Right Wing Leftovers

  • CQ: Chip Pickering’s otherwise dormant CHIP PAC made a donation of $5,000 to Haley Barbour’s PAC on Aug. 15 — four days after Barbour’s PAC gave $5,000 to David Vitter’s 2010 re-election campaign. The two checks comprise all of the month’s activities for Haley’s PAC, Is it just a coincidence?
  • Speaking of PACs, Gov. Tim Pawlenty has formed one.
  • Bill Cosby was the featured guest at the Independent Women’s Forum’ “About Our Children” event, which was itself a collaboration with MSNBC.
  • Is the Right still complaining about this nonsense?  Apparently.
  • 40 Days of Life: Starting tomorrow, and continuing through November 1, tens of thousands of faithful people in 212 cities — across 45 American states, five Canadian provinces, and Denmark — will conduct a unified 40-day campaign of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, peaceful vigils outside abortion facilities and Planned Parenthood offices, and grassroots community organizing.”
  • Finally, from the Topeka Capital-Journal: Former Attorney General Phill Kline and former senior deputy attorney general Eric Rucker will receive ethics complaints no later than 45 days from Tuesday, Ron Keefover, spokesman for the Kansas Supreme Court said Tuesday. On Monday, former assistant attorney general Stephen D. Maxwell was issued a formal complaint alleging nine violations of the Kansas Rules of Professional Conduct, all tied to Kline’s investigations of two abortion providers.
