sotomayor: the racist defender

you won't see hannity, newt, or rush trumpeting this about sonia sotomayor:
Judge Sotomayor's dissent in Pappas v. Giuliani, 290 F.3d 143:

The plaintiff, Pappas, was fired by the NYPD when it was discovered that Pappas had regularly (but anonymously and on his own private time) distributed racist and anti-semitic pamphlets of the David Duke variety.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals voted to affirm the NYPD's actions but Justice Sotomayor dissented on the grounds that Pappas's first amendment rights were not vitiated merely because he had unpopular views.
