Re: Corporate vote-buying OK, satire not OK (fwd)

 A Europe-based Web site claiming to buy and sell votes for the U.S.
 presidential election apparently closed Wednesday under pressure
 from Chicago election officials.
 But the American Civil Liberties Union said it would fight to keep
 vote-auction.com on the Internet, saying the Web site was constitutionally
 protected under the First Amendment.
 The ACLU began its fight to keep the site alive by getting the case
 transferred out of Cook County Circuit Court and into federal court.

ACLU geht übrigens ebenfalls gegen die Schließung einer Site vor,
auf der (im Ernst) Stimmen getauscht bzw. darüber diskutiert werden
konnte (votexchange.com).

Alles Gute,
