The ACLJ’s Influence Growing

The Chicago Tribune profiles Jay Sekulow and his work at Pat Robertson’s Amercian Center for Law and Justice, highlighting its $35 million budget, staff of 130, and Sekulow’s role in picking and supporting President Bush’s judicial nominees. More importantly, it reports that the ACLJ is focusing its efforts on winning lower-profile but no less influential cases: “You really don’t see the pro-life protests on the courthouse square or in front of the abortion clinic. Now it’s more these kinds of cases. Nuanced. There’s federal legislation involved in this. There’s state legislation. There’s state regulatory issues. It’s Title VII. So it’s much more nuanced.”
