ACLU says Congressman Drew Ferguson illegally blocked people on Facebook

The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia sent a letter “threatening legal action” to U.S. Rep. Drew Ferguson, R-West Point, after the group says he illegally blocked people from commenting on his official Facebook page and deleted their posts, according to a release.

Ferguson represents Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District, which comprises a small part of north Columbus, as well as Harris County, Thomaston, LaGrange, West Point, Carrollton and other cities in east Georgia.

Ferguson responded to the letter acknowledging that some accounts had been blocked “inadvertently” and said the situation had been remedied by staff members and access had been restored. “It is never my intention to silence the voices of my constituents, and I appreciate you alerting me to this issue,” he wrote in the letter.

The ACLU is also threatening legal action against two sheriffs and a police department, and sent letters to the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office, Worth County Sheriff’s Office, Henry County Police Department and to Ferguson.
