A Tacit Reply from Catholics in Alliance

Last week I posted about the Catholic left's habit of lying for the president about his support for "reducing abortion" and the Pregnant Women Support Act.

I specifically challenged Catholics in Alliance/Catholics United to use their influence to actually get the president on board with PWSA instead of fudging his record and said:
Were they Catholics first and not merely an extension of the president's campaign (or jonesing for jobs), they would be "fighting within their parties . . . to protect the unborn." And yet, while they issue any number of statements defending the president's actions and challenging others - they have never publicly challenged the president.

Not to diminish the fact that they are an extension of the president's campaign, but "jonesing for jobs" turns out to be high on their list of priorities and accomplishments. Via NCR:
Alexia Kelley, Executive Director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, has been named Director of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Alliance congratulates Ms. Kelley on this distinguished appointment, and we offer our deepest appreciation for her tireless service to Catholics in Alliance over the past several years.

Off the campaign, into the administration.
