California Attorney General Kamala Harris to Investigate Group Behind Planned Parenthood Abortion Videos
Not the people who were caught on camera selling baby body parts for profit, but the people who recorded the video - They will be investigated.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris will review whether the nonprofit organization behind controversial Planned Parenthood videos violated state law, her office said in a letter Friday.
Four Democratic congresswomen on Wednesday asked Harris and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to determine if officials from the Irvine-based Center for Medical Progress broke any laws when they posed as workers for a biotech company while recording Planned Parenthood physicians without their consent.
Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler and Yvette Clarke cited reports that founder David Daleiden filed paperwork to create a phony entity. They also asked the state’s top law enforcement official to look into possible violations of the Invasion of Privacy Act, which bars recording people without their permission.
“We will carefully review the allegations raised in your letter to determine whether there were any violations of California law,” Harris wrote in a reply Friday.
“This office will also review any materials filed by the Center for Medical Progress with the AG’s Registry of Charitable Trusts to determine whether the organization violated laws
