(Neb)-ACLU "Encouraging" Public Officials Not To Block Critics On Social Media
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The ACLU of Nebraska wants public officials to not block critics from their government-affiliated social media accounts and sent them letters encouraging them to correct problems before litigation options are explored.
Nebraska ACLU legal director Amy Miller says it received complaints about U-S Senator Deb Fischer, the rest of the state's congressional delegation. Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert, and the York County Sheriff's Office.
Miller says elected officials who block people from official accounts are violating the First Amendment and she hopes the letters make officials award of that.
