This is the same Senator who wanted to waste a ton of taxpayer money on a full blown Congressional investigation on having the NE Patriots and NFL to explain why it allegedly destroyed evidence from an alleged cheating scandal during the 2007 Super Bowl. Really makes one wonder if these guys in Wash DC are just out to get on the 6:00 news to justify their continued positions. It's a private swim club Senator! They can legally say who can use their facilities and who can't apart from the octopus-like grasp of the federal bureaucracy.

You need to check the law, you moron! The club accepts $ for rentals, etc., so it is subject to the laws regarding discrimination. And, there are some Black members of that club that are perturbed about the racist pigs that complained. I hope the club goes out of business after they are made to pay for this racist attitude.

You need to check the laws concerning PRIVATE Corporations and PRIVATE property! Civil rights and other laws do NOT apply to private institutions that are NOT tax funded. To use your logic if I were having a private party at my house and a couple people crashed the same wanting to drink my booze and eat my food then I would have no recourse to kick them out. If this were a public taxpayer funded pool facility it's a whole other story, but it ain't. it's a private club and they can allow or deny or ask whomever they want to leave as they see fit.
