Recall this one? Planned Parenthood spent $1 Million to Elect Dems April 11, 2011? Clinton now hires Planned Parenthood to get out the vote. Then the government gives Planned Parenthood bucks, lots and lots of bucks. Otherwise known as money laundering. PP sells body parts, but no big deal apparently. Claims it performs mammograms which it doesn’t. But let’s not get bogged down in too many details. Here we go:
Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions annually and generates 40 percent of its annual revenues through the government. The billion-dollar organization receives about $500 millionfrom taxpayers each year through Medicaid funds and other grants. It received a large funding bonus from foreign policy agencies overseen by Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state, collecting more than $100 million for overseas services to the USAID.
Hillary Clinton paid Planned Parenthood thousands of dollars using campaign funds.
The Democratic frontrunner’s federal financial disclosures reveal that America’s top abortionist received four separate payments from the Clinton campaign. The payments were filed as reimbursements for “staff time” for volunteering and get out the vote efforts, as Clinton attempted to beat back the insurgent campaign of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in Iowa.
Even before the official endorsement, Clinton received financial support from the organization, collecting more than $20,000 from executives and employees of the national organization and its regional affiliates—20 times more money than the rest of the presidential field combined.
Clinton enjoys close personal relationships with Planned Parenthood executives. She was the recipient of the 2009 Margaret Sanger Award, the group’s highest honor. Prominent officials within the group worked for her failed presidential bid in 2008. Her current campaign hired Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ daughter, Lily Adams, to help with its ground game in Iowa and also employs a Planned Parenthood organizer to direct her Asian voter outreach.

Here is a bonus add-on, just so you know what fine fellows PP is.
Alliance Defending Freedom’s recent analysis of state and federal audits of family planning programs suggests that in 12 states, Planned Parenthood affiliates overbilled Medicaid for more than $8 million. One federal audit of New York’s Medicaid family planning program reported that certain providers, “especially Planned Parenthoods,” had engaged in improper practices resulting in overpayment.
There’s a whopping four-paragraph story headlined “Planned Parenthood finalizes $4.3 million lawsuit settlement.” That was an update of the earlier story they ran — the seven-sentence AP story that said the settlement was $1.3 million.
