FPIW has released a new video following the discovery of a document that appears to show Planned Parenthood’s New York-based 501(c)(3) non-profit giving $75,000 to the Planned Parenthood Votes Washington PAC, in direct violation of federal law.
Planned Parenthood’s 501(c)(3) non-profit receives an average of $500 million per year from government sources. The fact that these taxpayer dollars are now being used to directly influence elections here in Washington is highly concerning.
The Planned Parenthood Votes Washington PAC that received the donation from Planned Parenthood’s non-profit has, so far in 2016, donated to the campaigns of Governor Jay Inslee, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, a candidate for State Auditor, and ten other legislative candidates.
Regardless of your feelings towards Planned Parenthood, it isn’t hard to conclude that when the officials who are supposed to be enforcing the law are being funded by those who break the law, it’s a definite conflict of interest.
Planned Parenthood is already suing FPIW to keep the records we’ve requested from being made public. You can learn more about that lawsuit and support the legal fund here.
