Phone number found inside car of man suspected of killing George Tiller belongs to woman who plotted 1988 clinic bombing

KMBC Channel 9 captured this shot of a phone number to anti-abortion group Operation Rescue inside the car of Scott Roeder, the man suspected of shooting and killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller Sunday morning at a Wichita church.


The phone number is written on an envelope with the name

“Cheryl” and “Op Rescue.” Cheryl is Cheryl Sullenger, Operation

Rescue’s senior policy adviser, who in 1988 was convicted of

conspiring to bomb a California abortion clinic. She served two years in prison.

Sullenger tells The Pitch that she hasn’t spoken with Roeder recently.

“No, he hasn’t called me recently,” Sullenger said. “No.”

She went on: “You know, he’s somebody who’s been around. My name is on the Internet. It’s on every press release. My phone number is on every press release it. It’s all over the internet. I don’t know. He probably has lots of people’s phone numbers. You know? So I don’t know. I don’t have any more comment other than that.”

Operation Rescue has denied any affiliation with Scott Roeder. Operation Rescue‘s Web site is down. So is the affiliated site, ChargeTiller.com. (Correction: ChargeTiller.com is unaffiliated with Operation Rescue.)
