Abrams accuses critics of opposing free speech
School board member Steve Abrams is defending the MCPS decision to grant credit to students who demonstrate under the auspices of an illegal-immigrant advocacy group.
He implies that critics oppose freedom of speech.
"The last time I checked, the First Amendment is not a right to question what the speech is," Abrams says in the Washington Post. "I'm sure if students were participating in a tax cap rally, these same people would not be objecting to that."
Abrams is a Republican who is seeking this year to be elected Comptroller of the state of Maryland.
