Press Briefing by Ari Fleischer, June 26, 2003:
QUESTION: And on the Texas sodomy case, does the President believe that gay men have the legal right to have sexual relations in the privacy of their own home?
MR. FLEISCHER: I think on this decision, the administration did not file a brief in this case, unlike in the Michigan case. And this is now a state matter.
QUESTION: So he has no position on this?
MR. FLEISCHER: It’s just as I indicated, the administration did not file a brief on this — as, I think, you know.
