Associated Press Falsely Blames Conservative Violence For "Forcing" Rep. Stupak's Retirement

Fair and balanced from AP

After receiving threatening late-night calls during the health care debate and hearing the term “baby killer” shouted as he spoke on the House floor, Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., announced Friday that he will retire from Congress.

Conservative groups claimed credit for forcing the 18-year House veteran’s retirement.

Stupak’s retirement “shows the power of the tea party movement,” said Bryan Shroyer, political director of Tea Party Express.

Anti-anti-abortion Rep. Stupak of course was the deciding vote on Obama's socialized healthcare bill which passed. AP ludicrously makes it sound like Tea Party activists are praising threats of violence that made him lose his courage, though AP reports that he denies these were factors in his decision.

But AP leaves out one important factor. Politico reports:

Stupak .... also said that he had completed much of what he aimed to do in Congress.

So he didn't step down because of some alleged threatening calls, it was because of Obamacare. As Ken Spain said, "The political fallout over the Democrats’ government takeover of health care has put the political careers of many Democrats in jeopardy, thanks in part to Stupak’s decision to abandon his alleged pro-life principles."

So he is stepping down in disgrace after all?
