Last night The Washington Times posted a hard-hitting expose by Rep Chris Smith, R-NJ, focusing on how Barack Obama helped enact Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Shari’a constitution. So did you; Obama lobbied for the new constitution with your money. Congressman Smith has noted this kind of advocacy is undoubtedly offensive and may be illegal. He writes that Obama, through the U.S. Agency for International Development:
committed more than $23 million. The list includes eight grants totaling nearly $450,000 explicitly to obtain a total of more than 100,000 “yes” votes in the referendum…
The USAID IG has not yet finished his investigation into these obvious violations of U.S. law. The report on these USAID-funded activities will be in addition to the report issued by the Department of State‘s inspector general tasked with investigating whether State Department employees participated in prohibited activities. Unfortunately, the State Department IG’s conclusion contradicted his own report indicating that U.S. officials urged Kenyans to vote in favor of the constitution…
Even if U.S. money was not used to draft and advocate specifically for the abortion provisions – and it is quite possible that it was – advocacy for the constitution overall is a violation of this restriction.

We can count on the Obama administration to produce an accurate report on this matter around the same time O.J. Simpson finds the real killer.
The facts will be left for Congressional Republicans to investigate next year, if they succeed in retaking one or both houses. They have a large and growing number of targets to investigate, from the administration’s using your money to support the Kenyan constitution, to offering a job to Joe Sestak, to using your money (notice a common thread?) for government-funded propaganda.
This kind of potentially illegal behavior on behalf of the culture of death demands a response. Let’s hope the GOP is not too timid to offer it.
