Republican New York Rep. Richard Hanna, who announced Tuesday he would be breaking ranks this November and voting for Hillary Clinton, has a lengthy history of siding against his party and standing with with one of Clinton’s staunchest allies — Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood donated thousands of dollars to Hanna’s campaigns in 2012 — when he was one of three Republicans in Congress to accept money from the organization — and in 2014, when he was the only Republican in Congress funded by Planned Parenthood.
Hanna, whose office has yet to return a request for comment, has consistently opposed Republican legislation that would regulate abortion — even in instances where public opinion supports such regulation — and has repeatedly fought against efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
