Alito Has Old Friends At FOX

Reported by Deborah - January 9, 2006

John Ashcroft and Ken Mehlman were on hand today on Big Story endorsing Samuel Alito but by far the most interesting information came from Andrew Napolitano, Fox Legal Analyst and regular on the show. Melanie reported that Napolitano and Alito are old friends but the details of that history were revealed by Napolitano today. 1/9/05

Napolitano revealed that he and Alito were members of Concerned Alumni of Princeton. Alito's membership in this ultra conservative club concerns Democrats because of it's very extreme positions.

Napolitano was rather vague about the activities of this club giving one example of it's activism. Napolitano claimed that they wanted the ROTC returned to Princeton after it was "firebombed" and forced to leave adding that he and Alito were in the ROTC.

Gibson mentioned that Alito's membership was considered by some to be a "sign of extreme conservatism". Napolitano disagreed describing the club as "mainstream conservative" To prove his point, he revealed that David Asman and Laura Inghraham, frequent Fox guest, were also members adding that the club was "agressive but perfectly mainstream".

comment: This "mainstream conservative" organization is considered so extreme that even Bill Frist disapproved and Alito has claimed not to remember his membership according to The Village Voice.
Knowing that Napolitano, Asman and Ingraham were all members sure didn't make me feel any better about Alito or Princeton University.
