Ben Graber 2

Ben Graber is an abortionist who in 1988 examined and performed an abortion on a 10-year-old girl whose father brought her in pregnant. A Democrat lawmaker at the time, Graber, who ran the Women’s Awareness abortion clinic in Coral Springs at the time, never filed a report on the child for possible sexual abuse. Graber has been active in politics and has served in several capacities as a lawmaker in the state for Florida.

In 1988 South Florida abortionist Benjamin Graber, examined a 10-year-old girl whose father brought her in pregnant.

Graber performed an abortion on the child and returned her to the father who was later accused of raping her.

Despite mandatory reporting laws in the state of Florida, Graber did not inform the state of the possibility of incest at the time of the abortion, according to news reports.

Officials were never notified of the suspicion of abuse by Graber but found out only when hospital ER physicians examined the sister of the 10-year-old that Graber aborted who was taken to the emergency room for medical care.

By the time child protective services reached the children ( ages: 12,10,8 and 7 ) news reports indicated that the father had allegedly molested most of them.

This was two-years after the father brought the pregnant 10-year-old to Graber, for the abortion.

Joanne Richter, executive director of the Broward County Sexual Assault Treatment Center stated to the press that Graber should have been aware of the possibility of sexual abuse and called authorities.

Graber never faced any charges for failing to report the sexual abuse of this child. Some believe that his connections as a Florida State House Representative at the time played a role in the decision to not prosecute.

Graber has avoided penalties from abortion malpractice lawsuits as well:

Graber loses suit teen abortion

Years later, when abortionist Benjamin Graber decided to close one of his Graber Gynecological Affiliates medical offices in Pompano Beach, Florida where he performed abortions, he sought out another doctor to sub-lease the office, because he was still under a lease contract with the owners.

Graber arranged to sublease the office to another abortionist by the name of Vladimar Rosenthal who owned the Today’s Women’s Medical Centers (abortion clinics) in South Florida.

The Miami Herald had earlier reported that several former employees of Rosenthal went to the Herald complaining that that the conditions at Rosenthal’s clinics were not good for patients. The employees showed the paper records that Rosenthal was paying them commission to sell anesthesia at the door. The state inspected Rosenthal’s abortion clinic and found several obscene pictures of unconscious women with their legs apart belonging to Rosenthal’s male nurse.

Employees said they were fired when Rosenthal was told that they had complained about the conditions at the clinic to the National Abortion Federation.

Despite the fact that the above allegations were reported in South Florida newspapers, and on record with the State Department of Professional Regulations, Graber chose Rosenthal to sublease his office. In a letter explaining to the owner of the building why Graber chose to sublease the facility to Rosenthal, Graber described Rosenthal as, “an excellent tenant who has been successfully in practice for a number of years.”

In 1988, Graber was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, where he became Deputy Majority Leader of the House. His colleagues elected him vice chair of the Broward Legislative Delegation in 1990 and chair in 1991. In the Legislature, he chaired the Joint Legislative Information Technology Resources Committee, the Health Care Committee, the Subcommittee of Lottery and Gaming Regulated Industries Committee and the Subcommittee on Oversight on Health and Rehabilitative Services.

Since these incidents, Graber has been elected as a Broward County Florida Commissioner and served as the 2005-2006 Mayor of Broward County. He lost a bid for a Florida State Senate seat in 2006 but says he is not through with politics yet. House colleagues say that in the clubby world of the Legislature, Graber was an outsider because you couldn’t tell what position he would take. His bills sometimes suffered because of it.

In 2010 Graber ran for the United States Congress as a Democrat.

“He was a maverick. He often did his own thing [to his detriment],” recalled former state Rep. Jack Tobin, D-Margate.

