Today's Dispatches From The Stupid Party - Nothing To See Here

You may recall sputtering rage bomb Rep. Jason "Clouseau" Chaffetz (R-Zygote) who recently birthed a spectacular FAIL when he tried to bully and smear Planned Parenthood's President Cecile Richards at a House committee hearing September 29.  Well, what has his subsequent sleuthing turned up?
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that the GOP's investigation into Planned Parenthood's use of federal funds hasn't turned up anything.
"Did I look at the finances and have a hearing specifically as to the revenue portion and how they spend? Yes. Was there any wrongdoing? I didn't find any," he said during a Judiciary Committee hearing on the family planning provider.  (our emphasis)
Never fear, though!  Like the similarly bogus Benghazi!!! "hearings," there's money to be fleeced from the rubes and poll numbers to be driven down, so Republicans plan to go forward with their "investigation" of fetal tissue research programs (including Planned Parenthood's) and, of course, hold government hostage in their fruitless attempt to de-fund the popular women's health provider.
