From the February 4, 2011, edition of Salem Radio's The Mike Gallagher Show:

GALLAGHER: By the way, how about Planned Parenthood being maybe defunded by the members of congress? Have you been following this latest video?

WALLACE: Well, yeah, this is like ACORN, right?

GALLAGHER: Same thing. They go in there and --

WALLACE: How stupid, wouldn't you think - I mean, wouldn't the word would have gone out to all these organizations. I mean, you know what it really tells you? That's who these guys are, and this is what really goes on.

GALLAGHER: That's my point. I've said that all week, because I guarantee you a memo went out to all of these centers saying listen, "you may have some people pretending to be pimps and prostitutes, for goodness sakes, don't give advice on how to get a 15-year old an abortion." And they turn around and do it again. So that, to me, that's the culture that exists at Planned Parenthood. You just nailed it. And so, you know, now we've got members of the Republican caucus saying let's get these guys defunded. $300 million a year of taxpayer money goes to these clowns.

WALLACE: Is that true, $300 million?

GALLAGHER: 300 million.

WALLACE: Why when we're broke are we giving $300 million to that?

GALLAGHER: You're starting to sound like a conservative.

WALLACE: Well, everyone - a broken clock is right twice a day.

GALLAGHER: You got that right.
