WASHINGTON, D.C., August 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) The General Accounting Office (GAO) will investigate every dollar of federal funding going to Planned Parenthood, as well as other organizations that support the liberalization of abortion laws, for potential fraud.
The GAO will investigate the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the Guttmacher Institute, the Sex Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), the Population Council, and Advocates for Youth.
The comprehensive report will list every service performed and every federal dollar allocated, four Congressmen announced on Monday afternoon.

Rep Chris Smith (R) NJ, Sen David Vitter (R) LA, Rep Pete Olson (R) TX, and Rep Diane Black (R) TN
Holder won’t prosecute them anyway.
If this can be pointed out that there is a huge amount of fraud and waste of Tax Dollars, then this might be something that the Tea Party takes up as a way to end fraud in government.
OK, if you say so, we’ll take a look at them. We’re sure they are perfectly legal and harmless, but just to prove to you Tea Baggers that we aren’t just picking on you, we’ll “go after” some of our people.
Bingo. DOJ is ‘Dept of Just Us’ and PP is the ‘Us’ in Holder’s view.
Finally some good news for a change.
I’m soooooooo excited! I love when our commie overlords throw us a bone!
Only if you actually believe this dog & pony show means anything
if only every “committee in the House” would do some research on spending - that might fix some of the problems of our out of control government.
agree- take heart in good news, rarely as it comes.
This might even make some MSM organs.
Rep Pete Olson (R) TX,...”
So Pete decided to at least seem to be doing something useful. Must be election soon.
If anything comes of this accounting, Holder’s wife, as actual owner of an abortion clinic,would force Holder to recuse himself.
No it wouldn't. Nobody will touch him. He knows it.
There are also former employees of PP that have switched sides and exposed the PP fraud.
Texas was able to go after Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast because of a former employee.
So if some taxpayers help to provide info, then this might do some good.
Anything is possible, but realistically unlikely.
You are assuming at least a minimal degree of law and lawfulness. Minimal is a best case scenario. Until a sizable number of people in this country realize that laws are very flexible and change at the whims of our masters, and not to our benefit, then nothing will change for the better.
PP is a sacred cow of those in power. They will not let “the law” get in the way of protecting it.
We are in a police state. Not almost, not on the way to becoming one. We - are - there - now. A lot of people think that because they haven’t personally felt the heel of the boot on their neck it isn’t here yet. They couldn’t be more wrong.
An organization getting federal subsidies despite a sordid record of both racism and child abuse.
Add NOW and NAACP to the list!
I would say that Gosnell has lifted that rock.
By the way, SEICUS works quite adamantly that "sex after eight is too late."
PP and child murder are “sacred ground” according to Pelosi and now Wendy Davis- they will fight tooth and nail and Rs will again be smeared as cutting off needy, poor women from “healthcare”-and finally, because most who receive said “healthcare” are black, the Rs will be called racists and the DOJIRSFBI will investigate the Right to Life people instead for civil rights violations and close them down getting rid of a thorn in PPs side...or something like that.
No way will they harm one of their “sacred” cows...
and if we get close to the truth, they will just change their name and melt off into the esters.
Praise the Lord for these fine Congresspeople. This investigation is long overdue. These pro-abortion freaks have take many illicit dollars from taxpayers. This is the kind of issue all Conservatives can agree upon. Republican Congresspeople should be spending a lot more of their time on such issues that all Conservatives can agree upon.
I only hope the backlash isn't too extreme, and doesn't involve veils and bhurkas for women.
The Planned Parenthood "healthcare referral" scam is long running and it has taken decades to end.
Celebrate the ending of it! The billions of dollars they have skimmed off taxpayers for decades may actually be deverted to local health services instead.Where poor women get actual medical care, instead of cheap pamphlets with phone numbers.
Huh? This is the first I’ve heard of holders wife owning a clinic!
Holder’s wife does own an abortion clinic. Believe it is located in Atlanta. Sick stuff. Pervasive evil, making money off of killing little beginings. Guess for liberals, if you can’t see a child growing in mom’s nest,it’s ok to kill it. Wonder if they feel the same way about bird eggs? Etc.
Honest. I’m not trying to be combative here. But do you have the name or other references? I’m just so surprised that this is not already common knowledge.
Ok. Wow. You are right and the story is pretty bad. How in the world did this never headline??
