MORE SWATTING SUPPORT: Marchant Stands for Free Speech and with Conservative Bloggers Under Attack. “Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) today issued a statement in strong support of free speech and conservative bloggers who are being targeted in dangerous ‘SWAT-tings’ and asked Attorney General Holder to investigate these matters to see if federal laws have been violated by the perpetrators.”

He joins Sen. Saxby Chambliss, whose story is now front-paged on Drudge.

Plus, in a related development the ACLJ is coming to the defense of threatened bloggers. “Top conservative blogger Ali Akbar and the organization National Bloggers Club are facing threats and intimidation tactics by those who oppose their viewpoint. Today Akbar and the National Bloggers Club got some much-needed good news: their free-speech rights will be defended by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). . . . The ACLJ will aggressively defend the constitutionally protected free speech rights of Akbar and his organization.”

See, I’ve warned people before that threatening bloggers is not the way to maintain a low profile.
