Lawmaker Duped by "The Onion"

Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) reposted an article from The Onion which satirically claimed that Planned Parenthood had announced the opening "of its long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex."

An image of the post was captured by Literally Unbelievable, which tracks Facebook users who think Onion articles are real. The original post has since been deleted.
