Leslee Unruh Lie Update: Sure Sounds Like She Likes Federal Money

Last spring, Leslee Unruh lied to our faces in that Sioux Falls paper, telling us, "I've never liked federal money."

Unruh hums a different tune in a recent Newsweek article on the Obama Administration's plan to save a couple hundred million a year by cutting funding for an empirically proven failure:

"If the president's [budget] proposal is enacted similar to what he recommended, it will have a chilling effect on abstinence education across the country," says Leslee Unruh, director of the Abstinence Clearinghouse, a national association of abstinence-only organizations [Sarah Kliff, "The Future of Abstinence," Newsweek, 2009.10.27].

Sure doesn't sound like the cheery optimism of someone glad to see federal funds disappear.
