Sen. Rand Paul and a group of Republican senators are demanding Attorney General Merrick Garland and officials from the Small Business Administration (SBA) open investigations into what they call the “unlawful participation” of Planned Parenthood affiliates in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Fox News has learned.
Fox News exclusively obtained letters that Paul, R-Ky., the top Republican on the Senate Small Business Committee, sent to Garland, SBA Inspector General Mike Ware and SBA Administrator Isabel Guzman, calling for their “immediate attention” to the matter, claiming that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) applied for PPP loans with “full knowledge of their ineligibility” to receive the funds.
“We write to request your immediate attention to the unlawful participation of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in the Paycheck Protection Program,” Paul, along with GOP Sens. Marco Rubio, James Risch, Tim Scott, Joni Ernst, James Inhofe, Todd Young, John Kennedy, Josh Hawley and Roger Marshall wrote.
Rand Paul explained more on Twitter:
May 2020- @PPFA affiliates wrongfully apply for 38 PPP loans totaling more than $80 million.
March 2021- Most @PPFA affiliates haven’t returned their PPP funds, requested by SBA, but two have applied for and been approved for a second draw loan.
