Skip to comments.Craig entitled to his privacy, ACLU argues

In an effort to help Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing that people who have sex in public bathrooms have an expectation of privacy.
Craig is asking the Minnesota Court of Appeals to let him withdraw his guilty plea from a bathroom sex sting at the Minneapolis airport. The ACLU on Tuesday filed a brief supporting the Idaho Republican.
The ACLU wrote that a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago found that people who have sex in closed stalls in public restrooms "have a reasonable expectation of privacy."

The pantyman Craig has spoken./Just Asking - seoul62......
public = private?
How could the ACLU pass up an opportunity to embarass the GOP?
public = private?
According to the ACLU, yes.
IF SO, then the mile high club should be legal, no?
I expect Mr. Craig’s petition would have a significantly greater chance of success WITHOUT this idiotic amicus brief.
yeah right - privacy - in a place where there are grunts interrupted by loud wet explosive bursts of smelly gas
woohoo let’s go! (mighty cramped in that bathroom, tho)
Reasonable expectation of privacy in a public bathroom? Only to a very limited extent; that is that you can expect no more than not having someone watch what you’re doing, maybe.
There’s clearly something about *public* bathroom that these lawyer types don’t get.
They have no clue what idiots they are making of themselves in the eyes of the public.
Sex is more important than the GOP as so many of the people it watches out for participate in such ludeness...
Yeah...privacy to go pee for a few minutes, not to have sex for 20! I can't believe the ACLU doesn't have better things to do.
Nothing says love like the sweet sweet smell of last nights double bean burrito...
Hmmm, well I guess that’s one stance on the subject...
yeah does wonders for the libido
Only because there is a door on the public stall, that gives some credence to the expectation of privacy. Not defending this idiot in anyway, but that is their argument.
How incredibly embarrassing to have someone with an “R” next to his name, being aligned with the ACLU!!!!
Amicus brief is the life blood of the ACLU. In their case, amicus brief is the first stage in their intimidation practices (usually enough).
Aside from the fact that it is called a public restroom and that the purpose of providing the room is not public sex (then it would be called a public sex room). Perhaps the ACLU who, I believe, has joined the Muslim groups in demanding foot washing facilities and prayer rooms, will sue the various airports, train stations, hotels, malls, for public buggering rooms.
Wonder what would happen if one of the witnesses took the stand, then crouched down behind it and proceeded to either play with himself or take a dump, while yelling “Can’t a guy get any PRIVACY here?!”
OK, granted that would be pretty sick and I know what would happen, but it would strongly and quite graphically make a point.
They don’t oppose the GOP. They support perversion, where ever it appears.
