In an amicus brief filed today, the ACLU took the side of the Susan B. Anthony List in a federal lawsuit it filed on October 18.

SBA List’s lawsuit attempts to stop the Ohio Election Commission from blocking billboards it planned to erect in Democrat Congressman Steve Driehaus’s OH-1 District stating he supports taxpayer funded abortions, this because he voted for Obamacare.

The ACLU agrees with SBA List that OH’s election law is unconstitutional:

RC 3517.21(B) is vague and overbroad, and it cannot withstand constitutional scrutiny…. The people have an absolute right to criticize their public officials, the government should not be the arbiter of true or false speech and, in any event, the best answer for bad speech is more speech.

For all of these reasons, Amicus ACLU of Ohio urges this Court to hold RC 3517.21(B) unconstitutional and grants Plaintiff’s motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.
