Lila Rose, Glenn Beck pouting because the DoJ won’t prosecute Planned Parenthood
Lila Rose, the head of the anti-abortion activist group LiveAction, decried Eric Holder’s statement on Tuesday that the FBI will not prosecute in connection with a LiveAction video “sting,” which was aimed at catching Planned Parenthood employees looking the other way on sex traffickers.
“An untold number of women, and possibly underage girls, are being exploited and likely in danger and the Justice Department is looking the other way,” Rose said in a statement…
The FBI launched an investigation into the potential sex trafficking ring after Planned Parenthood alerted them to the pattern (before the videos were released, and before it was revealed that LiveAction was behind the incidents), though they acknowledged at the time that it may have been a “hoax.”
“It is my understanding that the FBI actually has looked at that matter” and “prosecution was declined in that matter,” Holder said.
Beck is furious with Eric Holder for opting to not play along with two fake scandals dreamed up by the conservative fringe: Live Action’s attempted smear of Planned Parenthood and the manufactured New Black Panther case. He’s even angrier because Holder won’t enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, despite the fact that Holder actually will. But the actual facts in these cases are irrelevant. All that matters is that the Attorney General refuses to turn the Justice Department into the enforcement arm of the conservative movement.
