The ACLU, which contends the airport men’s room sting operation that ensnared the Idaho senator and 40 others was unconstitutional, wrote to the Court of Appeals, “The free expression concerns that this case presents are of significant interest not only to Appellant but also to every individual who risks arrest, charge, and/or prosecution for inviting another individual to have sex.” Read my full story here at spokesmanreview.com.
