Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) has faced plenty of ridicule for the past 15 months following accusations that he solicited sex from a toilet stall in a Minneapolis airport.
The passage of time, a presidential campaign, and the perennially unfolding Lindsay Lohan saga should have made this scandal disappear long ago. But Craig's shame is still making headlines, thanks to the efforts of one very powerful individual…
Lawyers for U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho asked a Minnesota Court on Wednesday to void the guilty plea he made following his arrest last year in a men's toilet sex-sting operation…
Craig was arrested at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on June 11, 2007, after an undercover police officer said the lawmaker kept looking through a crack in the door, sat down in a stall next to him and used hand and foot signals to indicate he was soliciting sex.
Why is Craig still dragging this out in court? His Senate career in its final months and it's not like there's a lawmaking "seniors tour" he could be banned from. If anything, he should take a page from fellow celebrity convict O.J. "If I Did It" Simpson and write a book where he explains what it might be like if he actually was scoring anonymous toilet sex with business travelers.
It could be like a Penthouse Forum for closeted gay federal lawmakers.
Don't laugh. According to former Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), that's a bigger demographic than you think.
