Former Portland City Council candidate and soon-to-be ex Rep. Mary Nolan is a candidate for the top job at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette.

The nonprofit confirmed to WW this afternoon that Nolan, who lost a bid to unseat incumbent City Commissioner Amanda Fritz in November, is a candidate for the CEO position. She would replace David Greenberg, who left his $196,000 a-year-post earlier this year following contentious contract negotiations with the Service Employees International Union.

According to a 2010, report,

David Greenberg, the Former CEO Earned $196,000-a-year

Stephen Reichard earns $107,411 as the Chief Operating Officer

Lenice Shaw earns $97,754 as Chief Financial Officer

Adrienne Karecki Fomer Chief Operating Officer took home $116,829

Dean Roberts , Former CFO, took home $84,972 , Nadikerianda Ponnamma $75,765, Judith Albert $93,107, Cathryn Wilcox $90,309, Lynn Hayden $75,292, Linda Bryant $91,947, Marcella Forbes took home $63,895

Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009– that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!!

In addition, according to Planned Parenthood’s “Services” fact sheet, its clinics performed 329,445 abortions in 2010.

Cecile Richards; Planned Parenthood President

Planned Parenthood then took those hard earned dollars away from poor and middle class hard working people and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here )

The $385,163 in pay Planned Parenthood President Richards received in the organization’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2008 was recorded in the group’s publicly available Internal Revenue Service Form 990 filed for that year.

Richards also received $346,285 in total compensation from Planned Parenthood and $38,476 in total compensation from related groups in the organization’s fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2009, according to the organization’s Form 990 for that year. In a 2010 PPFA 990, Cecile Richards reported earning $319,245 from PPFA and $35,471 from related PP organizations

Planned Parenthood’s Form 990 filed with the Internal Revenue Service for tax year July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011, shows the Cecile Richards’ salary, benefits and compensation totaled $420,153.

What you may not know is how much money , in a time of economic depression, Cecile Richards and her crew at Planned Parenthood are making, paid for by hard working American Tax Payers like me and you. View Here

Former Planned Parenthood Staff

In 2008, a former employee and abortionist for Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette in Oregon by the name of Dr. GEORGE ELLIOTT KABACY, M.D., was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison for possession of child pornography. He was not practicing at the Planned Parenthood at the time of his arrest.

Dr. George Elliott Kabacy was actively practicing as an OBGYN in Washington State at the time of his arrest in December 2006.

At the sentencing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Vince Lombardi said Kabacy “traded pictures of children being subjected to rape and degradation.”

Kabacy admitted in his plea agreement that he knowingly possessed more than 8,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Kabacy also admits to possessing videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, both on his computer and on 36 compact disks. Some of the images depict children under the age of 12, authorities said.

Kabacy admitted that he communicated with other people over the Internet, expressing his interest in having sex with minors and exchanging more than 40 images of child pornography with those other people over the Internet.

He first came to the attention of the FBI after the arrest of an Atlanta man who indicated he had communicated with Kabacy.

The man alleged that Kabacy had sent him a computer in exchange for the man’s promise that he would send Kabacy pornographic pictures of his grandchildren.

Kabacy moved to Washington state and worked until his arrest at Sound Choice Health Center in Olympia.He ceased practicing when he was indicted .

Republican fundraiser finalist for CEO of Planned Parenthood

Posted in Planned Parenthood and Republicans, Planned Parenthood Employee with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2012 by saynsumthn

UPDATE: The board of Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette met Tuesday night with the expectation of naming a new CEO, but instead it unanimously agreed to re-start the search process.

“The board voted to continue the search,” says Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Liz Delapoer. “We are hoping to have someone in place by early next year.”

In the meantime, interim CEO Sarah Newhall will continue to run the non-profit, which has an annual budget of $20 million and employs more than 200 people.

As reported earlier, some longtime supporters of the organization were agitated by the news that one of the two finalists for the position was Judy Peppler, who until 2011 served as CEO of Qwest Oregon and whose support of GOP candidates that Planned Parenthood Advocates had opposed became a flashpoint.

Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette has been searching for a new CEO for several months, ever since conflict over a new contract with the Service Employees International Union led to the departure of former CEO David Greenberg from his $196,000-a-year post.

The search is down to two finalists—one controversial candidate is an internal candidate from a Planned Parenthood chapter in Florida, —Judy Peppler.

Peppler left her recent position with CenturyLink bought Qwest in 2011; she enrolled in the Broad Academy, a program started by California billionaire Eli Broad that prepares corporate leaders for positions in public education. After finishing the academy, Peppler became the chief transformation officer in the Wake County, N.C., school district, which serves nearly 150,000 students, about three times the number in Portland Public Schools.

Peppler left that job in October, according to news reports, after the school board fired the superintendent who’d hired her 13 months earlier.

Peppler was a registered Republican. She was also a fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate John McCain in 2008 and Oregon GOP gubernatorial candidate Chris Dudley in 2010.

That past, and in particular an incident during the Dudley campaign, has some local Planned Parenthood supporters questioning whether she’s the right person for the job.

Former legislator Jane Cease, is one of those skeptics. Cease says she took issue with remarks Peppler made at a 2010 luncheon at the Portland Art Museum given for Portland State University’s Center for Women Politics and Policy.

Because the lunch had more than 600 attendees, Planned Parenthood Advocates demonstrated outside the Art Museum, blasting Dudley for being “faux-choice.”

Cease says Peppler took issue with those protestors at the luncheon, stating that “she wished the people weren’t outside picketing Chris Dudley because he was actually pro-choice,” Cease tells WW. “Many of us were booing and hissing because we knew he was on record the other way.”

