Alito on Abortion (Again)
The Washington Post is reporting that SCOUTS nominee Samuel Alito to wrote, in a 1985 job application to then-Attorney General Edwin I. Meuse III, that he was "particularly proud" of his contributions to cases in which the Reagan administration had argued before the Supreme Court that "racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." At the time of the application, Alito to was an assistant in the Office of the Solicitor General. He got the job.
Although we can expect more and more (and more again) "Alito on abortion" reports, the definitive statement was posted here on November 3.
