WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch today released 115 pages of documents from the Office of the Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam that show he received abortion talking points directly from Planned Parenthood and that one of the Lt. Governor's senior staff members used an email address associated with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia.

These documents were obtained as a result of two separate Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

The February 1, 2019, request was seeking all records of communications of Northam or members of his staff related to "abortion, women's reproductive health, and/or Virginia House Bill 2491." Judicial Watch likewise requested communications records between Northam and his staff with Virginia State Representative Kathy Tran or her staff. Also requested were communications records between Northam, his staff and employees and representatives of Planned Parenthood and/or Emily's List.

The February 4, 2019, request was seeking records of communications, of Northam or members of his staff related to abortion, blackface, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), and/or the possible resignation of Governor Northam.

The February 1, 2019, FOIA documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that on January 30, 2019, Alexsis Rodgers, a policy director in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, used a email account.
