Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius received three times as much money from late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller than she previously acknowledged

If I were to inadvertently shake Tiller’s hand, I would immediately repair to the bathroom for a cleansing. I can’t imagine what kind of person would take tens of thousands of dollars from him, year after year, as well as throw parties for him in the Governor’s Mansion. Gives me the creeps just thinking about it.

NEW YORK (Catholic League) - The Associated Press reports that in documents it recently reviewed, President Obama's choice to head the department of health and human services, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, received three times as much money from late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller than she previously acknowledged.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue weighed in on this issue today:

"The name Dr. George Tiller is synonymous with death. By his own admission, he has performed over 60,000 abortions. His specialty is killing babies in utero who are nearly born, or are already partially born. He is a master at that.

"This is the same guy who lavished Kathleen Sebelius with cash when she ran for office in Kansas: he knew what he was buying--a public official he knew wouldn't betray him. Now we know how really generous he was.

"Sebelius testified that she received $12,450 from Tiller between 1994-2001. Here is what AP is reporting today: 'What Sebelius left out: Campaign finance documents show that Tiller also contributed $10,000 to Sebelius' Bluestem Fund PAC in September 2000, and his clinic, Women's Health Care Services, contributed $8,000 to the PAC in December 2001 and another $5,000 in March 2002.'

"The real problem is not Sebelius' habitual underreporting (she also had to pay more than $7,000 in back taxes): the real problem is the source of her PAC money. Tiller has to kill kids -- he admits to killing 100 per week -- in order to get the dough he needs to grease Sebelius. No wonder the last three archbishops of Kansas have publicly criticized her.

"If I were to inadvertently shake Tiller's hand, I would immediately repair to the bathroom for a cleansing. I can't imagine what kind of person would take tens of thousands of dollars from him, year after year, as well as throw parties for him in the Governor's Mansion. Gives me the creeps just thinking about it."