Board suspends license of Florida NAF Affiliated abortionist for failing to report sexual abuse of 12 year old child

Posted in Abortion, Abortion and Sexual Assault, Abortion clinic covers sexual abuse, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortionist, Ben Graber, child predator, Michael Benjamin with tags , , , , , on October 3, 2011 by saynsumthn

The State of Florida suspended the medical license of an abortionist for failing to report the sexual abuse of a 12 year old child, after the abuser took her to him for an abortion. Dr. Michael Benjamin, who is a member of the National Abortion federation, told state officials he said he didn’t think he needed to report abuse because he believed the girl’s story that she got pregnant from consensual sex with a classmate. According to a story in the Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel (below) , the unidentified girl came to Benjamin for an abortion in November 2009 with her mother and the adult boyfriend, according to the state complaint against him, which states that he talked to the girl and mother only for only 6 to 8 minutes before the abortion. The girl’s pregnancy was not reported until months later by her regular pediatrician. Gainesville area detectives later linked the pregnancy to the mother’s boyfriend, who is now serving a 15-year sentence for sexual battery.

NOTE: Michael Benjamin is a Florida Abortionist who has worked at several locations including West Palm Beach: Presidential Women’s Center, and the Florida Women’s Clinic formerly owned by Joyce Tarnow ( Read her ideas here) and is a member of the National Abortion federation and verified on the NAF Website here.

Earlier this year: Operation Rescue reported that:
Another NAF Abortion Clinic Transports Injured Woman Via Ambulance

Pro-lifer witnessed an ambulance rushed to the Presidential Women’s Center abortion clinic in West Palm Beach, Florida, last Saturday, April 9, 2011, to transport a woman to the hospital for emergency care.

The abortion clinic offers abortions through 23 weeks gestation and is a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), an affiliation of abortionists with notoriously poor health and safety records.

This was the third reported emergency transport witnessed by pro-life activists from an NAF abortion clinic over the weekend of April 8-9, 2011.

The abortionist on duty at Presidential Women’s Center during the medical emergency was Michael Benjamin, who has a history of Medical Board discipline and has a current public complaint on file, according to the Florida Department of Health. ( Read story Here )

NOW…his medical license has been suspended for failing to report the sexual abuse of a 12 year-old child :
According to this Sun-Sentinel Story:

State suspended Tamarac doctor who didn’t report pregnant 12-year-old as possible abuse
By Bob LaMendola, Sun Sentinel October 1, 2011

Florida health regulators voted on Saturday to indefinitely suspend the medical license of a Tamarac obstetrician who did not report as possible child abuse a 12-year-old girl who was six months pregnant. But he will challenge the ruling.

Dr. Michael Benjamin told state officials he believed the girl’s story that she got pregnant from consensual sex with a classmate who lived nearby. He said he didn’t think he needed to report it. Authorities later convicted the boyfriend of the girl’s mother in the pre-teen’s pregnancy.

The Florida Department of Health filed a professional disciplinary case against Benjamin, saying the law requires doctors to automatically report cases of sex involving children under 16. No criminal charges were filed against him.

The unidentified girl came to Benjamin for an abortion in November 2009 with her mother and the adult boyfriend, according to the state complaint against him. They live in the Gainesville area and found Benjamin’s name through an abortion hotline.

The girl’s mother insisted she did not know of her daughter’s condition until the girl was 24 weeks pregnant and had not taken her for prenatal care, state records show.
Benjamin told state investigators he was satisfied there was no child abuse after talking to the girl and her mother for 30 minutes. He is a father of four, a grandfather of four and takes seriously his role in detecting child abuse, he said in a letter to the medical board submitted by his lawyer.

But the state complaint says Benjamin’s notes in the case say he talked to the girl and mother only for only 6 to 8 minutes before the abortion.

The girl’s pregnancy was not reported until months later by her regular pediatrician. Gainesville area detectives later linked the pregnancy to the mother’s boyfriend, who is now serving a 15-year sentence for sexual battery.

Benjamin and state officials had proposed settling the disciplinary case by him paying an $8,000 fine, receiving a reprimand and taking remedial courses, according to records in his case.

