.- The Kansas-based pro-life organization “Operation Rescue” released on Wednesday a copy of a letter signed by late-term abortionist George R. Tiller, in which he stated that he personally contributed $200,000 to Pro Kan Do, a political action committee he controlled, to defeat Kathleen Sebelius' challenger in the 2002 Kansas gubernatorial race.

In the letter, Tiller also makes a plea for an additional $250,000 to influence the governor's race.

“This letter is the smoking gun showing that Sebelius continues to conceal the full extent of her financial support from Tiller,” said Troy Newman, Operation Rescue President.

“Kathleen Sebelius benefited from the hundreds of thousands of dollars that Tiller personally gave to influence the outcome of the 2002 election in her favor. This letter is undeniable evidence that Sebelius has yet to come clean with the Senate Finance Committee, and with the American people concerning her strong financial ties to abortionist Tiller,” he added.

Sebelius, a Catholic who supports legalized abortion and has been asked not to present herself for Communion by Archbishop Joseph Naumann, was nominated by President Obama to serve as the Secretary of Health and Human Services after Tom Daschle was found to have skipped paying taxes.

The Kansas governor appeared before the Senate Finance Committee for confirmation hearings on April 2, and then later submitted written answers to questions posed by lawmakers. In a written statement, she told the committee that Tiller had given her $12,450 during her campaign for Insurance Commissioner, but denied any further contributions.

Sebelius later admitted that she received an additional $26,000 in contributions, which had been uncovered by Operation Rescue and verified by the Associated Press.

“People want honesty and transparency in government and Sebelius has proven that they will never get that from her,” Newman remarked.
