An anti-abortion group on a high-profile campaign against Planned Parenthood has just hired a prominent whistleblower who used to work for the abortion provider, claiming she brings insider knowledge of the group’s “abuses.”
Live Action announced Wednesday that it had hired Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director in Texas, as its chief research strategist. Johnson made national headlines in 2009 when she quit her job after having a “change of heart” upon watching an abortion being performed on ultrasound.
In her new capacity, Johnson immediately got on board with Live Action’s sting operation targeting Planned Parenthood. Live Action has, since the beginning of the month, released more than a half-dozen videos in which undercover actors posing as a pimp and prostitute solicited advice from Planned Parenthood employees on how to obtain services for underage sex workers.

As School districts across the nation face what administrators are claiming is a lack of funding, Texas Conservatives counter such claims in their own state by citing examples of irresponsible appropriations and misuse of funds on top of gargantuan administrator salaries.
As scores of teachers are either being laid off or forced to dig deeper into their own pockets for classroom supplies, some Texas school administrators and left of center political interests have been quick to direct blame at Texas Governor Rick Perry for his defending of the state’s educational sovereignty. By refusing federal dollars, Governor Perry also rebuffed the attached efforts of the Obama administration to further regulate the education and curriculum of Texas students.
In an indicting editorial posted today on Texas-based texasgovote.com, a young Army National Guardsman named David Bellow took his local school board administration to task for the blatant mishandling of tax-payer funds. Bellow went further to shine light on another Texas school district’s blatant wasting of monies. He pointed out that Texas’ Beaumont ISD serves a city of approximately 100,000 individuals, yet the superintendent receives an annual $360,000 salary. He also pointed out that this gargantuan salary is amongst the highest of any public-sector official in the state and well over two times what the Texas Governor earns overseeing the entire state.
When trying to understand how such disrespect for tax-payers and their dollars could exist, it’s important to note that both of the school districts referenced by Bellow reside in long-time, good ol’ boy, Democrat-controlled counties where liberal fiscal irresponsibility abound and are the norm. Though many in the referenced counties vote conservative in national elections, they have historically voted for Democrats in local races. This has allowed a network of cronies and what would now be called “Chicago-style” politics to thrive without accountability. And much like their national party, local Democrats spend irresponsibly and make every effort to frame the problem as not having had enough tax-payer money in the first place. This dynamic is not unique to Texas and the feasible solution is not unique to the state either.

Tina Korbe of The Heritage Foundation, my employer, interviewed House Freshman on spending cuts. Korbe interviewed Representatives Mike Kelly (R-PA), Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Allen West (R-FL), Chip Cravaack (R-MN), Steve Southerland (R-FL) and James Lankford (R-OK). West declares in the video that ”it takes 5 miles to turn an aircraft carrier and if we don’t start now, we will never get this ship, the U.S.S. America, righted so that we can launch into a new future.” Agreed.
