ACLU & Larry Craig
Larry Craig has an unlikely ally in the ACLU.
Sen. Larry E. Craig got an ally Monday in his fight to withdraw his guilty plea in a restroom sex sting. The American Civil Liberties Union submitted a brief to a Minnesota court arguing the Idaho Republican’s arrest was likely unconstitutional.
Anthony Romero, the ACLU’s executive director, argued that police sting operations sometimes trap innocent people. He said police must show that sex was to occur in public, not just that someone was soliciting sex.
Social conservatives have contempt for gays, sex and the ALCU. This is a perfect storm. Jerry Falwell would be going mad if was still alive.
