Transcript MARCH 23, 1984 / THE Star 9 Gay Groups Oppose Meese as Nominee for Attorney General In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 5th, the National Gay Task Force (NGTF) joined with a coalition of organizations from the civil rights community in opposing the nomination of Edwin Meese as Attorney General of the United States. Virginia M. Apuzzo, executive director of NGTF, declared in her statement to the committee that Meese had failed "the sim- Gay Rights Bill Vetoed in California California Governor George Deukmejian vetoed the gay rights bill which would have put an end to job discrimination against gays in California. After heavy lobbying by both sides and letters and telephone calls to Deukmejian, he thought the bill would not reflect the true wishes of California's citizens. He also thought that there wasn't enough proof that gays were being discriminated against to justify the statute. Liberace Wins Big Hunk of Palimony Suit LOS ANGELES (IGNA)—A major portion of a homosexual palimony suit by a young dancer against entertainer Liberace has been thrown out of court. Superior Court Judge Ricardo Torres dismissed a portion of the suit that claimed that Liberace had promised to support Scott Thorson, 24, in exchange for sexual services. Torres ruled that contracts for sex are illegal and not enforceable because they constitute prostitution. Thorson can still pursue his civil breach-of-con tract suit against Liberace, 64, on claims that the pianist promised in 1976 that he would pay Thorson up to $30,000 a year as well as half-interest in several properties in exchange for services as a chauffeur, bodyguard and secretary. Liberace had denied any contract existed between him and Thorson, who once worked in the flamboyant's entertainer's Las Vegas shows.

Apuzzo raised a series of issues of concern to the gay/lesbian community regarding the Justice Department. Of primary importance, she said, is that the Attorney General must "firmly believe that all individuals and institutions should obey civil rights laws without exception." The Reagan Administration's position in the Bob Jones case, in which it argued unsuccessfully that a religious institution could discriminate on the basis of race, raised doubts about such a commitment. Apuzzo said. "(T)he very same argument- s.. .are being used by Georgetown University...and the Salvation Army...to seek exemption from local requirements that they not discriminate against gay men and lesbians if they wish to receive public funds. If the civil rights laws.. .are to have any meaning, we cannot allow them to be undermined by granting wholesale exceptions along the way." Among other issues cited by Apuzzo were the failure ofthe Justice Department to consider antigay/lesbian violence as a civil rights violation; past infiltration and surveillance of gay and lesbian organizations by the FBI, a matter of concern given Meese's suport of such activities against antiwar groups as district attorney in Alameda County, Calif.; attempts to weaken the Freedom of Information Act by the Reagan Administration; the Justice Department's role in excluding gay men and lesbians, among others, under existing immigration laws; and the Justice Department's pending review of security clearance procedures that currently define gay men and lesbians as security risks, the only minority group to be singled out in that manner.
