Cornyn to Kagan: You Provided "Separate But Equal" Access to the Military at Harvard

This afternoon, Sen. John Cornyn intensified his criticism of Elena Kagan's decision to deny the military access to the office of career services at Harvard Law School. Cornyn suggested that Kagan's policy was to "stigmatize" the military and give it "separate but equal" access to students at Harvard. Watch the video:
Yesterday Senator Jeff Sessions asked Kagan why she discriminated against the military instead of complaining to Congress for passing the law regarding gays in the military: "Isn’t it a fact that the policy was not a military policy, but a law passed by the United States Congress? ... Why wouldn't you complain to Congress and not to the dutiful men and women who put their lives on the line for America every day?"
Kagan dodged the question.