Cease says she’s been a Planned Parenthood supporter for 40 years and along with many of her fellow supporters is distressed that Peppler could become the group’s new CEO.

“There’s a lot of rumbling about that because she was supporting McCain and Dudley [both of whom Planned Parenthood advocates has attacked for not being pro-choice],” Cease says.

“I think it would be really ill-advised to have somebody who is not solidly pro-choice running the organization.”

Peppler, 49, says such concerns are unfounded.

“I would not have applied for the job if I were not strongly pro-choice,” she says.

SEIU halts Planned Parenthood $250.00 a plate fundraiser with picket threat

H/T WW

Revelers—including Gov. John Kitzhaber—planned to whoop it up at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette’s Roman Holiday gala on Saturday, May 12, but they face a tough political decision: Support the organization’s annual $250-per-plate blowout, or honor the picket line that Service Employees International Union Local 49 plans to stage. SEIU represents 179 Planned Parenthood clinical workers; the sides have been “unable to reach an agreement on an initial contract despite negotiating since November 2011, says SEIU’s Felisa Hagins. Planned Parenthood CEO David Greenberg says he has not decided how to respond to the picket. Kitzhaber has. Says his spokesman, Tim Raphael, “The governor will not cross the picket line and has canceled his appearance.”

According to the Daily Caller:
Facing SEIU picket, Planned Parenthood cancels fundraiser
Published: 12:15 AM 05/11/2012

BURBANK, CA –
It seems that the Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette (PPCW) in Portland, Ore. and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are in the midst of a little labor spat — but then nothing is little when it comes to either of these groups.

Last August, employees at the PPCW voted in favor of unionizing with the SEIU Local 49 in a National Labor Relations Board Election. The pair have been trying to work out a contract since November to no avail.

Due to frustrations with the slow contract process, the SEIU made plans to picket PPCW’s annual fundraising dinner scheduled for May 12 — a move that reportedly caused Oregon Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber to cancel his plans to attend the event, the Willamette Weekly reported.

“The governor will not cross the picket line and has canceled his appearance,” Kitzhaber spokesman Tim Raphael told Willamette Weekly.
The pressure caused PPCW to cancel the entire $250-per-plate event on Wednesday.

“It is with great disappointment that I write to let you know that we have decided to cancel our upcoming Spring Gala next Saturday, May 12,” David Greenberg, president and CEO of PPCW wrote in an email to supporters, obtained by Willamette Weekly.

“The decision by SEIU to picket our event has put many of our supporters into the untenable position of having to choose between two organizations, and two progressive causes, both of which they support,” Greenberg wrote, explaining that the organization wishes to respect their supporters’ allegiances to both groups.
The SEIU also rallied in front of a PPCW conference in late March.

“We’re here today because we’ve been bargaining since November 1, 2011,” explained Skye Frome, a registered nurse, at the time. ”And while we’ve made some progress, we have yet to see our most serious concerns addressed in any meaningful way. We’re here to show management that we’re serious about reaching a fair contract.”

In an ironic twist, the SEIU’s international executive vice president, Kirk Adams, is married to Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Neither group responded to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

OLYMPIA OB-GYN SENTENCED TO 6 + YEARS IN PRISON FOR POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

Doctor Tracked by Law Enforcement After Exchanging Child Porn with Atlanta Man

GEORGE ELLIOTT KABACY, M.D., 69, of Lacey, Washington, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Tacoma to 78 months (6.5 years) in prison, ten years of supervised release, and a $10,000 fine for Possession of Child Pornography. KABACY, a gynecologist in Olympia, was actively practicing at the time of his arrest in December 2006. KABACY will be required to register as a sex offender when he is released from prison.

KABACY pleaded guilty in November 2007, admitting in his plea agreement that he knowingly possessed more than 8,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. KABACY also admits to possessing videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, both on his computer and on 36 compact disks. Some of the images depict children under the age of 12. KABACY admitted that he communicated with other people over the Internet, expressing his interest in having sex with minors and exchanging more than 40 images of child pornography with these other people over the Internet. KABACY first came to the attention of the FBI after the arrest of an Atlanta, Georgia man who indicated he had communicated with KABACY. In fact the man alleged that KABACY had sent him a computer in exchange for the man’s promise that he would send KABACY pornographic pictures of his grandchildren. The Atlanta man claimed he had never sent those pictures.

On December 19, 2006, FBI agents searched KABACY’s Lacey home and arrested him. KABACY was detained until December 21, 2006, when he was released on electric home monitoring and ordered to immediately cease practicing as a physician. KABACY has been incarcerated since January 2008 for violating terms of his pretrial release
In court today Assistant United States Attorney Vince Lombardi stated that KABACY traded images of child porn the way other people trade baseball cards. Lombardi said KABACY “traded pictures of children being subjected to rape and degradation,” and he noted that the amount of child pornography was one of the largest collections prosecuted in the Western District of Washington. “It’s the product of work, lots and lots of work, to collect that much and burn it onto CDs,” Lombardi said.

U.S. District Judge Franklin D. Burgess said he “found this case troubling in a lot of ways.” Judge Burgess said it was clear KABACY’s involvement in child pornography had gone on for some time. Judge Burgess said, “a person serving in his capacity (as a doctor) is expected to act at a higher level… Sometimes, one bad thing can outweigh a lot of good things someone does.”

The case was investigated by the FBI and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Vince Lombardi.

This case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood. In February 2006, the Department of Justice launched Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims.
