The Roll Call article describes, in detail, the encounter that resulted in Craig's arrest. I had no idea there was an entire 'code' for seeking a bathroom encounter. But it appears that Larry Craig did. He actually plead guilty to lewd conduct and paid a fine. He remains on probation in the State of Minnesota.
Mike Rogers, at Blogactive.com deserves a shout out here. He reported on Senator Craig's sexuality last year on his website. Although Craig and his office denied Mike's claim, it appears, in the end, that Mike was right and the Republican was a liar. Should we really be surprised?
I've just received a pathetic statement from Senator Craig's office:
Senator Larry Craig stated, "At the time of this incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions. I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct.
"I should have had the advice of counsel in resolving this matter. In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously."
Doesn't it sound like a teenager caught doing something wrong? I really can't believe that a United States Senator is playing victim to the justice system. What is even more disturbing is that he still isn't coming to terms with his homosexuality.
