Probe requested for Planned Parenthood CEO who authored buffer zone law as a state Rep.

MartyWalzTwo local legislators are asking Attorney General Martha Coakley to investigate Planned Parenthood’s hiring of former state Rep. Marty Walz as the organization’s CEO, alleging that it’s a violation of the conflict-of-interest law.

State Reps. Marc Lombardo and James Lyons wrote in a letter this week to Coakley that Walz was a leading sponsor of the abortion clinic “Buffer Zone Law,” and was then hired to a position directly related to that law.

“The question we are asking is simple. Is there a violation of the conflict-of-interest law when a legislator sponsors a law on behalf of an organization, then that same legislator is hired to a position in that organization that has paid $250,000 per year?” according to their letter to Coakley.

Lombardo, R-Billerica, and Lyons, R-Andover, sent the request to Coakley’s office on Thursday. Walz, a Democrat, was appointed Planned Parenthood’s CEO in early 2013, but the local legislators sent the letter now because of a recent Boston Globe article that mentioned Walz sponsoring a law for Planned Parenthood in 2007.

The abortion clinic buffer zone law “prohibits any type of demonstration for or against abortion within a 35-foot zone around driveways and entrances of abortion clinics,” according to the article. This month, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to the law.

In mid-February, Walz left the statehouse to become president and CEO of the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts.

Before 2007, a floating buffer zone kept protesters from approaching unwilling listeners any closer than 6 feet if they were within 18 feet of the clinic. The floating zone was modeled after the Colorado law that the Supreme Court upheld.

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley said the old law was confusing to both sides, and essentially unenforceable. “It was not as easy to effect the calm, orderly” entrance to the facility for patients, or their exit.

Walz said opponents can make their case to arriving patients. “It’s the last 7 seconds of your walk into the doorway,” she said, explaining that it takes her that long to walk from the perimeter to the entrance.

But the protesters said the new law limits their ability to be on a public sidewalk with a message that they have a right to express.

“The public sidewalk has effectively been made private property,” said Bill Cotter of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. “Unless I’m quick enough to make it around the perimeter of the buffer zone, I don’t have the opportunity to talk to people face to face or put a leaflet in their hand.”

“The reason I decided to leave the legislature is Planned Parenthood’s work,” Walz said. “I love the work that I have [in the legislature], but Planned Parenthood’s mission is so important to me personally, that I wanted to seize the opportunity in this leadership role.”

Former abortion giant Planned Parenthood lobbyist now politician in Wisconsin

Chris Taylor Wis State521427_558663210831225_1540212907_nFormer Public Policy Director for abortion giant Planned Parenthood now politician: Chris Taylor !

Being a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood was the best preparation,” she says. “I did the electoral strategy, so I knew elections and how to communicate with people on issues. I was the lead advocate at the state level for women’s reproductive health care, and these are some of the hardest issues to lobby on. That job taught me how to be persuasive and strategic.”

Taylor is proud of the agency’s success during her time there.

“When I started at Planned Parenthood, we had no shot at getting anything done because of the composition of the Legislature. I’ve learned you have to have proactive strategies because one day you’ll have a chance and you need to be ready,” she says.

Protecting public schools

Defense of public education and policies that benefit families are at the top of Taylor’s agenda.

“It is absolutely critical to have a strong public school system,” she says.

Currently she is enjoying rereading Harry Potter to her kids, whom she says help her keep perspective.

“Kids provide so much levity. Kids don’t care if you’re in the Legislature. You’re the mom and they want to play Legos.”

Some Democrats are already suggesting that Taylor could be going places. But would she run for governor or for national office? Taylor isn’t sure.

“I’m just getting started, and right now I am focused on representing my constituents. But you can never say never. Maybe it’s possible when my kids are a little older. Opportunities come up, and you can’t always predict what you’ll do.”
