Amy Allen/Obiter dictum said ILGOP rep Matthew Leffingwell was flat out wrong when he told The Hill that GOP state Sen. Carole Pankau is positioning herself as pro-abortion in contrast to state Sen. Peter Roskam for a potential primary competition to replace retiring Congressman Henry Hyde.
So I asked them.
Leffingwell said the quote was a mistake. Pankau told me she is and always has been pro-life with the rape/incest/life exceptions and reminded me she has always voted pro-life, which I knew. I asked her if she has a health exception. She said NO.
Ok, Amy!
