No, you are wrong. Please post your supporting link for this claim. I gave you the info right from the ACLU website. What is YOUR proof? You are confusing the Government Legal Service Agency or group or commission or what ever with the ACLU. Different groups.

Unless you are claiming that because the cost of the Damages awarded to a Plaintiff are used to cover the ACLU costs for representing them as "Taxpayer money"? Sorry those costs are paid no matter WHO represents the winner. Claiming that as "Taxpayer money" going to the ACLU is incredibly, incredibility intellectually dishonest. EVEN if the Congress passed a law banning such awards to the ACLU it would be an Unconstitutional imposition of Congressional Authority on the Judiciary. Sorry but you are just wrong all the way around on this.

Again I say: DO NOT BELIEVE anything you read on the ACLU web site their founder was an anti-American Communist who founded the ACLU to covertly destroy the United States, and they are doing a good job of it.

The LAW IS: "USC section 1988 fees (from tax money) are awarded to the ACLU in Establishment Clause cases," which means any suit the ACLU brings period.

Title 42, Chapter 21, Subchapter I, Section 1988 is the mother’s milk of the United States Code for the ACLU. It authorizes the payment of attorney’s fees in cases involving civil rights. Sounds harmless enough, right? Sorry, bucko, it turns out that you are paying the ACLU’s invoice every time they launch another lawsuit. Are you happy to pay the ACLU $700,000 to kick the Boy Scouts out of a San Diego park, $500,000 to get those awful ten commandments out of Judge Roy Moore’s courthouse, and millions to prosecute every creche and cross and star of David on public property

Or you can search the USC.
