Officials Raid Home Of Activist Behind Planned Parenthood ‘Sting’ Videos


California Department of Justice agents have raided the home of David Daleiden, the anti-abortion activist who targeted women’s healthcare group Planned Parenthood with a series of undercover videos, his attorney said on Wednesday.

Eleven agents seized four computers and hundreds of hours of video footage from Daleiden’s apartment in Huntington Beach on Tuesday, said Charles LiMandri, a civil attorney for Daleiden in three cases in California.


Things just keep getting worse for anti-abortion activist/propaganda peddler David Daleiden. The California DOJ just raided his home and seized all his computers and videos.

I gotta say, when this story was first breaking and all the irrational crazies were jumping on the bandwagon to support this fraud including Republican Senators (who seemed prepoised to speak on this before the videos actually dropped), I wasn't hopeful that he would come to justice for defaming the Planned Parenthood organization. Well PP has fought back hard against this smear campaign and it is paying off. David is under criminal investigation in Texas and now California is straight up seizing his stuff.

What's funny is that he probably started this whole adventure thinking that things would turn out like all the other times fake activists tried to trick PP into being filmed doing illegal things and then nothing comes of any of it, but what David did here was different. He made a claim that wasn't even close to true and there are serious circumstances for when you publicly lie about an organization. Plus the admitted breaking of laws to even obtain the footage to begin with.

It's good to see justice in action for once.


I wonder what these republican senators will say if he gets convicted for fraud and other crimes. I bet they will drop him like a hot potato.

They probably already have. They got their usefulness out of him. Just support the controversy while it was hot, that way you look tough on abortion for your reelection chances. Meanwhile, the issue fades from the news and no one speaks on what ultimately ends up happening. Politics 101 right there.

This is obviously a liberal State trying to silence the truth ...

(I just thought I'd get a jump on the absurdists that will soon descend, for once ... LOL)

Good thread Krazy. I'd love to see all the dirty facts of these extremists come to light.

Something I'm a little unclear on here. Why did the CA DOJ raid his apartment? If this is about slander, libel, or defamation, those are civil matters. It wouldn't be the job of the state police to collect evidence for a civil suit. If it was about some CA law involving surreptitious recordings, then the CA DOJ would have to raid nearly every investigative news organization in the state, every law enforcement agency in the state, and whatever organizations hold the video for red light cameras.

Exactly what is this man being charged with?

Great news, now the sad fact is people are still going to attack PP and some states will still defund them.

It's politics !!!!

It's a ruse !!!!

Big money !!!!


California Attorney General Kamala Harris is facing conflict-of-interest accusations after launching a raid on pro-life activist David Daleiden’s apartment even as she campaigns for the U.S. Senate on a pro-Planned Parenthood platform.

Ms. Harris, a longtime Planned Parenthood supporter seeking the Democratic Senate nomination, includes on her campaign website a petition asking voters to “take a stand and join Kamala in defending Planned Parenthood.”

“It is no secret that Harris is in bed with Planned Parenthood,” Mr. O’Keefe said. “Her 2014 AG campaign received donations from multiple Planned Parenthood PACs and her 2016 U.S. Senate race has already received personal donations from senior Planned Parenthood players.”

Having reviewed the records or transcripts in full and in context, I find that no NAF attendee admitted to engaging in, agreed to engage in, or expressed interest in engaging in potentially illegal sale of fetal tissue for profit. The recordings tend to show an express rejection of Daleiden’s and his associates’ proposals or, at most, discussions of interest in being paid to recoup the costs incurred by clinics to facilitate collection of fetal tissue for scientific research, which NAF argues is legal.

the wheels of justice may turn slowly, but they do tend to turn....




alifornia Law Penal Code § 632, enacted under the California Invasion of Privacy Act, makes it illegal for an individual to monitor or record a "confidential communication" whether the communication is carried on among the parties in the presence of one another or by means of a telegraph, telephone, or other device. California is known as a "two-party" state, which means that recordings are not allowed unless all parties to the conversation consent to the recording.

Under Penal Code § 632(c), "confidential communication" includes any communication carried on in circumstances as may reasonably indicate that any party to the communication desires it to be confined to the parties, but excludes a communication made in a public gathering or in any legislative, judicial, executive or administrative proceeding open to the public, or in any other circumstance in which the parties to the communication may reasonably expect that the communication may be overheard or recorded.

A violation of Penal Code § 632 can lead to a fine of up to $2,500 and/or imprisonment for up to a year (misdemeanor). In addition, the violator may be subject to civil liability in the amount of $5,000 or three times the amount of any actual damages sustained as a result.

I'm not sure how many conversations were taped in california, but well I believe there is three parties who filed lawsiuts, with at least one filed under Rico..... my bet is that these guys might not be able to pay all the fines and damages involved if the courts don't go there way, even if the liquidate everything they own.... wonder if they are hoping for a republican win, so they can get a presidential pardon..

but then, bush was even called a liberal when he refused to wander as far out in right field as the conservative right..
so, well... all I am going to say, is that is the same thing they said about the lawmakers in washington back in the early 2000's when another group pulled much the same gimmick which resulted in a bunch of investigations also... because the lawmakers came back and said there was nothing to indicate any illegality, well, that's all you hears, the lawmakers were in the pockets of planned parenthood!! get real!!!!

and no, journalism, investigative or not, does not give one permission to create fake legal documents, break confidentiality agreements, ect.

One wonders ... who is "slamming" the Attorney General, exactly? (From the source at the ultra-right Moonie Times)




The reaction from Mr. Daleiden’s corner was swift, with one of his attorneys describing the raid as “an oppressive abuse of government power.” “To storm into a private citizen’s home with a search warrant is outrageously out of proportion for the type of crime alleged. It’s a discredit to law enforcement, an oppressive abuse of government power,” Matt Heffron, a former federal prosecutor in Phoenix and now a legal adviser to Mr. Daleiden, said in a Wednesday statement.


WHo would imagine that a guy who tried to fraudulently purchase human baby parts would have a problem with the acts of law enforcement bringing him to justice, eh?

Irony!

Manufactured outrage!

Right Wing Mainstream Media Dreck!

how many stories have been posted on these forums about the cops making a mistake, storming the wrong house, burning babies with flash granades, and on and on...
how much you want to bet that not one flash granade was used thrown into his house??

gee, the lawyer has nothing to complain about! if he was a good lawyer, he would have advised his client to get rid of any incriminating evidence a long time ago, heck the law enforcement gave them plenty of time.

Adherents of right-wing extremism as well as the media sources that support their echo-chamber, are very rarely concerned with actual facts, much less the reasonable implications of their activities. All in the name of Belief.

We don't know yet. The CA DOJ refused to comment on an ongoing investigation.

I find it hard not to simply comment "SSDD."

So, suffice it to say that your observations are well-taken.

Exposing something the left defends. This is all political and is only happening because this is an election year.

Interesting opinion ... and yet you have zero evidence for that position, as opposed to the mounds of RECORDED evidence of David Daleiden's guilt on the charges being brought in SEVERAL STATES (including Texas) against him.

Exposing something...
So you claim that the truth is "political manipulation", even though you know it's the truth?
So, presumably you opinion is that truth should be damned when it gets in the way of your politics?

Nice cop-out. Try not to push any ear wax in to your inner ear from shoving your fingers in your ears so much.
