So now we have absolute confirmation that Karen Handel, former Sec of State of Georgia and current (for now) Vice President of Public Policy for the Susan G. Komen foundation personally devised to defund the Planned Parenthood with a scheme to invent a rule stating the Komen foundation would deny funds to any organization under investigation, knowing that Congress had an investigation of  Planned Parenthood underway.

According to the Huffington Post:

"'Karen Handel was the prime instigator of this effort, and she herself personally came up with investigation criteria,' the source, who requested anonymity for professional reasons, told HuffPost. 'She said, "If we just say it's about investigations, we can defund Planned Parenthood and no one can blame us for being political.'

"Emails between Komen leadership on the day the Planned Parenthood decision was announced, which were reviewed by HuffPost under the condition they not be published, confirm the source's description of Handel's sole 'authority' in crafting and implementing the Planned Parenthood policy."

We in Georgia have known about Handel for years, and it's nice that she's finally been exposed to the rest of America. She'll be polishing her high heels and getting ready to walk the unemployment line pretty soon. Maybe Rick Santorum's campaign could use another lying pseudo-Christian anti-woman soldier. 

Speaking of Sick Rick, Santorum continues his assault on all things female and again underscores his complete stupidity by insisting that abortions lead to cancer on (where else?) Fox "News" Sunday...  

"I don't believe breast cancer research is advanced by funding an organization that does abortions where you've seen ties to cancer and abortions," said a hoarse Santorum on "Fox News Sunday." In fact, a 2007 study published by the Archives of Internal Medicine studying 105,716 women found no link between breast cancer and abortions. Abortion services account for about three percent of Planned Parenthood's activities, while cancer screening and prevention accounts for 16 percent.

Hey, we're Conservatives -- we can't be bothered by stupid scientific facts!  Not about abortion, or cancer, or global climate change, or evolution, or anything! If it's not in the Bible, or wasn't uttered by Saint Reagan, it doesn't exist! How to you expect us to advance our anti-woman, anti-worker, anti-civil liberties, anti-minority agenda if you keep pelting us with meaningless facts?

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
