She was not assigned to the investigation. The DA's Office told the press about it in a conference, back in August. Attached link is DA Anderson's response.

    Devon Anderson was appointed to the position of DA in 2013 by Governor Rick Perry to finish the term of her husband Mike, who died of cancer. She has since been elected to the post. She is an active member of the Republican party. So much for the 'left wing conspiracy' that some folk decided was underway here the moment the charges were filed.

    That's quite a coincidence....

    Planned Parenthood also offers services in women's healthcare, pap smears breast exams etc. In fact that and the other services they provide would be the bulk of their business, not abortions. Oh I forgot. Obama fixed the problem with women not having affordable healthcare when he pushed the AHA on the nation.

    I work for a Fortune 50 that does a lot of work with the government. "Audit" is considered normal business procedure. It's what real companies do.

    I don't give a crap about this, I never watched the videos, and I didn't read the stupid blog literature on the subject.

    However, what justifies any statement that "it was all made up?"

    The videos were apparently recorded in California. That's where Planned Parenthood participates in the fetal tissue program. The states that opened investigations do not have PP providers engaged in the fetal tissue program. That the government audited this to ensure regulatory compliance is normal for every other company and would be LAUDED by progressives were it any other company in any other industry.

    You know who isn't launching an investigation?

    California.

    So can any of the States that launched criminal investigations take civil action against the organisation or individuals responsible for laying the false complaints with a view to cost recovery? It was taxpayers dollars that were wasted after all.

    From the perspective of the Republican lawmakers and the Republican base, the behavior would still be classified as unethical.

    I haven't sat on any of the grand juries personally but as we can see from Black Lives Matter heroes, a failure to indict someone for violating my personal beliefs is 100% confirmation that the system is even more oppressive than we thought. (EDIT: obvious sarcasm)

    I'm going to guess that most or all of those were 'Red' states. Oh dear!