But on Saturday, the Florida Board of Medicine, which oversees doctors, rejected the the deal. Instead, the board voted to suspend Benjamin’s license until he undergoes an assessment and comes back to the board for another review. He also would be fined $10,000 and have to perform community service as well as take courses.

Benjamin’s attorney, Michael Spicer, said the doctor will contest the ruling by taking the case to a state administrative judge, allowing him to keep practicing medicine while the case is pending.

How does Abortionist Michael Benjamin View his Abortion Patients?

In Testimony before the House Health care Committee, Full Committee Meeting September 14 and 15, 1989, Florida House of Representatives, abortionist Michael Benjamin described the average abortion patient in a derogatory way, “I think it is basically a personality type who generally has her life out of control and unfortunately nowadays there are no shortage of people in general whose lives are out of control. They drift, they tend to live for the moment in terms not only of their sexual practices but in terms of their economic lives and they are people in general who don’t think beyond the moment, who don’t plan for tomorrow, and who really will take life as it comes and deal with the rest later. …

This was not the first time a high profile abortionist covered the sexual abuse of a child in South Florida:

Updating: Elect an Abortionist for Congress 2010

Posted in Abortion, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion employee elected, Ben Graber, Politics, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2010 by saynsumthn

Seems like 2010 will be the year that actual baby killers run for office.

2/2010 UPDATE: State Sen. Ted Deutch won a Democratic special primary election Tuesday to succeed former Rep. Robert Wexler, giving him a decided edge in the April 13 special general election in Florida’s solidly Democratic 19th District.

Wexler, a seven-term Democrat, stepped down last month to become president of the Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation.

Deutch, who had the backing of Wexler and former President Bill Clinton in his bid, trounced former Broward County Mayor Ben Graber 85 percent to 15 percent, according to unofficial returns – but that probably will NOT Stop his campaigning for another office , and Nan Hayworth won hers.

Below is a “Letter” sent by one of Hayworth’s detractor’s on a local blog:

I am pro-life.
It bothers me a little, but doesn’t matter to me in the grand scheme of things whether your father, or sister, or ex-husband performs abortions.
I expect that you still could retain a measure of independence, and represent the best interests and will of your constituents.
What has always bothered me though, is that Nan Hayworth’s husband was the Chairman of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists District II (NY) and author of their legislative program.
If you google Scott Hayworth and ACOG, you’ll find numerous letters, legislative brochures, etc., from Hayworth to the State Legislature, advocating for extreme pro-abortion positions, including the EXTREMIST RHAPP bill, which would close Catholic hospitals that do not perform abortions.
Now that I’ve finally posted this online, it will likely get deleted by tomorrow, but straight from the horse’s mouth:
Under the leadership of Chairman Scott Hayworth, “ACOG District II/NY continues to affirm the legal right of all women to obtain a safe and legal abortion and have timely access to other reproductive health services and medications, including emergency contraception. ACOG District II/NY supports initiatives to assure that quality health care is available to meet every woman’s needs throughout her life and assure a full array of clinical services are available without costly delays or the imposition of geographic, financial, attitudinal or legal barriers.
The Reproductive Health Act (RHA) protects a woman’s private and personal decision about when and whether to have a child, while modernizing and updating current New York State law. Specifically, it enshrines a woman’s fundamental right to control her own reproductive health and ensures that a woman will be able to have an abortion if her health is endangered at any point in her pregnancy. Further, RHA treats the regulation of abortion as an issue of public health and medical practice and guarantees every woman the right to use or refuse contraception.
In 1970, when New York was one of the first states in the nation to expand access to safe and legal abortion, its law was considered an important step to protect women’s health
and reduce maternal morbidity and mortality. Much has changed since then and while medical practice and policy have advanced in New York, the law has remained nchanged.
RHA will ensure that New York State continues to protect and respect women’s health and the right to make private reproductive health care decisions, no matter what happens in the Supreme Court.
Recommendations:
* Support legislation to improve women’s access to reproductive health care
services and medications, including emergency contraception and abortion.
* Oppose legislative attempts to limit a woman’s right to access reproductive health
care services.
ACOG District II/NY looks forwarding to working with our medical specialty partners, state legislators and policymakers to ensure that the 2009 legislative session is successful in advancing women’s health care initiatives in New York State and obtaining the optimal solution to issues of importance to the practice of obstetrics and gynecology.
(signed)
Scott Hayworth, MD, FACOG
Incoming Chair
ACOG District II/NY”

