Thanks to pro-lifers Michelle Wolven and Catherine Davis, a small group of us have been on this story for weeks.
While they were digging through online records of Georgia abortion clinics, they stumbled on the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife Sharon Malone Holder (both pictured right) co-owns with her sister an Atlanta area abortion clinic building.
The building is located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Georgia.
The business itself is called Old National GYN. Click on deed above and see below…
The story was so big, Catherine handed it off to Watchdog.org reporter Troy Anderson.
Anderson’s article, “Holder’s family papers over his ties to abortion doctor,” was published in Human Events today.
Anderson’s story deepens beyond the obvious breaking news that Sharon Holder, an OB/GYN herself, co-owns a building – and has for many years – that operates as an abortion clinic.
Clinic abortionist indicted on Medicaid charges
What’s more, the abortionist at Old National, Tyrone Cecile Malloy, was indicted last year by a Georgia grand jury on charges of Medicaid fraud.
The paper trail backward, according to Anderson:
The same tax records show the building was formerly owned by Dr. Mack A. Jones, late husband of another of Holder’s sister-in-laws, Vivian Malone Jones. Her death, announced in an Oct. 14, 2005 obituary in The Washington Post, reported that she was Malone Holder’s sister.
The other two sisters apparently inherited the building at that time.
Paper trail cover-up attempt
Anderson further detailed how, after he alerted the Holders and sister co-owner Margie Malone Tuckson 0f the information he had, requesting comment, the family quickly moved to put the abortion clinic building into a blind trust.
Explains a lot
Pro-lifers agree Holder’s ties to the abortion industry explain a lot – his attacks against pro-life activists and that he looks the other way on abortion industry skulduggery. Details Anderson:
Critics say it may also explain why Holder has been eager to prosecute pro-life advocates who counsel women outside abortion clinics….
“There is a clear conflict of interest when the man charged with pursuing those that abuse the system is also one who is engaged in some way with the business,” said Davis, whose organization brought the issue to the attention of Watchdog….
In recent months, judges have blocked Holder’s efforts to punish pro-life supporters counseling women outside abortion clinics. In one case, Holder’s Department of Justice agreed to pay Mary “Susan” Pine $120,000 for its filing of an “improper lawsuit” against her, according to a statement by Liberty Counsel, an Orlando, Fla.-based nonprofit legal firm. Pine counseled women on the sidewalk outside a Florida abortion clinic….
Karen Handel, the former secretary of state in Georgia and a former senior vice president of public policy for the Susan G. Komen Center, said she was “shocked” by the findings of the Watchdog investigation.
“It certainly underscores the deep ties the Obama Administration has to the abortion issue,” said Handel, author of the new book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“This certainly seems to shed some additional light into why Obama and his team seem obsessed with protecting Planned Parenthood and abortion rights at the expense of other important issues in the country.”…
Davis pointed to cases in which activists have sued Planned Parenthood for alleged Medicaid fraud – in Georgia, Iowa, Texas, New York, and Massachusetts – but where Holder’s Justice Department has failed to act.
“The U.S. attorney general has not at all pursued a case against any of them, including this one in Georgia where his wife owns the property,” Davis said.
Also add to the mix the DOJ’s October decision not to investigate an Indiana abortion clinic Allen Country Right to Life alleges is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.
