The American Constitutional Rights Union filed an amicus brief in support of Coach Joe Kennedy, who lost his teaching job because he knelt and said a quiet prayer by himself after a football game ended. The Ninth Circuit noted that, because Coach Kennedy taught and coached football at a public high school, his prayer was government speech that has no First Amendment protection and that, even if his prayer was private, the City would violate the Establishment Clause if it allowed the prayer to continue.
The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) applauds a 6-3 ruling of the Supreme Court re-affirming states’ authority to manage their own elections and protect the integrity of their residents’ most fundamental right — voting. ACRU submitted an amicus brief in support of Arizona’s voting integrity measures. “Free and fair elections is a fundamental principle we must protect,” notes ACRU President Lori Roman. “Why does the left continue to oppose the basic election integrity tenet of ‘Easy to vote, hard to cheat?’ We’re pleased the Supreme Court has taken a stand to preserve one of our most fundamental rights.”
Attorney General Edwin Meese III and ACRU File Amicus Brief: Job Creators Network v. Major League Baseball
Georgia enacted the Election Integrity Act of 2021 (SB 202) in March 2021 in the aftermath of 2020 election controversies. Defendants moved their All-Star Game from Atlanta shortly thereafter, alleging that SB 202 violates voting rights.
In 2018, ACRU successfully sued Starr County, TX for voting irregularities. The County settled, agreeing to fix their corrupt system. Apparently they have not honored settlement terms, or cleaned up their act, as last week Republican primary voters were shooed away from voting by election officials or told to "just vote for a Democrat." News flash to Starr County from ACRU: we'll be back.
ACRU sued Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes in 2016 for not maintaing voter rolls, thus opening the door for fraud. She lost her job, and pro-vote integrity Pete Antonacci was appointed by then-Gov. Rick Scott. Florida’s upcoming primary is March 17th, and all (Irish and otherwise) eyes are on Broward. So far, it seems Antonacci has done all the right things to secure the county’s votes in anticipation of the national scrutiny that will be on Broward on November 3.
