  • But it wasn't obligated to keep the money.

    And so, in the weeks following the election, Bott distributed the $4,000 to pregnancy resource centers in Missouri and Indiana, which were targeted with the Obama ads, the Baptist Press reported.

    "We tried to find a way to take lemons and make lemonade," Rich Bott, executive vice president of the network, told Baptist Press. "We felt we had an obligation to clarify our position to our listeners. We aired editorials at the same time his advertisement was running explaining to our listeners that we were required to air those ads and that we objected to his position on life and gay 'marriage.'

    "And, we pledged to our listeners that we would donate the revenue from those announcements to pro-life pregnancy centers."

  • At least they used campaign funds for a purpose that can be useful, instead of the way our politicians use them...
