Happy Constitution Day! Read more about our Constitution and the "Second Founding."

We asked you to contact your Senators to tell them to vote to confirm Michelle Friedland to a seat on the Ninth Circuit that’s been declared a judicial emergency.  

On Monday, April 28, the Senate confirmed Ms. Friedland by a narrow, 51-40 vote.  Thank you for your great work!  

2013 was a year that showed us Washington at its worst. But it also showed us Constitutional Progressives at their best. Thank you for your hard work this year. We have a great deal to be proud of, and a great deal to prepare for.

Moments ago, the U.S. Senate confirmed Patricia Ann Millett to a judgeship on the all-important U.S Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.  To say this was a “hard-fought” confirmation would be a major understatement, and I want to thank you for all of your help in this fight.

WATCH: Tea Party vs. the Constitution: ObamaCare Edition

Monday, April 30, 2012

Constitutional Accountability Center interviewed several tea partiers in front of the Supreme Court during oral arguments in the Obamacare cases in March 2012. Many of them feel strongly that the law is unconstitutional, and many of them proved that they have absolutely no idea about what the Constitution actually says.

The Heritage Foundation Takes on the Tea Party as the CPAC Curtain Rises

Thursday, February 9, 2012

As the constitutional claims of the tea party have become more and more extreme, we here at the Constitutional Accountability Center have been troubled by the lack of push-back from serious conservatives to some of these embarrassingly wild and unfounded claims. This failure of adult supervision has allowed claims that should truly remain on the constitutional fringe to flourish in conservative legislatures around the country.
