A Houston Grand Jury investigating the bogus Planned Parenthood videos has returned a surprising and gratifying result.
According to Houston Public Media, the grand jury declined to indict Planned Parenthood after concluding a two-month investigation into their conduct.
Instead, they indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the videographers who infiltrated Planned Parenthood with the intent to smear them.
Daleiden and Merritt have both been indicted by the grand jury for Tampering with a Governmental Record, a 2nd degree felony. Daleiden was also indicted for Prohibition of the Purchase and Sale of Human Organs, a misdemeanor.
If convicted on the felony charge, Daleiden and Merritt could face anywhere from 2 to 20 years in prison, as well as financial penalties.
It seems Texas doesn't take kindly to anyone falsifying identifications in order to pretend they are "investigative reporters."
Update 1: The arrest warrant has been issued:
NEW: Per the Harris County District Clerk's Office, an arrest warrant has been issued for Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden
