Supreme Court Justice Bradley Apologizes for Opinion Pieces
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley is apologizing for anti-gay opinion pieces she wrote when a college student 24 years ago.
The liberal group One Wisconsin Now on Monday revealed a college newspaper column and letters to the editor Bradley wrote when a student at Marquette University in 1992.
In one, Bradley compares homosexuals with drug addicts, saying they "essentially kill themselves and others through their own behavior."
In other, reacting to the election of Bill Clinton as president, she describes him as "queer-loving" and says his victory "proves that the majority of voters are either totally stupid or entirely evil."
Bradley says in a statement she is "frankly embarrassed at the content and tone of what I wrote those many years ago."