Here was my previous post on Nan Hayworth:

And in New York – Republicans are backing another pro-abortion candidate whose husband admits he did abortions ( But claims they were only to save the lives of women.)
In the article: A Doctor Seeks The House reported in CQ (12-9-2009)

New York Republican candidate and Ophthalmologist Nan Hayworth is challenging New York Democratic Rep. John Hall.

Republicans are thrilled: “She is a very exciting candidate,” said Pete Sessions of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. “She is going to broaden the spectrum of people listening to the Republican message.”

CQ also reports that the Republican may have a few hurdles to overcome, at least one would think she would. But instead, the Republican leadership is doing flip flops over her. CQ states, Hayworth is more moderate on social issues, which could be a challenge should she face a primary rival. In particular, she is pro-choice, though she said she opposes late-term abortions and would have voted for the Stupak amendment in the House’s health care legislation to bar any chance that federal funding is used for abortion procedures.

But Wait – That is not all. Hayworth has another hurdle, CQ continues: Hayworth could also face questions about her husband, Scott, an obstetrician who in the past performed abortions when the life or health of the mother was at stake, none of which were late-term, her spokesman confirmed.

But good old republican leader Pete Sessions doesn’t hold that against her. After all Pete, just having a Party Platform which states that Republicans are pro-life is no reason to hesitate on a Republican Candidate who is “Pro-baby killing” and who is married to an abortionist? No- don’t let that “Big Tent – throw the baby out with the bath water – literally” mentality stop you !

CQ again: Sessions, for one, said he did not think Hayworth’s stance on abortion would be a major issue in the race, noting that late term abortion “is where the battle is being fought right now.”

And here is information on the DEFEATED Ben Graber:

In South Florida, Benjamin Graber is running for Congress, on the democratic ticket. Graber is a long time abortionist who ran two gynecological offices – One in Pompano and one in Coral Springs Florida – where he openly performed abortions. Graber has held several offices already , most notably a place in the Florida State House – where pro-lifers claim he used his “Title” to avoid prosecution when he failed to report suspected child abuse of a few young children he aborted (Story Below)

In 1988 South Florida abortionist Benjamin Graber, examined a 10-year-old girl whose father brought her in pregnant.

AD Below: Vote for Ben Graber and he will make sure his pocket is padded with Tax Payer Dollars that will go to fund abortions – No personal profit motive here since Graber is an ABORTIONIST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is important to note that Ben Graber “claims” he supports women’s rights to abortion – but former abortion clinic owner Joyce Tarnow may differ with Graber on that. Graber bailed on Tarnow years ago – leaving her to hold the bag on a lawsuit:

This article from the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel explains:

Clinic Owner Says Graber Not Paying His Share Of Fees
May 09, 1993|By Buddy Nevins
Is State Rep. Ben Graber putting money before women?

He is stiffing us. He is shafting us,“ said Joyce Tarnow, the owner of the Women`s Clinic in Oakland Park, where abortions are given.

It is revolutionary for Tarnow to throw darts at Graber, the pro-choice champion of the Broward legislative delegation and a physician who operates abortion clinics.

But that`s what happens when money is involved.

Graber`s clinic, Tarnow`s clinic and the Broward chapter of the National Organization for Women all were ordered to pay the attorney`s fees for the anti-abortion Moral Majority last month.

Broward Circuit Judge Arthur Birkin decided that the three had frivolously sued the Moral Majority and ordered them to fork over $22,138. If one doesn`t pay, the others must pick up the slack.

