Congress asked to investigate the ACLU

From WorldNetDaily...

Following the ACLU's legal action against New York City for allegedly violating citizens' rights by random searches on subways, Congress is being asked to probe the group for "widespread use of frivolous lawsuits."

"The ACLU's abuse of the legal system is criminal," said Don Swarthout, president of Christians Reviving America's Values, an advocacy group asking for the investigation....

Swarthout contends the ACLU is coming against the constitutional duty of the United States government, which requires the protection of citizens.

"What is in question here is the definition of freedom," he said. "Freedom comes with responsibility. The ACLU has become an anti-Christian, pro-terrorist, entity whose only goal is to get the headlines to keep donations rolling in."...

"The never-ceasing flow of litigation against cities, states, and the federal government is nothing more than fund-raising stunts," Swarthout said. "Many of the ACLU's victories come not because their complaint is just, but because the municipality budget is inadequate to match the abusive onslaught."

It's about time. But I fear that our courts are packed with too many judges who are former ACLU attorneys for this to go very far.
