Regarding the Endorsement of Candidates 2/20/2007
Recently, there have been several articles in the press reporting on Maxine Sieleman’s support for Senator John McCain for president. These articles have mentioned that Mrs. Sieleman founded the Iowa chapter of Concerned Women for America (CWA). CWA wanted to take this opportunity to clarify that Mrs. Sieleman was acting in an individual capacity when she endorsed Senator McCain and was not acting on behalf of CWA or its Iowa chapter. CWA does not support or oppose candidates for political office. CWA’s state director for Iowa is Tamara Scott.
Mrs. Beverly LaHaye is the founder of CWA national.
Ok so why in August of 2006 did CWA make this press release?

August 24, 2006 For Immediate Release
Concerned Women for America of Pennsylvania Legislative Action Committee endorses Rick Santorum for U.S. Senate
Zelienople- – Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee of Pennsylvania considers it an honor to endorse Senator Rick Santorum for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
Beverly LaHaye, founder and chairman of Concerned Women Political Action Committee (CWPAC), states, “If the United States Senate falls into the hands of Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton, you and I can forget about another pro-life justice on the Supreme Court and overturning Roe v. Wade. And we can forget about any other meaningful pro-life, pro-family measures ever seeing a vote. Even pro-abortion Senators like Barbara Boxer have come out in favor of Bob Casey, JR., saying `to dislodge Santorum is a pro-choice win!!!”
Hmm, well we see that not only is CWA irresponsible with other’s information, they aren’t even responsible enough to check to see if they’ve made endorsements before.
