Samuel Alito: Friend of gays, enemy of the Patriot Act
Posted by neros_fiddle at 3:20 PM
Well, at least he was 34 years ago.

As a senior at Princeton University, Samuel A. Alito Jr. chaired an undergraduate task force that recommended the decriminalization of sodomy, accused the CIA and the FBI of invading the privacy of citizens, and said discrimination against gays in hiring "should be forbidden."

That was a long time ago, and he could easily back off of those positions now if he chooses. Should be interesting.

The whole paper is available online.
