Southern Independence: Antidote to Tyranny

Has Ralph Reed abused and misled Christians for personal profit?

In reviewing some of the commentary on truth in political advertising ran across a disturbing article about Ralph Reed's involvement in convicted felon Abramoff activities. This time it is not fleecing Indians of their gambling profits.

Ralph Reed lobbying for the sweat shops in the Northern Mariana Islands where Chinese labors are brought in to produce "Made in USA" label clothing. Hiring foreign labor to work in very poor conditions for low wages for corporate greed is hardly what many would consider a Christian way to do business.

But look at how Ralph Reed used his prior connections with many Christians to exert pressure on Congress:

The flyer said the legislation would stop Chinese workers from coming to the island where they are "exposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ" and where many "are converted to the Christian faith and return to China with Bibles in hand."

But no mention of the poor working conditions, poor pay and reliance on foreign workers as cheap labor for corporate greed.

How many Christians were tricked into lobbying Congress to continue questionable labor practices, possibly even to the extent of supporting abortions?

"We . . .  have evidence that at least some of the Chinese workers, when they become pregnant, are given a three-way choice: go home to China, get a back-alley abortion on Saipan, or get fired."

In the questionable Indian Tribe dealings, with the questionable false Ministry setup to lobby for China trade status, the questionable lobbying for ENRON and now the lobbying for questionable labor practices there is a common theme in Ralph Reed's responses.

He did not know about the questionable practices and if he had known he would have been opposed.

Seems that his knowledge swings with the amount of money (into his pocket) involved.

We should look to men with a better record of taking responsibility for their actions for our Lt. Governor.

Abramoff lobbied against legislation to impose federal wage and worker-safety standards on garment factories in the Northern Mariana Islands, where Chinese workers were brought in to produce clothing labeled "Made in the USA."  Abramoff received just over $4 million for this work from 1998 through 2002.

On May 29 the Washington Post broke the story that Reed, an old friend of Abramoff since college days, had been hired to help in this effort as well. The newspaper described a flyer sent by Reed's marketing firm in 1999 urging Alabama conservative Christians to contact Bob Riley, then a member of the House, to vote against the legislation opposed by Abramoff. The flyer said the legislation would stop Chinese workers from coming to the island where they are "exposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ" and where many "are converted to the Christian faith and return to China with Bibles in hand."

As Cagle's ad says, however, the US Interior Department had found a year earlier that female Chinese garment workers were pressured to have abortions if they became pregnant, and that women and children were being forced into prostitution on the island. In a statement March 31, 1998, President Clinton's Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt said, "We . . .  have evidence that at least some of the Chinese workers, when they become pregnant, are given a three-way choice: go home to China, get a back-alley abortion on Saipan, or get fired."

Reed's story is that he was unaware of reports that women were being mistreated, and was only working "to promote the propagation of the gospel" among Chinese workers on the island.  Reed's spokeswoman Lisa Baron confirmed to the Post that Abramoff hired Reed's marketing firm for the effort. But she added, "As a defender of the unborn, Ralph was unaware of any allegations regarding inhumane or illegal treatment of workers, and he would strongly object to such practices, if true."
