The Monroe County Democratic Party has picked Julie Thomas to be its candidate for county commissioner, now that incumbent commissioner Mark Stoops is running for the state senate. Democrats will now need to pick someone else to run for county council in the spot Thomas is vacating.
Here is something Monroe County voters need to seriously consider: Julie Thomas is on the board of directors for Planned Parenthood of Indiana. Planned Parenthood "clinics" in both Bloomington and Indianapolis were mired in a sex abuse scandal back in 2008, when a sting operation by Live Action Films caught PP employees on tape trying to cover up the sexual abuse of a 13 year old girl by a 31 year old man. Here are some past articles on that scandal.

Thomas' involvement with Planned Parenthood alone is reason enough to reject her bid to become county commissioner. This is an organization that is not only built on the bones of murdered babies, it helps cover up the felony abuse of children as a matter of policy - and both city and county government have happily funded this evil.
It is astonishing that we damn Joe Paterno (as he richly deserves) while we turn a blind eye to the evil of Planned Parenthood. We can fix that hypocrisy by rejecting Julie Thomas in November.
