contact: Joshua Mercer October 19, 2004 734-323-9312

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 EMILY’s List, and release the remainder of the video tape of Daschle addressing an EMILY’s List fundraiser.

According to FEC records, Tom Daschle’s PAC has sent five checks totaling $10,000 to EMILY’s List, which the Boston Globe called the “abortion rights mega-PAC.” Additionally, EMILY’s List donated $5,000 to Tom Daschle’s PAC and Ellen Malcolm, founder and president of EMILY’s List has donated $1,000 to Tom Daschle’s PAC.

“Tom Daschle has given money and received money from a pro-abortion PAC, yet he still tries to tell South Dakotans he’s anti-abortion,” said Joseph Cella, executive director of the Ave Maria List.

Sharon Gray, from Vermillion, South Dakota, said that: “Tom Daschle’s financial relationship with NARAL and now EMILY’s 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 EMILY’s List. We call upon Tom Daschle to return all the money that he received from EMILY’s List, and to request EMILY’s 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 Daschle’s votes have perpetuated this latest tragedy to affect our people.”

Cella added: “Tom Daschle’s 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.

Daschle addressed an EMILY's List fundraiser in Washington, D.C. on April 1, 2004.

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.

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....

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.

This is exactly how the 'Liberal Party' of Canada launders all the 'Sponsorship' money.

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.

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.

Well, looks like not all of the Sioux nation will be voting for the leftist rats this time around. That's a good thing...

I can't believe anybody still thinks Daschle is pro-life.

He votes pro-abortion, he campaigns with pro-abortionists, and he hangs with Emily's List, the international feminist home of baby killers.

He can't be anything else but anti-life.

"Native Americans suffer from the highest abortion rate in South Dakota, and Tom Daschle’s votes have perpetuated this latest tragedy to affect our people.”

Let me just challenge the "victim mentality" at work here:
unlike some other tragedies that have "affected" her people, this one is self-inflicted.

Nobody goes around imposing abortions on unwilling Indians.

While I agree with the first part you said, in that it IS a "Victim Mentality" one also needs to consider that after generations of government-run schools and government-run health care programs, the "willingness" is merely being brainwashed into believing it's the right thing to do.

However, I have to take issue with the second part you wrote: Nobody goes around imposing abortions on unwilling Indians. because it's not true, or at least it's not true today. Do youself a favour and take a good close look at Margaret Sanger, and her Eugenics program that morphed into the modern day "Planned Parenthood". An attempt at genocide against anyone not of pure White European Stock - I have relatives who were not only forced into abortions, but were also then sterilized without their knowledge by left-wingers who thought that members of my family didn't deserve to breed because they were not white.

No, no one is forcing indians to get abortions, but the sad fact is that the large number of abortions that are encouraged by the liberals are just another painful reminder of an attempted "Final Solution" that was tried here in America in the 1930s and later - made into law in some states that were not even taken off the books until the 1980s in Vermont, for example.

I don't blame her for complaining about it and speaking out against it. Not one bit.

What tribe did your people come from? My daughter-in-law is a Tlingit from the Yukon and her mother and other Tlingits were removed from their tribe by well-meaning missionaries and forced to attend school elsewhere. Other things went on, I'm sure.

Ah yes, the infamous Bording Schools - Children of Indians were often forcibly taken from their parents. If they were light-skinned enough to pass for whites, they were often placed with white parents. If they were too dark, they got sent to the boarding schools and where they were treated horribly. A good example would be one of the Navajo Code talkers who told about his boarding school experience where he was chained to a radiator whenever he dared speak his language...

Anyway, I'm just glad that kind of crap isn't tolerated anymore...

My family is Mohawk, Mic Mac, and Blackfoot...

We're right near the Oneida Indian Nation. There are Mohawks (after all, we live by the Mohawk Valley!) in our history and also in Canada. One Mohawk has a Christian Bible College for Native students in Canada. We have supported that school. He's been to our Christian school with some of the students as well. Ross Maracle is his name. Mohawks are also very sure footed and work on the high buildings, as he demonstrated. Yes, they were all treated quite badly and ignorantly. M

A lot of people do not realize that Mohawks have worked on almost every major high steel project in the U.S. and Canada... Of course, that meant traveling a lot and sending money back to teh 'rez, but it was work ;0)

Sadly so.

It's very powerful in our Labor Party (Labor=Dem).

It's now almost impossible for a pro-lifer in the Labor Party to gain nomination to anything. Labor in Australia is probably more pro-baby killing than the Dems in the US. I'm sure its founders must be spinning in their graves!

BTW, thank you for your welcome. Much appreciated, but can you explain this "ping" thing that everyone's going on about. Thanks.
