Volokh’s Orin Kerr‘s looking at the ACLU
Have you heard about the powerful international organization that engages in invasive, Big Brother-esque data mining; creates digital dossiers on people in violation of their own privacy policies; does all of this with no oversight and no judical review; and when challenged, tries to cover-up its practices?

The American Civil Liberties Union is using sophisticated technology to collect a wide variety of information about its members and donors in a fund-raising effort that has ignited a bitter debate over its leaders’ commitment to privacy rights.
Back in the olden days I used to believe in the ACLU standing for civil liberties. Believe no more, as far as I go, as the ACLU has made a complete mockery of civil liberties.
