The Federalist Society vs. the ACS

by Hans A. von Spakovsky

For anyone who wants to know the difference between the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society (the copycat organization set up by the Left to try to compete with the Federalists), last week’s ACS convention provides a prime demonstration.

At the gala dinner at the ACS convention last Thursday, members received con-law advice from former Saturday Night Live comedian Al Franken, who attacked the Court for its supposedly “distorted” constitutional doctrine.
