Florida Supreme Court funds ACLU

From the Center for Reclaiming America...

The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ has uncovered documents revealing that the Florida Supreme Court is responsible for helping to fund the ACLU of Florida — using interest from legal trust funds generated by unsuspecting home buyers, heirs, and legal awards and settlements. Between 1990 and 1997, the Florida Bar Foundation (FBF), a creation of the Florida Supreme Court, provided more than $600,000 to help pay the salary of the ACLU of Florida’s legal director.

Incredibly, the Florida Supreme Court approved these appropriations, despite the fact that the Court often issues rulings in cases argued by the ACLU’s legal director. One would assume that such funding would create a conflict of interest — but not in the eyes of the Court. In a letter faxed to the Center, the FBF admitted that every instance in which it offered funding to the ACLU of Florida, it was “specifically approved from time to time by the Supreme Court of Florida.”

The Florida Supreme Court has a long track record of abusing the law, from their complicity in the murder of Terri Schiavo to their attempt to allow Al Gore to swindle George W. Bush out of the Florida electoral votes.

The 2004 annual report of the Florida Bar Foundation noted that as of June 2004 there were 22,688 accounts worth more than $3.60 billion contributing interest to fund the Florida Bar Foundation. In turn, this publicly funded foundation has distributed more than $175 million to various organizations during the past twenty years.

Quite a tidy little scam they've got going there, isn't it.

The ACLU of Florida claims that it does “not receive any government funding” and that it is “funded entirely with private donations, foundation grants, court-awarded legal fees and membership dues.”

However, the truth is that the ACLU has used the government (the Florida Supreme Court) to operate a multi-million dollar foundation which strips monies from unsuspecting Floridians so that it can fund legal efforts to oppose common sense legislation passed by the elected representatives of those same unsuspecting citizens.

More and more people and groups are calling for the ACLU to be investigated for acts of treason. Having so many ACLU judges placed on the courts, who rarely recuse themselves when deciding matters for an organization to which they belong, I doubt such an investigation would go far. We've allowed a monster to grow...can it be stopped?

Coverage: Stop the ACLU!

Why does that not surprise me. Those Guardian laws are something out of the twilight zone. Can the ACLU be stopped? You would think so but why do we have to even ask.
