Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for George W. Bush and prominent right-wing pundit, secretly helped guide Komen Foundation’s disastrous strategy regarding Planned Parenthood. Fleischer personally interviewed candidates for the position of “Senior Vice President for Communications and External Relations” at Komen last December. According to a source with first-hand knowledge, Fleischer drilled prospective candidates during their interviews on how they would handle the controversy about Komen’s relationship with Planned Parenthood.
Hm. This is starting to get like drawing back a glittery curtain of sequins and pink chiffon, only to find a load of maggot-infested manure steaming away behind it. What next from this supposedly apolitical, non-partisan charity? Or are they some kind of right-wing anti-choice PAC?
Is it time to take a look at their tax-exempt status?
