    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 6/11/03 | REBECCA CARR and DEBBIE HIOTT
    WASHINGTON -- Membership in the American Civil Liberties Union is soaring and its leaders attribute the growth to one of their chief opponents: Attorney General John Ashcroft. The ACLU has seen its membership increase more than 30 percent to 400,000 since the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001. That far surpasses any membership increase in the organization's 83-year-old history. "The more people find out about the policies of John Ashcroft, the more concerned people get," said Laura W. Murphy, director of the organization's legislative office in Washington. "He has made himself the poster child for...

    Several board members of the American Civil Liberties Union expressed concerns at a meeting yesterday over proposed standards that would prohibit board members from publicly criticizing the organization's policies and internal operations. "I cannot vote for these proposals, as I have violated them nearly every time I have written an op-ed piece or spoken to the press," said Mary Ellen Gale, an at-large member. Bennett Hammer, a board member representing the organization's New Mexico affiliate, cited examples of decisions in the last few years that he said had embarrassed the A.C.L.U. and contended that adopting the proposals would be yet...

    WASHINGTON - (KRT) - Membership in the American Civil Liberties Union and similar groups has soared since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, an increase that is especially noteworthy because the ACLU appears to be making significant headway among conservatives, who have traditionally despised the organization. The ACLU has signed up such prominent conservatives as former Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.), a firebrand whom liberals loved to hate when he was in Congress. It has formed lobbying alliances with right-leaning groups from the American Conservative Union to the Eagle Forum to Americans for Tax Reform. "You name it, we've gone into...

    ACLU, Once Branded Ultraliberal, Sees Membership Surge After Sept. 11 Terror Attacks The Associated Press W A S H I N G T O N, Dec. 1 — Whether protecting the disenfranchised or standing up for the right to offend, the American Civil Liberties Union has sided with those claiming they were wronged, even if it meant a distinctly minority stand. But since Sept. 11 and the government's expansive campaign of monitoring and detention, people are turning to the 82-year-old organization to help safeguard their liberties. Among them are conservatives who made the phrase "card-carrying member of the ACLU"...

    Stop The ACLU ^ | 11-May-06 | Jay Stephenson
    it was only a matter of time before the ACLU would chime in on USA Today’s leaking of classified information about the NSA program. And here it is…. In a story released today in USA Today it was revealed that the NSA has been collecting call information about millions of American residents and businesses served by Verizon, AT&T and BellSouth. One industry insider referred to it as the “largest database ever assembled in the world.” The American Civil Liberties Union strongly condemned the Bush administration’s most egregious abuse of power to date.... While Congress is investigating that, maybe they should...

    Man bites dog is news. Now someone's suing the American Civil Liberties Union, possibly the nation's most-litigious liberal group, for – gasp! – invasion of privacy. The number of times the ACLU has dragged others into court for every conceivable abrogation of political correctness would be hard to assess. This time it's the ACLU that's on the other end of the litigation stick. It has to do with a suit filed in a county court in Nashville, Tenn., by a university sophomore who says the ACLU invaded his privacy by publishing his photograph depicting him as a convicted criminal in ...

    COPYRIGHT DRUDGE REPORT ^ | Thu Mar 04 2004 | MATT DRUDGE
    Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign used a controversial marketing practice offered by one of the country's three credit bureaus to collect additional information last year about people who, according to the campaign, indicated that they would like to help the candidate in the primaries and caucuses. ROLL CALL reports on Thursday: The contracts with Equifax Marketing Services worth about $36,000 called for the company to find so-called 'appendages' in its massive consumer database. Appending is a practice that involves plugging bits of information into databases in order to collect e-mail addresses or flesh out consumer profiles. The practice has been...
