The following press release was forwarded to me this morning. It comes from Mindy Paterson's Alliance for Truth:
HSUS FLEES MISSOURI WITH TAIL BETWEEN LEGS
Radical Animal Rights Group Shifts Focus to National PUPS Bill
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) funded front group, "Your Vote Counts" announced that they are suspending their campaign to push an amendment to the Missouri Constitution that would promote direct democracy and mob rule through ballot proposition. Mindy Patterson, Campaign Director for The Alliance for Truth which lead the fight to oppose "Your Votes Counts" in addition to the HSUS sponsored 2010 Proposition B, released the following statement today:
"While this is great news for Missouri, it is believed that HSUS is more than likely leaving Missouri to focus its efforts and their $130 million of annual donation revenue on a dangerous piece of federal legislation called the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act (P.U.P.S.) which is intended to destroy the dog breeding industry and pure bred dog sales nationwide. Having been thwarted in their efforts to fool Missourians, HSUS will now use their deceptive lobbying tactics to destroy law-abiding animal enterprises nationwide. American families who enjoy the ability to afford and purchase pure-bred dogs should stand up and say "NO" to the HSUS agenda of making dog breeding a prohibitively expensive enterprise."
