ACLU sues Washington metro for barring ‘political’ ads, including one hailing the 1st Amendment: The American Civil Liberties Union said Wednesday that it is suing the Washington, D.C., metro system for rejecting as too “political’  four municipal transit ads on birth control, alt-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos, vegans and even one by the ACLU itself featuring the First Amendment in English, Spanish and Arabic.
