ACLU rejects white supremacist's lawsuit
The American Civil Liberties Union wants nothing to do with white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller's lawsuit against Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.
Documents filed today in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri indicate no lawyer wants to help Miller in his effort to have his name placed on a party ballot for the Seventh District Congressional seat currently held by Roy Blunt.
Attorneys who have rejected him, according to the documents, are Bob Harmon of the ACLU, Craig Hosmer, and Jason Shaeffer.
Of course, Miller blames the media. "Attorneys refuse my case out of fear of personal damages should they represent a man who has been labeled a 'white supremacist' by the media, as I have via more than 300 newspapers an TV and radio news broadcasts just the past two weeks."
So naturally, Miller claims his civil rights have been violated and he is asking to have a court-appointed attorney. He still wants to have his name placed on the Democratic ballot (his first choice). He was rejected by that party, as well as by the Republican and Libertarian parties.
Miller says Ms. Carnahan "acted in accordance with the unconstitutional policy to prevent white persons who publicly espouse pro-white racial viewpoints as part of their political views, are prevented from fully exercising their constitutional rights to free speech and equal access to and full participation in the electoral process as persons who do not."
