The Clintonistas Set Their Wrecking Ball on Fred Thompson
The Left Coast LA Times has a story that attempts to link Fred Thompson to a pro-abort lobby group. This gist of the story:
"...the paper will claim that Thompson was "hired" by the National Family Planning and Reproductive Rights Association, whose director, Judith DeSarno, was acquainted with a then-partner at Arent Fox, former Congressman Michael Barnes. In fact, DeSarno worked as a senior aide to Barnes during his time in Congress. According to Arent Fox insiders, Barnes, who now directs the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and DeSarno are both well-known left-wing activists. Most recently, both were active against the nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Thompson was an adviser to Roberts, and served as his Senate "sherpa" during the confirmation process."
"Thompson was listed as an "enemy" by Planned Parenthood during his time in the Senate. He was twice endorsed by the National Right Life Committee, and had a 100 percent voting record on life issues during his time in the Senate. He has publicly stated his opposition to Roe v. Wade, federal funding for abortion and embryonic stem cell research." (source)
(*During the Bush 41 Administration FDT had a D.C. office at the aforementioned law firm, since his office was in TN, but was never a partner at the heavily Democratic Law Firm that has strong ties to the Clintons*)
Needless to say, I am sure this little unsubstantiated tidbit has been prompted by recent polls showing FDT closing in on Hillary without even declaring. He denies that he lobbied for this group categorically, but conveniently for the Clintonistas that pre-dated lobbying record-keeping, so it’s the word of a now-Democratic law firm and some Democratic activists...against Thompson.
The Clintons are scared and they are smart enough to know that a hot-button issue like abortion is a great place to try to take down the Fred-mentum... Pathetic, yet completely expected.
