Will this put the Planned Parenthood witch hunt to rest?

Will this put the Planned Parenthood witch hunt to rest?

Hell, no. There’s a presidential campaign to run, after all, and Carly Fiorina certainly won’t let this get in her way.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that the GOP’s investigation into Planned Parenthood’s use of federal funds hasn’t turned up anything.

“Did I look at the finances and have a hearing specifically as to the revenue portion and how they spend? Yes. Was there any wrongdoing? I didn’t find any,” he said during a Judiciary Committee hearing on the family planning provider.

Chaffetz, a candidate for House speaker, grilled Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during a five-hour hearing last week. He questioned her salary, asked about the organization’s expenses and revenues, and pressed Richards on why the group had revenue of $127 million last year if it’s a nonprofit. (Nonprofits put their revenues back into their programs.)

But after all that, he concluded that¬†Planned Parenthood isn’t doing anything sketchy with its money.¬†“Did we find any wrongdoing? The answer was no,” Chaffetz said.
