Judge Samuel Alito should not be confirmed to join the Supreme Court because he lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his membership in a Princeton Club that advocated a return to the "good old days" when Princeton was all male and all white.
He bragged about his membership in that club on an application for a position in the Reagan White House in 1985. Under oath, he claims that he knows nothing about that club today or his membership in it. He is either too absent-minded, too stupid or too deceitful to serve on the highest court in the land.
