Spitzer to file amicus supporting UMichigan
Our own DavidNYC chimes in with this excellent post over at the Political State Report.
The short of it is that NY attorney general (and apparent Pataki heir) will file an amicus brief supporting U Michigan's affirmative action policy. Spitzer (who's a rock star) claims he's representing the state's official position, though it's apparantly news to Pataki.
But this is where it gets interesting:
While Pataki has long bucked the national GOP - and assured his popularity with a broad cross-section of New Yorkers - with his left-leaning stands on a number of issues, he has generally staked out a fairly murky middle ground on affirmative action.Posted January 23, 2003 09:27 PM | Comments (21)
