Texas served David Daleiden some well-deserved karma this past Monday.
You may remember that Daleiden, the 27 year-old Director of the Center for Medical Progress, was behind secretly recorded videos released in 2015 purporting to prove that Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts. Not long after their release, the videos, which prompted investigations into Planned Parenthood by numerous states and congress, were found to be edited and manipulated. Meanwhile, the investigations into Planned Parenthood have come up empty.
Well, Monday saw Daleiden get introduced to irony. Karma came full circle when a grand jury in Texas, while investigating accusations of misconduct against Planned Parenthood, indicted both Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on one charge of tampering with a governmental record, a felony. Merritt is also an employee of the Center for Medical Progress. The jury cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing and also indicted Daleiden on a second charge related to purchasing human organs, which is a misdemeanor.

We’ll have to wait and see how things play out and what the idictments result in, but for now we can enjoy some good old fashioned karma.
