Please attribute the following statement to the ACLU of California affiliates in regards to recent campaign ads opposing Tony Thurmond for California Superintendent of Public Instruction:

The ads prominently feature the name of the ACLU in a way that can be misconstrued as an endorsement. The ACLU of California affiliates neither endorse nor oppose candidates for office. The ACLU did not create these ads.
