Greenie Newspaper Banned

We read:

"The American Civil Liberties Union and a national libertarian group filed suit in a Tallahassee federal court this morning on behalf of a Wakulla County businesswoman who claims she was forced by the Florida Elections Commission to halt publication of her small-town newspaper....

The FEC investigated Hanway after a Panacea resident complained in 2004 that the four-page broadsheet, which includes book reviews, nature photographs, and community news, was a political arm of "anti-growth" candidates."


The Florida authorities must not have heard of the freedom of the press enshrined in the First Amendment.
