Pro-abortion group endorses Anita Lopez

In via e-mail (press release for those who need everything spelled out wink): Anita Lopez earns the Emily List endorsement for mayor and from experience you don't get an endorsement unless you have the same beliefs as the supporting organization. Normally you have to fill out a long survey that goes on file with the organization talking about the issues the organization hold dear. If beliefs line up, they give you an endorsement. According to the pro-life groups, "EMILY’s List is a radical pro-abortion group which supports Democratic women candidates who support abortion on demand, partial-birth abortion and using your tax dollars to pay for abortion. They also have access to vast amounts of money. "

Anita has discussed her Catholic upbringing, and if she still considers herself Catholic, it will be interesting to see how this support contradicts Catholic teaching and beliefs - which are unambiguously pro-life.

EMILY’s List Endorses Anita Lopez for Mayor of Toledo, Ohio
Lopez on Her Way to Becoming Toledo’s First Latina Mayor, First Woman Mayor In Nearly 25 Years

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Anita Lopez for mayor of Toledo, Ohio. Lopez is the ninth mayoral candidate EMILY’s List is currently backing in 2013, “Year of the Woman Mayor.” If elected, Lopez will be the first Latina mayor to represent Toledo, and the first woman mayor in nearly 25 years.

“Anita Lopez brings years of public service experience and an incredible work ethic to the table,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “She has already demonstrated her outstanding commitment to the people of Lucas County as auditor, where she provided tax relief for citizens. Anita’s experience as an effective leader makes her the right choice to create jobs and bring a responsive government to the mayor’s office. I have no doubt she will move Toledo forward, and the EMILY’s List community – now more than two million members strong – is thrilled to support her campaign.”

Anita Lopez has been a passionate public servant throughout her career. The youngest of seven children, Lopez was born and raised in Toledo by parents who were both migrant workers. Lopez became the first member of her family to graduate from college, earning a bachelor’s degree and juris doctorate from the University of Toledo. After graduating, Lopez began her career serving on the Lucas County Children’s Services Board and later as general counsel for the Toledo Fair Housing Center. In 2001, she won a seat on the Toledo Public School Board. Lopez was elected Lucas County Recorder in 2004 and ran successfully for Lucas County Auditor two years later, becoming the first Hispanic to serve in both capacities. In her second term as auditor, she has focused on making government more transparent and accessible to her constituents. Lopez has two sons, Armand and Andres.

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $350 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making it one of the most successful political action committees in the country. Throughout its 28 year history, the organization has recruited and trained over 8,000 women to run, worked to elect 101 pro-choice Democratic women to the House, 19 to the Senate, 10 governors, and over five hundred women to state and local office. Since its founding in 1985, EMILY’s List helped elect 97% of the Democratic women of color in Congress, including every single Latina, African American, and Asian American Democratic woman currently serving. And during the 2011-2012 cycle, EMILY’s List had the largest number of members and donors in its history and raised a record-breaking $52 million dollars. With the help of this growing community — now more than two million members strong — EMILY’s List helped elect an historic number of candidates in 2012 including 19 new women to the House, six Senate incumbents, three new Senators, and 186 state and local officials.

Sounds like a great organization to join. Thanks for posting. BTW, how can I read Lopez's emails? How do you do it? Did you hack into her computer? Do you have someone in her office who is disgruntled and back stabbing her? Tell us more how this via email works.
I'm all ears unless you seen me naked.

OMG what an asshole you are. When chris references via e mail he means he got an e mail FROM Anita's office. Wow you are really stupid.

a press release from Emily's List. I only hack the Lucas County Republican Party Web site.

So she is pro abortion. This has something to do with being a mayor how? What did you think that by posting this little tidbit of information that there would be readers of this message board who would gasp and say " I'm not voting for her ". That could be. I was undecided but I think I will vote for her now. Thanks for making up my mind.

would be a big deciding factor for many people - and since Emily's List is making a big deal about it, others should know this too. Technically if she is Catholic, which she admits she was Catholic, it would be interesting to see how she tries to explain how her political beliefs contradict her religious beliefs - definately something to ask. Kermit Gosnell was pro-abortion too - everyone can choose who they like or not like or to respect God given life or not. Voters should know these are her beliefs since she has taken the time to get an endorsement from an organization that shares some of the same beliefs as Kermit Gosnell.

No shit fatboy. What are you a moron? When mumbles Wilson was in town and you used to give him head, did he ever set a beer on top of your head while you were slurping away?
