South Carolina Lawsuit NPR's Adam Hochberg reports that South Carolina's attorney general is suing the NAACP over the civil rights organization's latest tactic in the long-standing fight over the Confederate Battle Flag. The NAACP has been picketing tourist information centers on interstates and urging a tourist boycott of the state. The state attorney general claims the demonstrations are a threat to public safety. The attorney general is also running for the GOP nomination for governor. Some say the lawsuit is politically motivated.
