When are Whistleblowers bad in the left's view?

When they are ACLU members ratting out the the ACLU! NRO's The Corner tells us of "The delightful saga of the ACLU's efforts to place a gag order on its own board members continues."

According to the New York Times:

A lawyer in the New York state attorney general's office informally warned the American Civil Liberties Union that his office had concerns about proposed standards that would limit the group's board members from speaking publicly about policies and internal operations, according to three board members


The Corner's John Miller points out that:
One of these "three board members" is Wendy Kaminer. The other two "were granted anonymity because they were afraid to speak publicly given the pending proposals." They aren't afraid of the state attorney general's office, but of the ACLU itself.
