SAN DIEGO — Jennifer Tierney, spokeswoman for District Attorney and Mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis, today issued the following statement responding to Nathan Fletcher’s weak defense of his sudden interest in choice and women’s issues:

“If Nathan Fletcher has always been pro-choice he has a funny way of showing it.

“Fletcher’s pro-choice claim is not supported by his record, his actions, or the facts.

“FACT:  In 2009, Fletcher got a 0% rating from Planned Parenthood for four votes on issues of public funding, partial-birth, and parental consent.

“FACT:  In 2009, Fletcher got a 0% rating from Pro-Choice California.

“FACT: In 2008 and 2009, Fletcher got a 0% rating from the California Abortion and Reproductive Rights League.

“He says his votes have been misconstrued.  Why won’t he tell us how they were misconstrued and why he voted the way he did?

“Even if Nathan Fletcher was actually pro-choice as he claims, why has he been silent on this issue until now?   Why didn’t he fill out the Planned Parenthood questionnaire during his Assembly races?

“Why, when you Google ‘Nathan Fletcher pro-choice,’ is it impossible to find anything about his stand on this issue that goes back longer than the mayor’s race?

“It’s one thing to be pro-life or pro-choice.  It’s another to play political games with an issue important to so many women.

  1. “My positions haven’t changed, my principles haven’t changed.”

    “And the other thing is that there’s not one position of mine that’s changed. There’s not one issue that’s changed. There’s not one principle that’s changed.”

    “I’m the exact same person today as I was yesterday as I was
    the day before.”

  2. The Invisible Woman returns! Jennifer Tierney materializes in public a month before the election. This is where things could get majorly gnarly.

  3. At best he ran away from the issue for many years. More likely, he’s changing his tune on the issue for political advantage with a targeted voter demographic. Either way, not very impressed.
