Kagan's Friends: She's Not Gay

Kagan's Friends: She's Not Gay

Kagan_1's Ben Smith has talked to some of Elena Kagan's best friends, and they've all told him the Supreme Court nominee isn't gay.

"I've known her for most of her adult life and I know she's straight," Kagan's law school roommate and close friend Sarah Walzer told Smith. "She dated men when we were in law school, we talked about men -- who in our class was cute, who she would like to date, all of those things. She definitely dated when she was in D.C. after law school, when she was in Chicago -- and she just didn't find the right person."

The subject of Kagan's sexual orientation has been a topic of conversation and of news reports since her name was first floated as a possible nominee. White House officials, however, have called any rumor that she's a lesbian "false charges."

Smith reports that Kagan's friends' "desire to 'out' her as straight has been complicated by their hope to avoid offending gay friends by implying there would be any problem if she were a lesbian."
