Bush Would Make Alito a Legal ALIEN!

Justice Alito, was the lone dissenter in a case that struck DOWN a law requiring women seeking abortions to inform their husbands. While I am against abortion, a women's body is her body alone, and a husband's decision on such a matter in the context of legal abortion is not appropriate. This appears to be a perspective of spousal ownership when they refuse to go against Roe versus Wade, yet would require a woman to get husband consent for abortion.

Another concern is Justice Alito's willingness to be liberal with Muslim men in the police force at the same time he holds these other conservative views. He voted to allow them to wear beards while serving as police officers when the police department policy was against it. Coincidentally, Pat Robertson even refers to the 911 terrorists as "bearded men."

Alito is out!

Democratic investigators on the Judiciary Committee are looking into at least two other matters in which, they say, Judge Alito appears to have failed to keep promises to disqualify himself.

One case, reported this month by Newsday, involved a suit against Smith Barney, another brokerage firm that handled some of Judge Alito's investments.

In another case, not previously reported, Judge Alito took part in a 1995 decision of the full court of appeals involving Midatlantic National Bank, which was represented by a law firm in which his sister, Rosemary, was a partner.

In the 1990 questionnaire, when his sister was with a different law firm, Judge Alito pledged to disqualify himself from any case involving that firm.

Democrats said the issue was not whether Judge Alito had a conflict, but whether he had kept his promise and had taken all precautions to prevent a conflict.

Mr. Schmidt, the White House spokesman, said that Bush administration officials knew of both cases and that neither posed a conflict.

Judge Alito, Mr. Schmidt said, "had no ethical obligation to recuse himself from a case involving his sister's firm unless his sister represented a party in the proceeding."
