Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., says she’s running for president to make the big, bad lobbyists pay.
But the minute her campaign starts humming, she was caught not only hiring a big lobbyist… but one who works for a group that supported infanticide.
The Massachusetts senator has been on fire as former Vice President Joe Biden stumbles from gaffe to gaffe. She’s drawing huge crowds (for a Democrat) and even passed Biden as the frontrunner—and she’s trying to keep the momentum going by hiring campaign staff for next year’s primaries.
When it came time to hire the person to manage her ground campaign in the make-or-break swing state of Florida, she tapped a registered lobbyist.
Warren promised to “end lobbying as we know it,” and promised that “lobbyists won’t be able to take government jobs for 2 years after lobbying”–but she says she’ll make “limited exceptions” for “the national interest.”
Meet Exception Number One.
That would be Kimberly Diaz Scott, who took her new job as Florida State Director of Warren for President and leave her five-year stint as Director of Public Policy for the state chapter of Planned Parenthood.
That chapter has a checkered history supporting outright infanticide — the murder of babies born alive, outside the womb.
The Florida Association of Planned Parenthood Affiliates sent one of its lobbyists to oppose a state bill that would have required abortionists to care for babies who are accidentally born during the abortion process.
Planned Parenthood’s hired gun said the “abortion” should be allowed to go on—after the child’s alive and kicking!
“If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?” a lawmaker asked the group’s representative, Alisa Lapolt Snow.
“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” Snow said.
In other words, let the infanticide begin.
A congressman asked, “What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
Snow tried to wriggle out of answering, but another Florida State Representative got her on the record one more time.
“You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion, that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?” he asked during the 2013 hearing, unable to believe his ears.
She said one more time, “That decision should be between the patient and the health-care provider.”
Snow’s days were numbered… and that’s when Scott walked through the door.
She saw the media coverage and thought this was exactly the kind of organization she wanted to work for, so she signed on in December 2014.
