IFPC denies new group has ties to national organization with same name (Iowa Independent)
Despite sharing a name, numerous connections and an anti-gay marriage agenda, Iowa Family Policy Center President Chuck Hurley says the new incarnation of his organization — The Family Leader — has no affiliation whatsoever to a national group with the same name and apparent ties to the Mormon church.
IFPC’s The Family Leader will be an umbrella group led by former gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats, fresh from his successful campaign to oust three Iowa Supreme Court justices for their 2009 gay marriage ruling. The new group will incorporate the Iowa Family Policy Center, the IFPC PAC and the formerly federally funded program Marriage Matters. More specifics about the group are expected to be announced this weekend at IFPC’s annual fundraiser featuring possible 2012 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee.
Vander Plaats told the Des Moines Register that the main focus of the group will be vetting and endorsing 2012 presidential candidates.
