David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt have been cleared of all charges for making false drivers licenses. The official charge was “tampering with government records.”
Daleiden and Merritt were indicted for making fake IDs in a plot to trap the supposedly benevolent Planned Parenthood providers of medical care for oppressed women. Oh, and who were harvesting and selling unborn children’s body parts.
And who were illegally manipulating the abortion procedures to maximize the saleability of harvested parts.
The charges against Daleiden and Merritt were dropped at the request of the Harris County DA’s office who had originally considered indicting Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden and Merritt had used the fake IDs to gain access to PP staff and produce several undercover videos. The videos show Planned Parenthood officials and employees engaging in conversations and negotiations about the sale of body parts.
