The criminal division of the Internal Revenue Service is looking into the finances of Planned Parenthood Golden Gate...
Agents for the criminal division of the I.R.S. interviewed a former employee of Planned Parenthood Golden Gate on Tuesday at the Oakland field office, in response to a complaint he had lodged.
That informant, who declined to be named for fear of how it might affect his future job prospects, said he raised concerns about the financial relationship between the organization and its political arm, as well as about accounting practices.

This article may mean there are changes that have occurred at the New York Times. They are attacking a Sacred Cow -- Planned Parenthood
All of these things happened when this entity was part of Planned Parenthood and was part of the Planned Parenthood National Chain of Clinics
This implies Planned Parenthood of America was responsible for the oversight of these clinics -- which they apparently failed to do.
Taxpayer dollars are used to finance Planned Parenthood
A few years back Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles was found guilty of Tax Fraud
So I definitely think there is smoke to warrant further investigate of taxfraud, taxcheating, and government waste of money in Planned Parenthood...
Pro-Life ping — this might be the tip of an iceberg to start some IRS investigations into other Planned Parenthood affliates...
I.R.S. took down Capone, GOD needs to take down planned parenthood. I.R.S. just isn’t bad enough to do it.
This is just another criminal investigation the Obama administration will derail for political reasons, without notice by the MSM.
I am going to use FreeRepublic.com to help promote such stories and hope that TEA Party candidates, once in Congress, will follow up on these things.
It is the whole point of TEA Party.
From the story, it sounds like tax dollars (California, Federal, local) has gone from Abortion/contraception to political coffers (such Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer).
Need to get the word out...
Ironically, my posting of the story was the same day as the interview with the former Planned Parenthood with the IRS.
How this story is breaking is interesting...
FWIW, your blue underlined words look like hyperlinks.
Sorry. I use color in my posting for emphasis. I want certain key things to stick out...
Could taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood Services be going to the political arm of Planned Parenthood?
Planned Parenthood Plans to Spend $1 Million to Save Pro-Abortion Barbara Boxer
by Steven Ertelt
July 29, 2010
Sacramento, CA (LifeNews.com) -- Carly Fiorina, the pro-life Senate candidate in California, is presenting pro-abortion Sen. Barbara such a tough challenge that Planned Parenthood says it plans to raise and spend $1 million attempting to save the seat of its closest ally in the Senate.
"I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe life begins at conception," Fiorina has said in a television interview.
She added, "In my particular case, my mother-in-law was told to abort her child, who became my husband. She chose something different, obviously, and that made all the difference in her life and mine and certainly his."
Those pro-life views run counter to the way in which Boxer has defended everything from taxpayer funding of abortions to partial-birth abortions in the Senate, refusing to vote for or allow even the most modest abortion limits most Americans support.
Kathy Kneer, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, told the Associated Press today that her group believes Boxer will come out on top in November because polls show a majority of California residents back legalized abortions.
But the victory she assuredly believes Boxer will win won't come without a hefty pricetag: one million dollars.
AP quotes Emily Buchanan, executive director of the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life women's group that has already invested $200,000 for Fiorina and says it plans to sink an equal amount into the general election battle.
She said Boxer is the more extreme candidate because she supported taxpayer funding of abortions in health care.
"Taxpayer funding of abortion is what was discussed in the health care bill ... and that message is what resonates," Buchanan said. "Nobody wants to be paying for abortion, no taxpayers."
A poll last week from SurveyUSA was the first to show Fiorina leading Boxer.
Boxer is trailing the Republican challenger by two points, 47-45 percent, in the survey of likely voters released late last Monday. Fiorina has been closing in on Boxer's lead over the last several polls form different polling firms, so the new SurveyUSA results are not surprising.
In a statement on its poll, the firm says Fiorina benefits from more Democrats supporting her candidacy than Republicans who back Boxer. And independent voters back the pro-life candidate 49-40 percent.
"Twice as many Democrats cross-over to vote Republican as Republicans who cross-over to vote Democrat. The Republican has an ever-so-slight advantage in Greater Los Angeles and in the Central Valley," SurveyUSA said.
Looking at voters based on abortion, 71 percent of pro-life voters are behind Fiorina while 22 percent support Boxer. Of pro-abortion voters, 59 percent favor Boxer and Fiorina is getting the support of 32 percent, showing the crossover appeal she has.
Nothing wrong with using color, I do it myself on occasion. It’s the underlining that leads to confusion. Especially blue words with blue underlining.
Namely, have this explode in Planned Parenthood's face.
Planned Parenthood gets money from the state of California. If this found going into the pockets of politicians, this could be a major criminal investigation...
I will have this kitten take care of the blue underlining:
Maybe I can get this kitten to join the IRS to go after Planned Parenthood
