Submission + - Congressman Demands Parody Website Investigation (

waldoj writes: First amendment group the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression has handed out their always-amusing Muzzle Awards on the occasion of Jefferson's birthday, and the ten "winners" constitute a worst-of list of free speech violators in the past year. Of most interest to Slashdotters is likely the top spot, which went to Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), a hero of the far left, who tried to get the U.S. Attorney General to open an investigation to determine who set up a website parodying his own website. Also of note is Southwestern College prohibiting free speech on campus except for on their "free-speech patio" and Alabama barring the sale of a California wine with a painting of a nymph on the label.
