When it comes to accountability during the 8 years he was governor, Ed Rendell has adopted the Sgt. Schultz defense: I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing.
Rendell was governor from 2003 to 2011, a time period in which many of the horrific events at the Gosnell abortion clinic took place. (Also, let's not forget Rendell was mayor of Philadelphia before he became governor).
But Rendell claims he knew nothing of the conditions at the clinic, where 1,000 babies were butchered ever year in late-term abortions performed by Gosnell.
And even though Rendell ordered the state health department to stop inspecting abortion clinics to appease Rendell's liberal base, the guv claims it wasn't political.
