Pro-life Congressman Cliff Stearns (R-FL) wrote in an op ed at over the weekend:

While working to defund this organization, as Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, I also plan to hold a hearing with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, testifying on why taxpayers should support Planned Parenthood.

I also want her to address what steps she has ordered to get this group to obey state and federal laws, which should be demanded of any beneficiary of federal funding.

That was good enough, but it gets way better. According to Politico on February 10:

On Thursday… Stearns demanded that… Sebelius explain the videos in which anti-abortion activists with the group Live Action pose as pimps and secretly record their conversations with workers at the family planning organization….

Stearns threatened to ask the Department of Justice to investigate Sebelius if she refuses to answer questions before the Energy and Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, which he heads.

“We’re going to bring Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius, put her under oath in the spring and ask her to explain what is she doing about these videos,” Stearns said Thursday, flanked by anti-abortion activists at a press conference on Capitol Hill, including the president of the group that recorded and released the videos.

“We’re not going to wait for Attorney General [Eric] Holder to do anything,” he added, as supporters clapped and cheered. “And if she lies, then we’re going to ask the attorney general to investigate her.”

Sebelius, whose agency oversees grants to PP… hasn’t yet testified in the GOP-dominated House.

Stearns said the Justice Department should investigate Sebelius if she lies under oath about PP’s activities.

This is luscious, no other word to describe it.

I hope Stearns’ grilling of Sebelius goes back to her attempts as governor of KS to thwart 107 criminal charges against  Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri for illegal late-term abortions.

Those charges are still pending, even as Sebelius’ corrupt cronies attempt to politically lynch former KS AG Phill Kline for trying to enforce KS law against PP.
