Planned Parenthood loses $$$$$$$ trying to defeat him.
…in a post-Obama party that demands 100-percent extremism on abortion, he’s been left to fend for himself — usually in battles against his own bosses. So far, that’s worked out just fine for Lipinski, who hasn’t budged from his belief that you can be a Democrat and still support the dignity of the unborn.
And while the national party may have abandoned him, voters haven’t. By a 51-49 margin, they lined up to put Lipinski one step closer to an eighth term. That is, if his opponent, businesswoman Marie Newman, ever comes to grips with it. Last night, the darling of Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the Human Rights Campaign pettily told reporters that she would not concede. “I would like to make Mr. Lipinski have a very painful evening,” she said bitterly, “so we’re going to wait.” Well, she can’t wait all she wants, but the message from Illinois is clear: Americans want leaders who share their cautious approach to abortion.
