The Mystery on the Hill – Updated
A mystery is brewing over the appearance of Sen. Sam Brownback’s John Hancock on an inflammatory letter questioning the religious bona fides of prominent pro-abortion-rights Catholic Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.
The missive — signed on official-looking letterhead that reads “United States Senator Sam Brownback (Republican-Kansas)” — takes issue with Catholic Dems who support the Freedom of Choice Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade.
“Real Catholics need a new voice — not the likes of Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi who have campaigned as Catholics while voting to undermine the values we hold most dear,” Brownback (apparently) wrote in a fundraising appeal on behalf of the conservative Catholic Advocate newspaper.

If Brownback did write that, all I have to say is good for him! I couldn’t agree more! Isn’t it odd that when someone speaks the truth it’s described as “inflammatory”? Let’s all continue to pray for the conversion of all our pro-abort politicians.
A Washington group has filed a complaint with the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee against Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback.
The complaint was filed Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW. It concerns a recent anti-abortion fundraising letter sent out under Brownback’s name.
The letter criticizes Democratic senators who are Catholic but support abortion rights.
The letter was from a conservative group, Catholic Advocate, but it contained Brownback’s name and title. CREW contends the mailing violates a Senate rule against members using their letterhead for fundraising appeals.
Brownback spokesman Brian Hart said the senator asked Catholic Advocate to stop using the letter even before CREW complained. He also said Brownback’s office believes there was no violation of Senate rules.
Writing a truthful letter on the wrong stationery is certainly much more evil than advocating abortion — the murder of 3,750 babies each day in the United States.