That`s where Graber comes in … or ducks out. He doesn`t want to pay and has attempted to shield himself through a corporation that is now defunct, according to Tarnow.

Graber, D-Coral Springs, did not return three calls for comment.

Here is a doctor who claims he is the friend of the pro-choice movement who is dumping on us. We can hardly afford to stay open, much less pay his share,“ Tarnow said.

Tarnow said the debt, which continues to increase as the Moral Majority attorney files motions to collect it, could drive her clinic out of business.

Broward NOW, which has an annual budget of about $12,000 , has already said it faces bankruptcy because of the award.

According to the Sun-Sentinel – Graber addressed the lawsuit in his book which came out in 1990. It’s called “Abortion: A Citizen’s Guide to the Issues.”

At the time, Graber had been accused of not paying explaining a litany of lawsuits and some liens in his history, which then Florida Rep. Robert Wexler brought up:

In the late 1980’s and 1990’s I was targeted by radical Anti Abortion movement. They picketed my offices, my home and blockaded my office on many occasions. I filed a lawsuit to stop them and throw them out of Broward./ Loss of revenue from my business and legal fees were mounting. All the liens and suits were related to my business establishments and the aftermath of that battle. Everything was payed. The women’s group NOW was a party to the lawsuit, they wanted to settle. I refused. They had to pay their share. I continued the suit and eventually won. Liens were attached to my home by a few creditors from my business. The IRS liens were payed promptly but remain on record indefinitely. The North Carolina property was payed months ago. It was late by a couple of months, an oversight by my book keeper. This is the same stuff Wexler used in 1996. He knows the grief I and my family suffered from the Radical Anti abortion Movement. He is just an opportunist. Thanks.

“I was a champion of Women’s rights for years and continue to be one. I also ran for Congress to reform our health care system so all Americans would be covered properly. That is why I am running now. I reformed Health care in Florida in 1993-1996 successfully with a precursor to a national health plan. In Congress I will expand that program Nationally. I view public service as an obligation on my part, to help my fellow American. After all it was Americans that saved my family from the Holocaust and gave me a chance at life.”

Editor’s note – You can “Win” a lawsuit by closing a business and therefore wala – no more suit ! Graber the big-man defender of so-called “Women’s Rights” bailed on NOW and Tarnow- no question, but then again, I could care less, except to report this for those pro-abortion voters who do !

Abortionist looses Democratic Congressional bid in Florida

Posted in Abortion, Ben Graber, Children, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2010 by saynsumthn

2/3/2010

State Sen. Ted Deutch on Tuesday won the Democratic nomination to replace former U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, defeating former Broward County Commissioner Ben Graber.

In the Republican primary, contractor Ed Lynch held a narrow lead in early results over financial planner Joe Budd and a wide margin over retired police Officer Curt Price.

Deutch earned Wexler’s endorsement soon after the former congressman announced in October that he would step down from his seat and went on to gain the support of other local, state and national Democratic leaders. Deutch’s fundraiser with former president Bill Clinton in January pushed his fundraising past the $1 million mark.

Deutch will face either financial planner Joe Budd (R) or Edward Lynch (R), who ran for the seat in 2008, in the April special election. Lynch was leading by less than 50 votes with 95 percent reporting.

Not regularly reported, Ben Graber is an abortionist who has held several other political offices, including a position as a Florida State Representative.

Some believe that it was that high power state position which was used to skate a charge that as a “Physician” and a “Mandatory Reporter”, Graber failed to report child abuse and possible rape when he performed an abortion on a very young child which had been brought to him by her father.

In 1988 South Florida abortionist Benjamin Graber, examined a 10-year-old girl whose father brought her in pregnant.

Graber performed an abortion on the child and returned her to the father who was later accused of raping her.

Despite mandatory reporting laws in the state of Florida, Graber did not inform the state of the possibility of incest at the time of the abortion, according to news reports.

