Sandra Day O’Connor At The Alfalfa Club Dinner
Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor apparently got in a real zinger at last weekend’s Alfalfa Club dinner:
Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor made a joke about the GOP candidates Saturday that reportedly drew much laughter.
At the black-tie steak-and-lobster Alfalfa Club dinner Saturday among political and business elites in Washington, she said that of two GOP presidential candidates, “one is a practicing polygamist, and he’s not even the Mormon,” according to an Associated Press report. The remark appeared to be a comparison between Romney’s Mormon faith (which no longer allows polygamy) and thrice-married Newt Gingrich. The dinner is closed to the press.
