A newly-released document shows Planned Parenthood’s New York-based 501(c)(3) non-profit giving $75,000 to the Planned Parenthood Votes Washington PAC in violation of federal law, according to the Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW).
A Planned Parenthood Votes Washington PAC public disclosure document indicates that Planned Parenthood in New York donated the money on September 2.
The abortion chain’s Washington state PAC has donated to Governor Jay Inslee, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, 10 candidates for the state legislature, and a candidate for State Auditor. According to the IRS and federal tax law, 501(c)(3) organizations may not contribute to candidate committees, political party committees, or political action committees (PACs).
“Planned Parenthood has to play by the same rules as everyone else,” FPIW President Joseph Backholm said. “Aside from violating the law with this donation, Planned Parenthood is now using taxpayer dollars to influence elections in Washington state. This should be a concern to anyone who cares about open and honest elections.”
“We were surprised to find this public record, dated September 2, 2016, which shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America in New York, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, giving $75,000 to Planned Parenthood Votes Washington PAC, a political action committee here in our state,” Zach Freeman, FPIW’s Communications Director, explained in a video the group released.