Officials discovered the abuse when hospital ER physicians examined the sister of the 10-year-old that Graber aborted who was taken to the emergency room for medical care.

By the time child protective services reached the children ( ages: 12,10,8 and 7 ) news reports indicated that the father had allegedly molested most of them. This came two-years after the father brought the pregnant 10-year-old to Graber, for the abortion.

Joanne Richter, executive director of the Broward County Sexual Assault Treatment Center told the press that Graber should have been aware of the possibility of sexual abuse and called authorities.

Graber never faced any charges for failing to report the sexual abuse of this child. Some believe that his connections as a Florida State House Representative at the time played a role in the decision to not prosecute.

Graber claims to be a protector of women. But, years later, when Graber decided to close his Graber Gynecological Affiliates medical offices in Pompano Beach, Florida where he performed abortions, he sought out another “doctor” to sub-lease the office, because he was still under a lease contract with the owners.

Graber arranged to sublease the office to abortionist Vladimar Rosenthal who owned the Today’s Women’s Medical Centers in South Florida.

According to news reports printed in the Miami Herald years earlier, several former employees of Rosenthal went to the paper to expose that that the conditions at Rosenthal’s clinics were not good for patients. The employees showed the paper records that Rosenthal was paying them commission to sell anesthesia at the door. Then, when the state inspected Rosenthal’s abortion clinic, they found an envelop on the premises which contained several obscene pictures of unconscience “patients” with their legs apart. The “pictures” admittedly belonged to Rosenthal’s male nurse, Barry Alan Hill. Hill was written up in a disciplinary action by the state while the abortion clinic continued seeing women, “business as usual”.

Employees told the newspaper that they were fired when Rosenthal was told that they had complained about the conditions at the clinic to the (NAF) National Abortion Federation. Rosenthal’s abortion clinic was a member of NAF which claims that they monitor the “safety” of abortion clinics.

Despite the fact that the above allegations were reported in South Florida newspapers, and on record with the State Department of Professional Regulations,now known as the Agency for Health Care Administration, Graber chose Rosenthal to sublease his office. In a letter explaining to the owner of the building why Graber chose to sublease the facility to Rosenthal, Graber described Rosenthal as, “an excellent tenant who has been successfully in practice for a number of years.”

Voters in parts of northern and central Broward along with southern Palm Beach County can cast their ballots beginning Monday to fill a U.S. congressional seat left vacant by the midterm resignation of Representative Robert Wexler.

On the Democratic side, state Senator Ted Deutch from Boca Raton is going up against former legislator and Broward County Commissioner Ben Graber.

Republican candidates include financial planner Joe Budd, contractor Ed Lynch and retired police officer Curt Price.

But – Who is Ben Graber?

Ben Graber is an abortionist who in 1988 , examined a 10-year-old girl whose father brought her in pregnant.

Graber performed an abortion on the child and returned her to the father who was later accused of raping her.

Despite mandatory reporting laws in the state of Florida, Graber did not inform the state of the possibility of incest at the time of the abortion, according to news reports.

Officials were never notified of the suspicion of abuse by Graber but found out only when hospital ER physicians examined the sister of the 10-year-old that Graber aborted who was taken to the emergency room for medical care.

By the time child protective services reached the children ( ages: 12,10,8 and 7 ) news reports indicated that the father had allegedly molested most of them.

This was two-years after the father brought the pregnant 10-year-old to Graber, for the abortion.
Joanne Richter, executive director of the Broward County Sexual Assault Treatment Center stated to the press that Graber should have been aware of the possibility of sexual abuse and called authorities.

Graber never faced any charges for failing to report the sexual abuse of this child. Some believe that his connections as a Florida State House Representative at the time played a role in the decision to not prosecute.

Years later, when abortionist Benjamin Graber decided to close one of his Graber Gynecological Affiliates medical offices in Pompano Beach, Florida where he performed abortions, he sought out another doctor to sub-lease the office, because he was still under a lease contract with the owners.

