The ACLU Approves Limits on Speech: On campaign contributions, a dramatic about-face.

    Floyd Abrams, Ira Glass and Joel Gora write at the Wall Street Journal: “If that headline has a certain man bites dog quality, it’s because for almost 40 years the ACLU was the one major liberal organization that opposed campaign finance restrictions as violating the First Amendment . . . Nonetheless, we’ve come to this: The premier First Amendment organization in America now favors limitations on the First Amendment in the area in which all agree it must have its most powerful application—political speech during election campaigns.”

    “Mr. Abrams represented Sen. Mitch McConnell in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Mr. Glasser was executive director of the ACLU from 1978-2001. Mr. Gora, a professor at Brooklyn Law School, is counsel to ACLU on campaign finance cases.”

    “We’ve learned from our friends on the Hill that in the next few weeks Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) will introduce an amendment to the FY 2011 Defense Authorization bill for either a moratorium on the enforcement of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ (DADT) or an outright repeal of the policy. If the Senate fast-tracks the process, it would short-circuit the military’s review of any potential fallout from the change.”

    The Economist: ” . . . a broader groundswell of debate that is beginning to erode the religious conservatives’ long-uncontested control. Saudi Arabia’s beleaguered liberals had placed high hopes in King Abdullah, who succeeded to the throne in 2005 with a reputation for reformist tendencies. But the 85-year-old monarch has proved wary of provoking a conservative backlash. It is only now that slow, gentle pressure from the top is producing inklings of change.”
