A few weeks back, a story spread around the news about how the state of Kentucky had started blocking access to a political blog critical of the governor of Kentucky from state computers (while still allowing access to plenty of other sites). Greg Beck, from Public Citizen, has written in to let us know that his organization has now filed a lawsuit against the state, claiming it violates the First Amendment. The lawsuit notes that the state can ban certain activities, but cannot selectively pick and choose what reading material is allowed based on content.
