(Washington, DC) – "Log Cabin looks forward to a thorough and thoughtful review of Judge Samuel Alito's nomination to the United States Supreme Court. As a replacement to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the person who fills this vacancy will have a powerful affect on the balance of the Court and on the future of basic fairness for LGBT Americans. Judge Alito has a long track record from his 15 years on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. Log Cabin will carefully study this record along with his writings and his testimony during confirmation hearings particularly as they relate to questions of basic fairness for gay and lesbian Americans. It is incumbent upon the Senate Judiciary Committee to insure that this confirmation process is fair and dignified. It is also critical for members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the entire Senate to diligently question Judge Alito about where he stands on critical issues to LGBT Americans."
