H/T- Jill Stanek
Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s founder and CEO is stepping down.
Nancy Brinker is joined on her fall on the sword by her president and two board members, all denying the Planned Parenthood debacle had anything to do with it.
It didn’t have to be this way. They could have stood strong in their decision to defund theUnited States’ largest abortion provider, but they couldn’t handle the heat.
Since then no one has been happy. WhileMSM consistently portrays Komen’s loss of revenue as a show of displeasure by abortion proponents, it is just as likely disappointed and previously unaware pro-lifers are now withholding donations.
Jill Stanek states, “I don’t feel one ounce of sympathy for Brinker. She, as a friend of Planned Parenthood, got Komen into its mess. In 1996 Planned Parenthood of North Texas gave her the Gertrude Shelburne Humanitarian Award, and as recently as 2011 Komen sat on that affiliate’s advisory council. (MSM never mentions this part of Brinker’s bio, because it doesn’t fit their portrayal of Brinker as a Republican hack.)”
Brinker learned too late Planned Parenthood is as friendly as a scorpion, and her beloved organization paid dearly for her miscalculation. Ultimately, so did she.
Meanwhile, a Washington Post op ed on Brinker’s demise, “Nancy Brinker’s Komen shakeup too little and way too late,” had nary a contrary word to say about Planned Parenthood or its CEO while noting:
Brinker’s own reputation was on the line as her $417,000 salary and the top executive’s first-class air travel became part of the debate about whether the organization had strayed from its mission.
Jill Stanek is correct to point out the contradiction because as Saynsumthn has been tracking– Planned Parenthood which cried and whined they “needed” Komen funds so badly- pays many of their execs 6 digit salaries. Given that Planned Parenthood brags over 800 Locations that is potentially 800 Planned Parenthood directors and staff making 6 digit pay at the expense of Tax Payers.
As Stanek points out: a Washington Post op ed on Brinker’s demise, “Nancy Brinker’s Komen shakeup too little and way too late,” had nary a contrary word to say about Planned Parenthood or its CEO while noting: Brinker’s own reputation was on the line as her $417,000 salary and the top executive’s first-class air travel became part of the debate about whether the organization had strayed from its mission.
The link goes back to a February 2012 WashPo hit piece on Brinker, noting also that Komen “paid 50 top executive more than $100,000 each” in 2010.
Well…here is what Saynsumthn has been documenting:

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. Why should the taxpayer be forced to fund abortion?
Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?
But, Planned Parenthood’s profits are politicians gains. Just look at this analysis from Open Secrets which monitors 501C3 organizations and how they distribute and collect their funding:
The organization’s political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats –– during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.
Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle — money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements. The top beneficiaries of this money were Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
In 2010 alone, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period.
So, not only does taxpayer money make Planned Parenthood officials RICH FAT CATS, they also expand the coffers of the politicians who support them- see how the cycle works?
Planned Parenthood also PROFITED $64 million dollars in that same year ! Why do they need you and I to fund them?
