MADISON, Wisconsin, April 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Federal Elections Commission fined Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin for failing to report $116,898 in contributions to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold.

According to FEC documents, the abortion affiliate’s political arm reported $133,305.04 in expenditures on its October 2016 quarterly report, but that sum included two payments of $58,449.04 apiece, dated August 31, 2016, but not submitted in any previous reports. One was a donation to Clinton, who lost to President Donald Trump, and the other a donation to Feingold, a former Wisconsin senator who unsuccessfully attempted to retake his old seat from Republican Ron Johnson in 2016.

According to the FEC’s settlement statement, Planned Parenthood has agreed to pay a fine of $5,850 by Friday, April 6, closing the matter.

Fox News noted that the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund spent more than $30 million in support of Democratic candidates in 2016. This year, it has vowed to spend $20 million — the largest amount it has ever spent on midterm elections — to elect pro-abortion candidates in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

What do they care how much they spend? They just get more government handouts to cover it.

If PP can afford to give $30 million in support of Democratic candidates in 2016. This year, it has vowed to spend $20 million,
why are they getting taxpayer money?

How can a candidate receive funds from an organization who later supports legislation providing government funds back to that organization?

Bedrock question:

Should an organization that takes Federal funds be allowed to donate to political campaigns?

Let’s see, PP gets taxpayer money. PP then gives money to the likes of Mrs. Bill Clinton. I’m sure the NYT wouldn’t see anything wrong with this scheme.

Congress reckons they will get a return on their dollars when PP gives that money to their individual campaigns.

It is unbelievable isn't it? And Mitch the Bitch and Eddie Munster are A-OK with it. No problemo, PP.

An one time event?

Or tip of the iceberg?

OK Do I have this right? I go to work everyday, for many, many years. Taxes are held out of my pay to “run the government”. Some of these taxes go to Planned Parenthood, you know, for “women’s access to health care”. Planned Parenthood decides to like Hillary Clinton, so they take some of their money, which is from MY WORKING, and send it to Hillary or to try to get Hillary into office.

Is it not against the law for public funded companies to take part in political campaigns?

It IS.

Not only is it the cost of doing business, taxpayers will pick up the fine anyway.
