Accordingly to credible but as-yet unofficial reports, ACLU lobbyist Larry Frankel has died in D.C. Larry had served as both Executive Director and Legislative Director for the ACLU of Pennsylvania for many years before becoming the State Legislative Counsel for ACLU National.
This story has not appeared on any news sites yet, but was first posted last night by Pennsylvania State Representative Mark B. Cohen at Young Philly Politics. Because it has been up so long without being corrected, I assume the news is true. According to Cohen, the circumstances of Larry's death are still being investigated and a cause has not been determined.
Larry was a great fighter for civil liberties. This is a tragedy and a real loss for everyone who loves freedom.
