David Daleiden faces felony charges

California officials on Tuesday searched the home of David Daleiden—the anti-abortion activist who surreptitiously filmed videos of his meetings with Planned Parenthood officials and falsely claimed the organization was selling “baby parts.” Daleiden is now finding out what it means to face felony charges of tampering with government records, among other allegations. Politico reports:

California Attorney General Kamala Harris said last summer that she would investigate whether Daleiden broke laws in the course of his sting operation, which spurred a huge political battle over Planned Parenthood’s federal funding. Daleiden filmed part of his project in Planned Parenthood clinics in California.

Investigators took Daleiden’s personal laptop and multiple hard drives from his Orange County, Calif., home, according to a source close to Daleiden. They also attempted to take his phone as he was talking to his attorneys, the source said.

Daleiden and his allies continue to believe that it’s a First Amendment right, not to mention normal, for journalists to falsify government records and misrepresent themselves in the course of pursuing a story. We’re going to see how that works out for him.
