An activist group formed to combat the Obama administration's economic and health care agenda has agreed to change its name and forfeit its web address after it was sued by a non-partisan government watchdog whose name it ripped off.
The Chicago-based Better Government Association, founded in 1923 as a check on Al Capone's political influence, filed for a temporary restraining order in federal court Monday against a newly-formed and decidedly partisan Akron, Ohio group operating under the same name. A hearing scheduled for Thursday in Chicago was canceled at the last minute after attorneys for the new BGA agreed to a permanent injunction.
By Thursday evening, the Akron BGA's web site announced that the group had re-branded itself the U.S. Citizens Association and directs visitors to its new site.

Oh goody...more right wing sewage to wade through. Funny part--for every finger those wing-bats point at Dems, three more point right back at them! :) Isn't this the sort of organization the Re-pubes have been crying about on the other side of the fence--now they have to admit that not only do they have one, it was operating under a stolen (surprise, surprise--cheating again) name. LOL! Thanks for sharing!
