As reported by the Huffington Post, the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme has crippled the ACLU. Several prominent donors to the organization have suffered huge losses as the result of both the economic downturn and Madoff’s shenanigans.
Say what you will about the ACLU, it is one of the primary defenders of the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. I urge you to donate to the organization now. Just because we have Democratic majorities in 2/3 of the federal government, doesn’t mean we don’t need an ACLU. The ACLU does all kinds of good work in state courts as well.
Take a minute and give to the ACLU.
Democracy depends on it.
