Walker Campaign Spokeswoman Supports Planned Parenthood, Abortion


Last Thursday, news broke that Gov. Scott Walker's campaign spokeswoman, Alleigh Marre, is a vocal supporter of Planned Parenthood, abortion, and contraception.

"Obviously, that's a problem. These are top positions," said Matt Sande, Pro-Life Wisconsin's Legislative Director. "They should be of one mind on these core social issues. I think he needs a new spokeswoman, immediately."

The same day, Gov. Walker defended his hiring of Marre, saying he hires people for his campaign based on their abilities, not their pro-life beliefs. He added that Marre would be keeping her job. “She’s not a policy maker in those particular issues,” he said in her defense. “She’s acting as a communications person.”
