DOJ Weaponizes a Subpoena?
Eagle Forum of Alabama has found itself at the receiving end of a nasty DOJ subpoena after supporting an anti-transgender bill.
From 1819 News. Wednesday, Eagle Forum of Alabama revealed the Department of Justice issued an August 9 subpoena “demanding all information related to the non-profit’s legislative activities promoting the Alabama Vulnerable Child Compassion And Protection Act (VCAP) since 2017.”
The VCAP bill, passed by the Alabama Legislature earlier this year, was sponsored by State Sen. Shay Shelnutt (R-Trussville) and State Rep. Wes Allen (R-Troy). The law protects minors from gender-altering medical procedures and drugs.
Immediately after the legislation was signed by Gov. Kay Ivey, then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki threatened Alabama officials by saying they were being “put on notice” by the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services and vowing President Joe Biden would hold them accountable.
In May, U.S. Judge for the Northern District of Alabama Liles Burke issued a preliminary injunction to stop Alabama from enforcing the ban while a court challenge goes forward.
Now, Eagle Forum of Alabama is squarely in the middle of the legal battle instigated by the Biden Justice Department. …
Eagle Forum of Alabama executive director Becky Gerritson defended her group’s advocacy promoting the VCAP legislation.
“After hearing from citizens in Alabama, including parents, doctors, lawyers, and guidance counselors, about their concerns for otherwise healthy children who want to transition to the opposite sex, we decided to undertake the protection of these vulnerable children and have done so publicly and ardently,” Gerritson said in a release. “Eagle Forum of Alabama operates primarily by volunteer Alabama citizens. The right to engage in these activities, free of compulsion and harassment, must be preserved.” …
