Failed Democrat Pol Sues
Critics Over Election Loss
The Judge hearing the case is a former president and director of the Planned Parenthood Association of Cincinnati. As conflicts of interest go this one is outrageous.

When voters in Ohio's 1st Congressional District threw Democrat Steve Driehaus out of office after only one term, he did not bow out gracefully. No, he decided to get even. So he did what anyone does in today's culture: he sued somebody.
Charging that its activities contributed to his defeat and thus to his "loss of livelihood," Driehaus is suing the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life candidates for Congress and which has been one of the leading and most effective organizations involved in the fight to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
Appointed by Barack Obama, Judge Black, the presiding Judge is neither recusing himself or ending the farce. The American court system thus finds itself taking sides in a political discussion and attempting to end the free speech rights of those on one side of the argument.
Who is surprised. When the courts embraced the abusive violation of equal rights called 'affirmative action', it stopped being a system of justice and became a political farce. Nothing in the intervening years has changed its arrogant belief that justice is whatever the majority of judges say it is. The people have no rights.
