Conservative Sen. Larry Craig got support from an unexpected source on Monday. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a brief in court saying the lawmaker’s bathroom bust was likely unconstitutional.
The ACLU urged a Minnesota District Court to let Craig withdraw his guilty plea.
“Sen. Craig has not always been a great friend of civil liberties, but you shouldn’t have to endorse the civil liberties of others to keep your own,” said ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, alluding to Craig’s history of voting against gay rights.
