Alito recollects

leave a comment »

Now I believe Alito to be a very smart, capable lawyer, which requires an excellent, and perhaps even prodigious, memory.

Going back a fair while, Alito applied for a job in the Reagan administration. In so doing he highlighted his membership of the Concerned Alumni of Princeton. This organisation was well-known for fighting integration of women and minorities on campus, both during his time at Princeton and when he made his job application.

In what appears to be a convenient lapse of memory, Alito said last month, “I have no recollection of being a member or attending meetings.”

Ah. “I have no recollection.” It is unimpeachable, providing more evidence of lawyerly skills.

See The Nation.
