Fiorina ‘Foundation’ Run By Group That Gave Almost Half A Million Dollars To Planned Parenthood
But it depends on what the meaning of “foundation is” to paraphrase someone who was once president. What is not in doubt, however, is that the entity gave money to help women get abortions.
Carly Fiorina is so opposed to Planned Parenthood, which she believes is “pushing women into late-term abortions so they can more successfully harvest body parts,” that she would shut the government down in order to prevent it from receiving any federal funding. But she doesn’t oppose Planned Parenthood enough, it seems, to care if the organization that controls the Fiorina Foundation, her mysterious charity outfit, also distributes funds to the group—nearly half a million dollars since 2011…
The Fiorina Foundation was not registered with the secretary of state in California or the county clerk in Santa Cruz, where Fiorina resided at the time. It wasn’t registered with the IRS, either. Meaning that, were it really a foundation, it would be violating the law, which demands that private foundations file annual 990 forms.
In response to a report, by the San Francisco Chronicle, revealing Fiorina’s apparent lack of compliance, she said she was in fact under no obligation to register the Fiorina Foundation, because what she called her foundation was not a private foundation at all…
This is not the only time Fiorina has found herself connected to a charity whose activities would seem to compromise her pro-life beliefs.
In 2013, Good360, of which Fiorina served as the chair from 2012 to 2015, donated $18,022 to the Abortion Access Network of Arizona, part of the National Network of Abortion Funds, according to Buzzfeed. The group, “provides financial assistance to people seeking abortions in the state of Arizona.”
