This is appalling. It looks like they are asking for a ton of documents for a 5 year period and giving them until tomorrow morning to deliver it.

Jesus H. Fucking Christ.

To The Texas Office of the Inspector General:

I believe you need new uniforms.

Presumably their first call was to the PP lawyers to ask about the protections for patient records under HIPAA. Absolute guarantee that this data will not be kept private once it’s in the hands of the Inspector General.

It doesn’t stop there -

Investigators with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s investigative arm delivered requests to Planned Parenthood facilities in all three cities asking for Medicaid records, billing information and personnel information, according to Planned Parenthood officials. A request delivered to a Dallas facility included request for files from clinics in Austin and Waco.

Given the ties that AG Ken Paxton (who is still under three felony indictments for fraud) and Governor Abbott’s have to militant anti-abortion groups, I would not be surprised at all to hear that they supply those same violent groups with the names, addresses and phone numbers of every employee and patient who was associated with Planned Parenthood.

By the way, if you don’t recognize the name of the Texas HHS head, he is the same Stuart Bowen who was Inspector General for Iraq’s reconstruction back in 2004 - you know, the same one who mysteriously “lost” about 7 billion dollars.

Imagine if you will, the absolutely shrieking from the RWNJs if Obama sent teams of ATF agents to NRA offices around the country.

I remember when the popular Obama meme amongst the right wing was that he was going to send jack booted thugs to harass people and kick down doors.

It turns out that the the far right is perfectly OK with jack-booted thugs- just as long as they are THEIR jack booted thugs.

It’s always projection with the GOP. Always.

Amazing to me that Texas is such a red state that people there are alright with that kind of bullying of an organization which helps scores of poor women gain access to healthcare. When will Texans start voting out the anti-women bullies?

I’m thinking 2043.

Perhaps when Texans start voting (more).

I sent my comment in an e-mail to the Texas Inspector General’s office.

I lived in Dallas for three years. It still amazes me that Texans consider themselves “freer” than all those librul states while putting up with police and a state government that would be more at home in some dictatorship. Texas is, on a personal level, the least free state I have ever lived in (and I have lived in 8). It is just one more law or infringement on personal freedoms away from being a true banana republic. And of course, as is true in any banana republic, the very rich and their big corporations are exempt from any regulations at all. Regulations and laws are for peasants.
