Unethical Tweet Of The Month And Ethics Dunce: ACLU National Legal Director And Georgetown Law Prof. David Cole

foot-in-mouth-header

David Cole, ACLU National Legal Director and Professor at Georgetown University Law Center, tweeted in response to the SCOTUS ruling striking down California’s law making it mandatory for non-profits to disclose the names of their biggest donors,

Cole tweet

Gee, that’s funny! The ACLU filed an amicus brief supporting the majority’s decision in AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY FOUNDATION v. BONTA, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CALIFORNIA.

Cole is the allegedly First Amendment-protecting organization’s Legal Director, yet here he is attacking his employer and his client, while undermining the credibility of its public position in the case, and making it look like the ACLU’s right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing, or maybe it should be the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. The ACLU was standing up for freedom of association, a right based in the First Amendment, but Cole’s complaint illustrates nicely why his organization can no longer be trusted to be a Bill of Rights advocate. Its staff is polluted by partisan social justice warriors; “voter suppression” in the tweet is a tell.

Meanwhile, Cole also managed to make Georgetown Law Center look inept by having a professor on its faculty that publicly displays gross incompetence and partisan bias on social media.

This is another reason why my GULC diploma is turned face to the wall, and is likely to stay that way.

  1. Do you suppose the good professor knows the English translation of “res ipsa loquitur?” I guess he never taught, or even took Torts.

    • Too busy boning up on critical race theory and the law. What kind of graduates are these people turning out into the nation’s bars?

  2. “…and making it look like the ACLU’s right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing…”

    The ACLU doesn’t have a right hand anymore. It’s got a left hand and a far-left hand, and the left hand is atrophying.

  3. Well at least we can say this:

    If there ever was an organization anywhere which can and should allow a prominent member to disagree with and/or criticize the organization itself, it’s the ACLU.

    Right?
