Naturally, I'm as opposed to health care scandals as the next person, so I found the campaign enlightening. The advertisements also got me thinking about another nationwide healthcare provider that has been plagued by multiple government investigations, lawsuits, and scandals: Planned Parenthood.

Here's where it gets interesting. The anti-HMA campaign is sponsored by "the doctors, nurses and caregivers of the Service Employees International Union." The SEIU's health care division is operated by long-time labor organizer Kirk Adams. And Kirk Adams is married to none other than Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood.
In short, scandals at clinics are bad, and the executives who oversee them ought to take a pay cut-- unless it's your wife, making $340,000 a year at the nation's largest abortion chain.
