22: "I know all of these FOCUS guys pretty well, usually as political opponents, from time to time as allies. (I’m pretty sure Robinson, working on behalf of Tim Johnson, was chiefly responsible for Johnson’s 67%-33% squeeker over me in 1990). Whether or not you agree with them, give them credit for being smart and honest. Robinson has conducted scientific surveys in South Daktoa and across the nation for years."
I would like to thank Don Frankenfeld for providing me with more insight on what is going on with this abortion issue. And it is Tom Daschle. Frankenfeld spoke on those "Republicans for Daschle" commercials in 2004. Focus South Dakota also ran pro-Daschle commercials in 2004. Steve Hildebrand, Daschle’s campaign manager, started the so-called Common Sense South Dakota in response to the South Dakota ban on abortion. And now we have Frankenfeld defending the Focus South Dakota campaign to con South Dakota on the abortion ban.
At this point I would like to point out a side note that Tom Daschle was afraid to call himself pro-choice in 2004. Tom Daschle did not want the people of South Dakota to know the truth back in 2004 and his organization doesn’t want the people of South Dakota to know the truth today. Tom Daschle is pro-abortion.
I already been chewed out today by Bill Harlan for using too much content from other sources to support my position (see comment 2). So I will only provide this link to today’s KELO-TV coverage of the Focus South Dakota pro-abortion propaganda campaign. It is truly a work of media bias. I am sure the far-left commenters on this blog will enjoy it.
Joe Kafk also provided an AP report on this Daschle Democrat campaign. I will risk violating Bill Harlan’s rules with this excerpt:
However, Leslee Unruh, a state leader in the battle against abortion, said she doesn't believe the poll was done properly. She also said Focus: South Dakota is suspect because it gets much of its money from national abortion-rights groups.
Unruh said the South Dakota political group collected $20,000 from Planned Parenthood during the 2004 election cycle and $5,000 from the National Abortion Rights and Action League.
Unruh also said 99 percent of abortions are done for reasons other than rape and incest, and the poll takers insinuated that the proposed South Dakota law does not provide any exceptions in those instances. The measure allows for emergency contraception, she said.
If the abortion bill is put on the fall ballot, voters would approve it, Unruh said. She said abortion foes will conduct a "campaign sweep across South Dakota like you've never seen."
A statewide effort to promote the legislation will begin April 2, she said.
"It's important that people get the right information so they can make the right decisions, and I believe that most South Dakotans want to protect women and babies," Unruh said. "South Dakota citizens do not support abortion as a means of birth control."
I hope the RCJ will again point out the Daschle fundraisers for both Planned Parenthood and NARAL as they report on this Focus South Dakota poll and their connection to Daschle. This will complete the connect the dots truth that Tom Daschle is behind the undoing of South Dakota’s ban on abortion. This entire crusade against HB1215 is a national effort funded and promoted by the Daschle Democrats.
