No sense of irony?

This is supposedly mentioned in Dick Morris's new book and makes you wonder if there is no sense of irony at the ACLU:
Where an individual director disagrees with a Board position on matters of civil
liberties policy, the director should refrain from publicly highlighting the fact of such disagreement, particularly where the purpose or principal effect of such publicity is to call into question the integrity of the process in arriving at the Board’s decision. An ACLU director is not prohibited, however, from publicly advocating a substantive policy position that is different from a policy adopted by the Board. In other words, a director may publicly disagree with an ACLU policy position, but may not criticize the ACLU Board or staff. In any such public statement, moreover, the director should make clear that he or she does not purport to speak on behalf of the ACLU (see policy #528), and should never report which other Board members hold which position on the matter. Directors should remember that there is always a material prospect that public airing of the disagreement will affect the ACLU adversely in terms of public support and fundraising.

I found it at the ACLU by Googling "aclu bylaws."

The Google link was titled "[PDF] Do not forward. For internal use only."

Oops.

Comments:
Interesting.... why would the ACLU be so secretive about their bylaws?
