maybe he can give us a hint, is it a state house, or the federal house? if it is a state house, which state? or gee, since he knows what he is talking about, maybe he can find it and give us the text, or a link to it.

Um, this is the same district that indicted Tom DeLay too. It seems they can indict a ham sandwich if you want it done.
One of the indictments was for illegally buying baby parts which is what they were exposing PP for ... how could they have done so without PP being willing to sell the things which then indicates that PP was also engaged in said illegal activity?
The other indictment was for tampering with a government document. This was basically that they used fake IDs because PP has a list of people who are trying to expose them for illegal activity. There is a specific provision in the law that protects people using such things for the purpose of trying to investigate and uncover illegal activity.

Doesn't surprise me considering the GOP is always trying to impeach democratic presidents and launch criminal investigations. It's too bad they didn't have the same vigor to impeach and launch a criminal investigation against one of their own, George W.
Carly Fiorina benefited from company using aborted fetal stem cells:
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, a staunch opponent of abortion, made at least $83,000 serving on the board of directors of Merck & Co. at a time when the pharmaceutical company was producing vaccines using fetal stem cell lines derived from aborted fetuses, according to corporate documents reviewed by Al Jazeera America. The program “Inside Story” with Ray Suarez also obtained documents indicating that during Fiorina’s tenure on the board, anti-abortion groups had asked Merck to stop producing such vaccines, and that the company had refused.
The anti-abortion activists indicted by a Harris County grand jury on charges they faked government documents in a video sting aimed at Planned Parenthood will turn themselves in this week.
But first, Sandra Merritt will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. Wednesday in front of the Harris County Criminal Justice Center, 1201 Franklin.
David Daleiden, 27, will report to authorities on Thursday.
To: The Harris County Grand Jury and District Attorney Devon Anderson
I am appalled at the decision to turn a blind eye to clear video evidence showing Planned Parenthood harvesting the body parts of fully formed aborted babies and selling them for a profit.
Even worse is the decision to instead file charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who heroically pursued their investigation against Planned Parenthood using accepted methods of undercover investigative journalism.
I urge you to immediately drop these absurd charges against David and Sandra, and to instead refocus your efforts on where they belong: on the inhuman practices of Planned Parenthood in utilizing the bodies of the babies they have killed to make a profit.
An attorney for an anti-abortion activist said Thursday that his client does not plan to accept a proposed plea deal for charges related to making undercover Planned Parenthood videos.
Terry Yates, the attorney for David Daleiden, who faces a felony and a misdemeanor charge, said he is prepared to head to trial if he can't quash the indictment and isn't interested in a probation offer that would keep Daleiden out of prison.
Daleiden surrendered to authorities Thursday, posted $3,000 bond and made two court appearances. "I'm very grateful for all the support from the public," he said afterward.
Sandra Merritt, another activist also charged in connection with the videos, turned herself in Wednesday. Both were indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden also was indicted on a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs that carries up to a year in prison.
Attorneys say the pair plans to plead not guilty. Merritt was also offered probation in a settlement, but her attorneys have not indicated whether she'll take the offer.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney and other pro-life activists will give Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson "three weeks" to drop the charges against indicted pro-life activists before they take legal action against her.
"Our first step will be to file some ethics complaints," Mahoney said.
Anderson has a close relationship with Chip Lewis, the attorney for the largest late term abortion provider in the Houston area. Lewis donated over $25,000 to Anderson's campaign for district attorney, raising serious ethical concerns in the case.
If the charges are not dropped Mahoney says he and other pro-life leaders will go back to Houston in two months to "set up a mechanism" to have her replaced.
District Attorney Anderson is up for re-election this November. If she does not drop the charges against Daleiden and Merritt, Mahoney said he will work "to see that she is defeated in 2016."
Mahoney said this would not be the first time he has targeted legal authorities for actions he calls "unjust."
Mahoney led a campaign to replace Texas State District Court Judge Eileen O'Neill. She issued a restraining order in 1992 against pro-life activists at the request of Planned Parenthood. The injunction prohibited pro-life protesters from coming within 100 feet of an abortion clinic's doors and within 25 feet of anyone leaving or entering the clinic.
Judge O'Neill sentenced Mahoney to six months in prison for violating the injunction by praying outside of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Angered by her actions, Mahoney lead a campaign for Judge John Devine to defeat O'Neill in a 1994 election. His efforts were successful and Judge John Devine now sits on the Texas Supreme Court.
Mahoney warns that if Anderson continues to target Daleiden and Merritt, she will face the same opposition.
