    Investigators with the California Department of Justice on Tuesday raided the home of David Daleiden, the anti-abortion activist behind a series of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood, the activist said.

    Authorities seized a laptop and multiple hard drives from his Orange County apartment, Daleiden said in an email. The equipment contained all of the video Daleiden had filmed as part of his 30-month project, “including some very damning footage that has yet to be released to the public,” he said.

    A spokeswoman for California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D) said she could not comment on an ongoing investigation. But the raid confirms that California is among the states looking into possible criminal activity on the part of Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, which have been the center of controversy since releasing videos purporting to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells fetal tissue for a profit.

    Planned Parenthood has denied the allegations, and numerous state investigations have so far turned up no evidence of wrongdoing by the group. However, a Houston grand jury earlier this year indicted Daleiden in connection with fake driver’s licenses he used to gain access to Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion provider conferences.

    “We fully support a thorough investigation into the activities perpetrated by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress,” president Vicki Saporta said in a statement. “As the evidence has shown in our case, he engaged in a long-running criminal conspiracy. His actions are not without consequences.”

    Saporta said the videos have led to a spike in threats and violence against abortion clinics.

    “David Daleiden’s lies are catching up with him,” Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Erica Sackin said in a statement. “The only people who engaged in wrongdoing are the extremists who broke multiple laws to spread lies about Planned Parenthood — and it looks like they’re finally being held accountable.”

    Daleiden accused Harris, who is running for Senate, of mounting a politically motivated campaign against him. “We will pursue all remedies to vindicate our First Amendment rights,” he said in a statement.

    Is it too far fetched to think he's being punished for attacking the wrong politically connected organization?

    He had a video with much more damning evidence. That for some reason he never bothered to show anyone else or make a copy of.

    I think it may be a bit strong to use the word "attacking".

    I'm not familiar with this story but from the article, it seems as though he simply recorded a few videos at Planned Parenthood locations.

    Was that the extent of what he did?

    Far more than that guy, the video he created was fake from top to bottom. He filmed a still born and claimed it was like a 8 month abortion, It drove some on the far right to foaming at the mouth and one nut job killed several people at a planned parenthood in Colorado, so yeah

    California Penal Code 470b PC makes it a crime to either

    • display, or
    • possess,
    any fake identification, with the intent to use that fake ID to commit a forgery.1

    The technical legal definition of “fake ID” in California criminal law is any driver's license or other identification card issued by a governmental agency that has been

    • altered,
    • falsified,
    • forged,
    • duplicated,
    • reproduced, or
    • counterfeited.2
    And “intent to use that fake ID to commit a forgery” means an intent to use the ID to commit fraud—that is, deceive another person, in order to cause loss or damage to a legal, financial, or property right.3

    Penalties

    PC 470b displaying or possessing a fake ID is what is known as a California “wobbler.”

    This means that it can be charged as either a California misdemeanor or a California felony, depending on the circumstances.4

    The misdemeanor penalties for this crime are up to one (1) year in county jail, and/or a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000).5

    The potential felony penalties are sixteen (16) months, two (2) years or three (3) years' imprisonment, and/or a fine of up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000).6

    He has also been indicted by a Texas grand jury, oddly enough.

    Washington (CNN)A Texas investigation into Planned Parenthood on Monday culminated in an indictment -- of the organization's accusers instead of the group.

    The Harris County District Attorney's office announced that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast had been cleared in the two-month-long investigation.
    But the grand jury did indict two individuals who were involved in making secret recordings of the group that were released to publicly discredit the group, which provides health services and abortions.
    David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted for tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony, and Daleiden was also indicted on the count of prohibition of the purchase and sale of human organs, a class A misdemeanor, according to the Harris County district attorney.
    According to the Harris County District Clerk's website, a warrant for Daleiden had been issued Monday evening. Daleiden's Twitter profile identifies his residence as Irvine, California, where his group, the Center for Medical Progress, is located. The indictments were not yet available.

    He's facing several felony charges in Texas, the drivers license is the least of his worries.

    so the gremlins got into his camera and created that video? Sounds logical.
