With exposed groper Al Franken on the way out, everyone expected a more popular replacement.

Instead, Minnesota’s Governor baffled the pundits by drafting an insider from a major liberal industry.

And the shocking agenda this liberal rolls out has left Americans fuming.

Pegged an abortion industry insider, former Planned Parenthood Vice President (VP) Tina Smith was just slotted as Al Franken’s replacement to the U.S. Senate.

While VP, Smith ensured almost half a million dollars from Minnesota taxpayers were paid to Planned Parenthood for conducting abortions and she saw the organization receive millions more in government grants.

But even with most Minnesotans identifying as Pro-Life, Governor Mark Dayton feels comfortable pushing liberal Planned Parenthood’s own champion as his state’s next U.S. Senator.

Conservatives and Pro-Life leaders immediately decried the move as a blatant strike against the people’s interests.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Leo LaLonde, President of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, called her appointment ‘egregious.’

‘Gov. Mark Dayton’s appointment of Tina Smith to represent Minnesota in the U.S. Senate is overwhelmingly disappointing to the state’s pro-life majority,’ he told LifeNews. ‘An abortion industry insider, Ms. Smith is a former vice president of Planned Parenthood in Minnesota, the state’s leading performer of abortion. The choice of Ms. Smith is particularly egregious to Minnesota’s pro-life citizens, who will have no representation in the Senate.’

He added: ‘Most Minnesotans are pro-life. They support greater protection for unborn human beings. Minnesotans need someone who will fight for justice for the most vulnerable among us, the unborn.’

Tina Smith has been currently serving as the state’s lieutenant governor. LifeNews profiled her long and well-documented history of advocating abortion on demand:

Smith is a former vice president at Planned Parenthood in Minnesota. As a leader in the state’s abortion industry, she put her marketing background to work for Planned Parenthood from January 2003 to February 2006. The organization performed 9,717 abortions in Minnesota during that period, and increased its abortions by 22 percent. It was also reimbursed $458,574.74 by Minnesota taxpayers for performing 1,892 abortions on low-income women. Planned Parenthood became the largest abortion provider in the state in 2004—and has held that position ever since. It received $12.65 million in government grants from 2003 to 2005.”

But more than just a loyal Planned Parenthood worker, Smith actively championed the liberal cause, winning awards and recognition from left-minded groups.

The Daily Wire reported:

“Smith also led the abortion conglomerate in their fight against Woman’s Right to Know, which sought to inform women about abortion’s risks and complications, and opposed the Positive Alternatives Act of 2005, which ‘provides pregnant women in need with practical assistance and life-affirming alternatives to abortion.’ She has also asserted that pregnancy centers should have their state grants stripped if they do not refer abortions.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund honored Smith in 2012 ‘for her passion and commitment to Planned Parenthood.’”

Conservatives lost their teeth in Minnesota and the consequences are showing.

Governor Dayton drafted a liberal whose career was to fight against the Pro-Life issue most Minnesotans support, and he expects smooth sailing ahead.

Should politicians feel comfortable pushing the liberal agenda without any backlash?
