California investigators raid home of guy who made doctored Planned Parenthood videos, take laptop and hard drives as evidence.

Courtesy of Politico:  

California investigators on Tuesday evening searched the apartment of David Daleiden, the anti-abortion activist behind the series of sting videos released last summer showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing fees for fetal tissue and organs. 

California Attorney General Kamala Harris said last summer that she would investigate whether Daleiden broke laws in the course of his sting operation, which spurred a huge political battle over Planned Parenthood's federal funding. Daleiden filmed part of his project in Planned Parenthood clinics in California.

Investigators took Daleiden's personal laptop and multiple hard drives from his Orange County, Calif., home, according to a source close to Daleiden. They also attempted to take his phone as he was talking to his attorneys, the source said. 

Daleiden has denied that he broke any laws. But officials with Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation and their allies say he used false identification, broke confidentiality agreements and recorded without consent, among other charges. Besides facing at least two civil lawsuits, Daleiden has been indicted in Harris County, Texas, for using false identification and trying to buy human tissue. He posted bond in February.

What? You mean you can't use a false identification and then doctor video to attack an organization that provides health care services for women?

Who knew?

I hope they put his ass away for decades.

    There is so much here "here" in this story. It boggles the mind. Republicans are sooooo stupid they think women are not paying attention.

    5 moments when Congress’s Planned Parenthood hearing got heated

    Cecile Richards, the president of the embattled nonprofit women's health-care organization, testified before a House government oversight committee about how her organization uses more than $500 million in annual federal funding.

    From the article:
    It was her first congressional hearing since an antiabortion advocacy group released videos this summer showing Planned Parenthood officials talking in cavalier terms about using fetal tissue for research. The videos implied that the officials were illegally selling the tissue for profit; Planned Parenthood officials say that the videos were heavily edited and that they did nothing wrong, as donating tissue for research is legal.

    [Planned Parenthood leader: Videos are 'offensive' and 'untrue']

    The videos reignited the religious right's antiabortion rights base, and Republicans in Congress and those running for president subsequently demanded that Planned Parenthood lose its federal funding (which cannot be legally used for most abortions).

      … and, according to PP, is not and never has been used other than for the specifically excepted cases.

  4. Go get him Kamala Harris!!!

    1. She's running for Barbara Boxer's seat.

      I so hope she wins. I can't think of anyone better to take over from the retiring senator.

    The fact that this weasel used false identification and creative editing to further their cause shows exactly why their cause is so damn specious in the first place.

    The charges in Texas were minimal at best. They offered him a plea and he turned them down.He said he and his female accomplice weren't doing anything illegal. He had more videos but he was under court order not to release them and the SOB released them anyway. This man is a zealot and they are unable to accept blame or compromise. Besides it's Texas....Kamala Harris on the. other hand will not be as leniant

    This is great news! Keep you eye on Kamala Harris. It looks like she'll be the next Senator for CA and I expect her to do important work.

      If she runs for the Senate I will vote for her. I like her. I would love for her to take Barbara Boxer's seat in he Senate.
      I voted for her both times for Attorney General of California.

    Book Him, Danno. And make public all the porn sites he's visited along with anti Abortion sites. I don't care how long, as long as everyone forgets his name. He seems like he's easy to make friends with, and I'm sure he'll do just fine.

  9. Great work Gryphen! You keep me informed about things I didn't even realize I didn't know! :-D


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
