Planned Parenthood’s millions still missing
Washington Times ^ | April 6, 2011 | Rita Diller

Posted on 04/06/2011 6:50:26 PM PDT by La Lydia

Last June, we broke the story titled “Planned Parenthood’s missing millions” that fo- cused on $1.3 billion of government money received by Planned Parenthood from 2003 to 2008, which was left unaccounted for when the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report on the expenditures of federal funds by the abortion giant. Our question to Planned Parenthood was: Where are those missing millions?

The Florida-based political “fact checker” Politifact joined with Planned Parenthood in a March 25 report headlined “Planned Parenthood funding: Did the GAO really find millions missing?” It attempted to exonerate the abortion giant’s lack of transparency in accounting for the large amounts of federal taxpayer money it received. However, they succeeded only in raising more questions.

To its credit, Politifact acknowledged the numbers in my June 2010 opinion article for The Washington Times are correct: Planned Parenthood’s annual reports show more than $2 billion in government income between 2003 and 2008. The GAO report could account for the expenditure of only $657 million of that amount, relying on information provided by Planned Parenthood in its own Single Audit Act reports. That leaves a huge question mark over the remaining $1.3 billion...

Bottom line: even the GAO doesn't know how much money PP got and where it went.

My question is, "Why didn't the Bush admin ask about this when they were still in office?" Obviously none of the bushies gave a sh*t about abortion, but that is not a news flash.

Killing is rather inexpensive in general. Some of the sickest humans beings to walk this Earth in modern times have made considerable fortunes through it.

The loss of each life itself cannot be quantified or calculated, much less the entirety.

From another article published today, Planned Parenthood pooled all their money into one big pot to pay for abortions.

This is an illegal use of Title X money.

Another story that states where the money went: to fund abortions!

Exposing the Planned Parenthood business model

The person who wrote that story is a former director for Planned Parenthood.

What really burns me is, We have a lot of “Corporations” committing FRAUD, TAX FRAUD, MONEY LAUNDERING... It is a rather long list of CRIMINAL ACTS, Why Have they not been Dissolved and EVERY SINGLE LAST DIRECTOR THROWN IN JAIL?? And ALL THEIR ASSETS SEIZED as Fruits of the Poison Tree?? If you or I were to do this we would be toast , All Assets Seized and a Long Long time in Federal Prison.

Gee, eye, that is so broad-brushed, it sounds like it boils down to an anti-free-market rant.

Do you have any specifics, such that we can check the veracity of the information you purport to be bringing to the discussion?

I agree there has been an unprecedented amount of corruption recently, but I would say that we have laws which should allow for successful prosecution of that. But such doesn't seem to work when the DOJ readily plays politic favoritism, "rewarding friends and punishing enemies".

Revoking the charter of a corporation and/or reflexively imprisioning all directors certainly puts the sentencing ahead of the Constitutionally-mandated due process, don't you think?

If Planned Parenthood is not held accountable to 32 members of Congress requesting information from the GAO about its income and expenditure of federal funds, how can we taxpayers ever hope to know to what extent Planned Parenthood is fleecing us?

Looks like someone's asking.

In the context of corporate waste, fraud and abuse “due process” has become a joke.

Short of a Law or Amendment to the Constitution Guaranteeing EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW for everyone, I don’t think so.
