GOP primary opponents Moran & Tiahrt

Congressman Jerry Moran’s U.S. Senate campaign is conducting a cover up about his voting record as a Kansas Senator and then unwisely has attacked opponent Todd Tiahrt’s campaign for running an ad that tells the truth.   The ad reveals:

“inexcusably, Congressman Moran objected to parents’ rights, and responsibilities… when he voted against parental notification.  Not once, but twice.”

Kansans for Life Executive Director, Mary Kay Culp, released a media statement Monday night on behalf of the KFL -PAC (Political Action Committee) based on documentation that shows Moran did vote against parental consent in 1989, and against parental notification in 1990 and 1991. At the time of these votes, Moran expressed NO pro-life concerns– in fact, Moran officially joined the written explanations of pro-abortion Kansas Senators in 1990!

It seems that the many failed political cover-up lessons have not been learned by Moran’s camp. Kansans want the truth, not newly-concocted defenses that don’t hold water… to wit, that he voted FOR his Catholic constituents by voting AGAINST the parental bills supported by the Kansas Catholic Conference, as well as KFL, Concerned Women for America and others. What we see is that:

  1. as a Senator for the more liberal Hays district, Moran voted with the abortion industry;
  2. then, as a Congressman for the pro-life First District, he voted pro-life;
  3. now that he is running to represent the entire state, which includes several abortion strongholds, will he vote pro-life?

A recent fundraiser for Moran by pro-abortion Republicans, shows they have decided who the weaker pro-life candidate is.  This is problematic, when combined with Moran’s flawed excuse. (see press release for more details)

Today, it was raw ambition and chutzpah –not Courage– that surfaced during the nearly successful Senate veto override for pro-life bill, HB 2115.

The veto failed by the one vote of Wichita Republican  Jean Schodorf, right after staging a publicity stunt on the Senate floor by announcing she was emailing an invite to  KFL and Planned Parenthood to join her in creating a “compromise” bill.

What hypocrisy—there is no conflict needing re-hashing!  Schodorf ALREADY VOTED FOR the exact provisions of HB 2115 when they were part of the 2008 Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act.  See details (more…)
