Shhhh! Leave Senator Craig Alone. He Needs His Privacy.

You know, I love the ACLU.  I really do.  I know a lot of raving right-wingers who consider the ACLU to be Satan-on-Earth.  They don’t understand that while some of the cases the ACLU takes on may curb some religious freedoms, they also take on around 30 cases a year defending religious freedoms and liberties.  Defending. 

But this.

An expectation of privacy?

The ACLU filed a brief Tuesday 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.”

That means the state cannot prove Craig was inviting an undercover officer to have sex in public, the ACLU wrote.

  1. The ACLU takes on so many strange cases. But this one is definitely a stretch. I mean, it’s called a public restroom, not a private one. When there’s about a foot of space between the floor and the divider, you don’t have privacy.

  2. I believe public restrooms should have a certain expectancy for a certain level of privacy – to pee and take a dump! That is why they place stalls and walls between the sit down toilets. The issue is, is this a place where people have the right to expect privacy to have sex, do drugs, write humorous limericks on the walls etc. The answer is “no.”

  3. Hello,

    If you are linked to my blog “Journal of a Battling Christian” it use to have the address of “gaychristianjournal” which has morphed since its inception. I finally figured out how to change the blog address so it is now the following:

    You will need to change the link in your blog roll. Please forgive the inconvenience.

  4. Rik, I’m embarassed. I thought I’d had your blog up there in the blogroll, but I didn’t. Please forgive. I’ve corrected it and hope to drive more traffic your direction.
