Maloney slams latest phony Republican investigation into Planned Parenthood
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) today voted against measure to create a new select committee to investigate Planned Parenthood. Maloney spoke in opposition on the floor of the House and released the following statement:
“I take very seriously the Congressional responsibility to investigate wrongdoing and improve transparency, but this panel is not at all about due diligence – it is about purely partisan politics – an attempt to ‘Benghazi’ Planned Parenthood.
“Six states have already investigated Planned Parenthood and found nothing. Four committee hearings have found nothing. Planned Parenthood has handed over tens of thousands of pages of documents to Congress and there has not even been a whiff of wrongdoing. Even the Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has said he has no evidence of anything unlawful.
“This panel would be a waste of Congress’s time and taxpayers’ money. Congress must end this relentless crusade attacking access to healthcare for women who can least afford it.”