Graber arranged to sublease the office to another abortionist by the name of Vladimar Rosenthal who owned the Today’s Women’s Medical Centers (abortion clinics) in South Florida.

Florida abortionist and Congressional Democrat hopeful Ben Graber removes fictitious poll numbers from website!

Graber says he’ll remove fictitious AP “poll” numbers for Dem congressional primary
by George Bennett | January 21st, 2010

According to reports, Democratic congressional hopeful ( and abortionist) Ben Graber, who faces state Sen. Ted Deutch in a special Feb. 2 primary for the former seat of former U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, says he’ll remove figures from his campaign Web site and Facebook page that suggest there’s an Associated Press “poll” that shows him getting 54 percent of the vote.

The AP says Graber came across purely fictitious numbers that AP sent to its newspaper, radio and TV clients this week as a pre-election test to make sure their computer systems are prepared to handle returns.

The AP sent out numbers — clearly labeling them “TEST returns” — showing Graber with a hefty lead over Deutch in the Democratic primary with half of congressional District 19 precincts reporting. There were also fake returns for the GOP primary that showed Ed Lynch ahead.

Graber said he came across the numbers while doing a Google search. He quickly began trumpeting them.

“AP Poll reveals Graber 54% vs Deutch 46% with 50% of the precincts polled,” Graber said on his Facebook page this week.

His campaign Web site also prominently posted the AP transmission.

“The numbers are fictional, they’re not for public use, they’re just to make sure everybody’s systems are working properly,” said AP Florida News Editor Terry Spencer. “They’re not a poll. They’re not any sort of prediction.”

Told of the AP’s explanation, Graber said he’ll remove the postings.

“We just share information like everybody else until it gets clarified,” Graber said.

Deutch’s campaign says he has already raised more than $800,000 for his special election bid to replace former Democratic Rep. Robert Wexler.

Deutch and Ben Graber are competing in a Feb. 2 Democratic primary. The winner runs in an April 13 general election.

AD Below: Vote for Ben Graber and he will make sure his pocket is padded with Tax Payer Dollars that will go to fund abortions – No personal profit motive here since Graber is an ABORTIONIST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is important to note that Ben Graber “claims” he supports women’s rights to abortion – but former abortion clinic owner Joyce Tarnow may differ with Graber on that. Graber bailed on Tarnow years ago – leaving her to hold the bag on a lawsuit: ( You may want to read Joyce Tarnow’s Views on Haiti later by clicking here)

This article from the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel explains the rift between Tarnow and Graber from years ago:

Clinic Owner Says Graber Not Paying His Share Of Fees
May 09, 1993|By Buddy Nevins
Is State Rep. Ben Graber putting money before women?

He is stiffing us. He is shafting us,“ said Joyce Tarnow, the owner of the Women`s Clinic in Oakland Park, where abortions are given.

It is revolutionary for Tarnow to throw darts at Graber, the pro-choice champion of the Broward legislative delegation and a physician who operates abortion clinics.

But that`s what happens when money is involved.

Graber`s clinic, Tarnow`s clinic and the Broward chapter of the National Organization for Women all were ordered to pay the attorney`s fees for the anti-abortion Moral Majority last month.

Broward Circuit Judge Arthur Birkin decided that the three had frivolously sued the Moral Majority and ordered them to fork over $22,138. If one doesn`t pay, the others must pick up the slack.

That`s where Graber comes in … or ducks out. He doesn`t want to pay and has attempted to shield himself through a corporation that is now defunct, according to Tarnow.

Graber, D-Coral Springs, did not return three calls for comment.

Here is a doctor who claims he is the friend of the pro-choice movement who is dumping on us. We can hardly afford to stay open, much less pay his share,“ Tarnow said.

Tarnow said the debt, which continues to increase as the Moral Majority attorney files motions to collect it, could drive her clinic out of business.

Broward NOW, which has an annual budget of about $12,000 , has already said it faces bankruptcy because of the award.
