Prior to her tenure at Planned Parenthood, Richards was president of America Votes, a coalition of progressive organizations to elect progressive candidates (including the Messiah Most Miserable). Andy Stern, a past president of SEIU, was a driving force behind its founding. That's another significant SEIU/Planned Parenthood tie. I'd like to point out now that while he was at SEIU, Stern had an assistant named Tom Chabolla. He still serves in that capacity to the current SEIU president.
