Alito: People For the American Way report

People for the American Way has issued a report on many of Judge Alito's decisions. There are only two cases in the report dealing with elections:

Rappa v. New Castle County, 18 F.3d 1043 (3d Cir. 1994) -- at the bottom of page 18

Patriot Party v. Allegheny County Dep’t of Elections, 1998 U.S. App. LEXIS 12688 (3d Cir. 1998), aff’d en banc, 174 F.3d 305 (3d Cir. 1999) -- on page 19

As it happens I know something about these cases.
Rappa is a free speech victory. It found a Delaware sign ordinance unconstitutional.
Patriot Party was a victory for fusion, later eclipsed by Twin Cities. It is cited in Stewart v Taylor.
