Miers's late '80s gay rights stance fleshed out

by Jeremy Hooper

   It is being reported that newly minted Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers filled out a questionnaire in 1989 in which she supported equal rights for gays and lesbians, but did not support the repeal of the Bowers Texas sodomy law. (The gay sex-criminalizing piece of poo which is now defunct, due to Supreme Court action)

Relatedly, through our own thorough research of Miers circa '89, we've learned that Ms. M found the "Arsenio Hall Show" to be "fresh and funky," supported Kelly Kapowski ending up with Zach, not Slater, and was completely unaware that Milli Vanilli was faking it.

Let the debate begin.
