California charges two anti-abortion activists with illegally filming Planned Parenthood employees.

California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent. 

The charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress come eight months after similar charges were dropped in Texas. 

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

Prosecutors say Daleiden, of Davis, California, and Merritt, of San Jose, filmed 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and El Dorado counties. One felony count was filed for each person. The 15th was for criminal conspiracy to invade privacy. 

Daleiden said in an email to The Associated Press that the "bogus" charges are coming from "Planned Parenthood's political cronies." 

"The public knows the real criminals are Planned Parenthood and their business partners," Daleiden said.

Actually what the majority of the public knows is that these people are political operatives who used doctored videos to damage and organization which provide a myriad of health care services to women all across the country.

If you have forgotten about these assholes, here is your reminder.

Essentially these folks tried to do the same thing to Planned Parenthood that James O'Keefe's carefully edited videos did to ACORN.

In the end however, besides smearing the reputation of Planned Parenthood, they were unsuccessful in destroying the organization. (Not that the conservatives are not still trying.)

Hopefully in a blue state like California these smear merchants will receive the justice they so richly deserve.

    OT?"the American judicial system has historically taken great interest in private sexual behavior; until fairly recently adultery was considered a criminal offense and sex was often at issue in divorce proceedings because of rules that required one party in the breakup to be found AT FAULT."

  4. The Acorn thing was published and promoted by Breitbart which is Steve Bannon which is backed by Robert Mercer and daughter "homely as a mud hen" Rebekah.

    Which is connected to Cambridge Analytica which has Bannon on the board, with millions of dollars infused by Mercers which fed the info to the army of Russian trolls who fed the info and fake news to millions of already fucked up Trump voters.

    The trolls are still working and doubling up in number of workers and locations. They are everywhere. Even here, as we know.

    "Watch my lips, Putin. We will castrate you and your Mafia Trump tribe in the U.S."
    (..even though it may be futile to find Trump's nuts. Mebbe' use Joni from Iowa with Sarah's help?)

    Ty che blyad.
    And have a nice day.
    I have other plans.

    Meanwhile, Missouri is refusing federal money for medicaid so they can refuse to pay for abortions with state money.

    This abortion bullshit HAS to stop. Abortion is legal PERIOD! That's it.

    It is a religious topic. YOUR religion belongs in your head, your heart, your home, and your church, not our government. Go to your church and bitch about it.

    How many hours and millions of dollars have these fanatics wasted spouting THEIR opinion of abortion and trying to control women?

    My god says their god is totally wrong and fucked up, now what? I don't believe in their god, now what? Their god is NOT the boss of me, they only believe he is, now what? Their god does NOT belong in ANY place paid for and supported by taxpayers. The end.

    When? When will this fake xtian bullshit end? It's costing millions of dollars both in the state and federal governments.

    This sick need to control and force YOUR will onto others has got to stop. Here's an idea, control your own fucking selves. Try that!

    "You can't even run your own life. I'll be damned if you'll run mine."

  11. In California, it is illegal to record someone without their consent either audio or video.

    That includes students recording their teachers on their iPhones in class.

    It's why we have those phone recordings warning you may be recorded for quality control. You must be warned and consent to be recorded. If you don't like it, you hang up and call back a different way.

    Daleiden was stupid to think he could get away with this in the state. While he *might* not get jail time, he'll certainly be found guilty and if no jail time he'll get a hefty fine and he'll have a criminal record.

    Don't fuck with California.

    (It's really too bad we couldn't get James O'Keefe on the same charges, but I suspect even he is too smart to pull his shit in California.)
