Donations To Planned Parenthood In Palin's Name Brought In Over One Million Dollars

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - There is currently an email going around encouraging people to donate to Planned Parenthood in the name of Sarah Palin. 

It is unclear who started this email but Planned Parenthood reports that it has brought in over one million dollars in donations to the organization.  

Sarah Palin will receive a thank you note in the mail for every person that donates in her name.

Leaders with "Planned Parenthood Votes", the political arm of the Planned Parenthood organization said over 30,000 people have donated in her name.

Planned Parenthood Votes Representative Brian Griffith said, "We are amazed at the phenomenal amount of support we've seen as a result of this email campaign that spread across the country."

The Benton County Republican Chairman Patrick McBurney called the email hateful, sad and twisted.

He said, "It's a left wing response designed to show contempt to the Republican ticket.

Calls to the Sarah Palin's Washington State and National headquarters were not immediately returned to KNDU.
