ACLU Reestablishes Orange County Office
News from the Los Angeles Daily Journal reports that the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is opening an office in conservative Orange County. It must be true: the group is actively advertising for a legal assistant to help staff attorneys in the office.
There's no doubt that the ACLU has recently been active here, seeking last week to assure voting for former Representative Chris Cox's seat for Jewish voters, since the election was set for the first day of Rosh Hashanah.
Surely it will come as a shock to OC Republicans, and to others, a welcome relief. The Daily Journal article by Blair Clarkson quotes Birdie Reed, President of the ACLU's Orange County Chapter, who noted in the article that the ACLU had an office here eight years ago, and has been missed since then.
