No good deed goes unpunished.
Via The Hill:
Rush Limbaugh’s money once helped pay for women to get abortions — sort of.
Texas novelist and abortion-rights activist Merritt Tierce told the Dallas Morning News that she had received thousands of dollars in tips from Limbaugh while waitressing. She then gave a large chunk to a group that funds abortions in Texas.
Tierce, who strongly leans liberal, said the $4,000 she received from Limbaugh while waitressing at a Dallas steakhouse felt like “blood money.”
She decided to donate “a sizable chunk” of it to an organization called Texas Equal Access Fund, which pays for about 1,000 abortions a year for low-income women.
“It felt like laundering the money in a good way,” Tierce told the Morning News about both times Limbaugh left her $2,000 tips on modest-size checks. “He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways.”
