ACLU backs Senator Craig

...into a corner, that is.

Republican Senator Larry Craig found a friend in a most unlikely place (but then again, he's quite used to that):
Yesterday, the ACLU filed a brief supporting Craig. It cited a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago that found that people who have sex in closed stalls in public restrooms "have a reasonable expectation of privacy."


The ACLU argued that even if Craig was inviting the officer to have sex, his actions wouldn't be illegal.

So what they're saying, is that even if Senator Craig WAS looking for some random, anonymous, hot guy-on-guy action in an airport men's room stall (as the Senator basically admitted to in his guilty plea), it's his God-given RIGHT to do so as an American!

And not just ANY American, but a really really really closeted GAY American Senator!

It's wonderful that the ACLU is here for all of us, regardless of our race, creed, political, or sexual affiliation. Senator Craig has indeed found a special friend.

With support like that, who needs enemies?
