Dozens of Republican Senators are demanding a new investigation into Planned Parenthood after the abortion giant fraudulently applied for and received taxpayer funds through the Paycheck Protection Program. 

 

"The Paycheck Protection Program established by the CARES Act was designed by Congress to help struggling small businesses and nonprofit organizations by giving them access to low-cost loans for expenses like keeping their employees on payroll during this pandemic. It was not designed to give government funds to politicized, partisan abortion providers like Planned Parenthood," a letter signed by 27 Senators and sent to Attorney General Bill Barr states. 

"The funds in the program are not unlimited, and were depleted once already because of high demand. Planned Parenthood fraudulently taking tens of millions of dollars that were intended to help keep those small businesses and nonprofit organizations afloat cannot stand and must be addressed," the letter continued. 

The letter was signed Senators Cruz, Cotton, Blackburn, Loeffler, Scott, Lee, Sasse, Boozman, Thune, Braun, Young, Cassidy, Inhofe, Cornyn, Daines, Enzi, Joni Ernst, Graham, Hyde-Smith, Kennedy, Lankford, Perdue, Risch, Romney, Rounds and Tim Scott. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also signed on. :snip:

Rubio demands probe of Planned Parenthood's coronavirus stimulus loans

Sen. Marco Rubio, chairman of the committee that oversees the Small Business Administration, demanded an investigation Friday into how Planned Parenthood affiliates were able to access coronavirus stimulus loans that the government now says they clearly didn’t qualify for.

Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican, was joined by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and more than 100 other members of Congress in telling the SBA that canceling the loans — which he said the agency has already agreed to do — isn’t enough.

“These circumstances require a full investigation in order to determine whether there was wrongdoing, and we urge that any such misconduct be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” the lawmakers wrote to SBA chief Jovita Carranza.:snip:
