On April 6th 2016 David Daleiden released this statement:
“Today, the California Attorney General’s office of Kamala Harris, who was elected with tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood’s criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information. Ironically, while seizing my First Amendment work product, they ignored documents showing the illicit scheme between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood. This is no surprise–Planned Parenthood’s bought-and-paid-for AG has steadfastly refused to enforce the law against the baby body parts traffickers in our state, or even investigate them–while at the same time doing their bidding to harass and intimidate citizen journalists. We will pursue all remedies to vindicate our First Amendment rights”.
In response to this outrageous overreach in government authority and obvious misuse of position, California residents staged a protest on Wednesday, calling for the resignation of AG Harris on the grounds of political corruption, and using the hashtag #KorruptKamala to support the campaign on social media platforms.
When addressing a crowd at the state’s capital in Sacramento, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America said:
“California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who sent agents to raid the home of a citizen journalist who exposed Planned Parenthood’s practices of harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies, is using her Senate campaign website to advocate for the abortion giant, promoting a petition to defend Planned Parenthood. Ms. Harris is engaging in exceptionally corrupt behavior, using her office as AG to aide a staunch supporter of her campaign. This is exactly the kind of puppeteering and blatant conflict of interest that the American public is sick and tired of. Ms. Harris should immediately resign her position as the California Attorney General.”
On Thursday, Daleiden accused the DA’s office of illegally colluding with planned parenthood, in court documents, and is seeking to dismiss his current charge of falsifying records (using a fake I.D.).
Prosecutors are offering pretrial diversion, which is essentially a probation period, to Daleiden and Sandra Susan Merritt who is facing similar charges.
You would basically have to be living under a rock not to have noticed that there are growing concerns about political corruption throughout the United States. A recent Gallup poll revealed that three in four Americans (75%) acknowledged that corruption was widespread throughout the U.S. government. It also found that over the last 10 years, this opinion has increased from just 66% in 2009.
Kamala Harris has not done anything to inspire trust in her pro-life constituency, and has clearly demonstrated her willingness to compromise the integrity of the Attorney General’s office. We stand together with pro-life Californians and continue to remain steadfast in our stance against the victimization of the unborn, and corruption within our democratic system.
