FL Rep. Sued For Blocking Constituent On Social Media

A Florida lawmaker is being sued for blocking one of his constituents on social media.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the suit on Tuesday against state Represenative Chuck Clemons, a Republican who represents a North Florida district.

The lawsuit accuses Clemons of discrimination for excluding a Gainesville man from otherwise publicly accessibly social media accounts.

Clemons says he has the right to block anyone he wants.

The ACLU says Morgan Attwood was blocked on Twitter and Facebook accounts after sending a tweet to Clemons asking why he voted against taking up a bill that would ban assault-style weapons.
