Larry Craig blames the local newspaper

Republican Idaho U.S. Senator Larry Craig just held a press conference to deny that is gay. He further said that he panicked and made a bad decision to plead guilty to a criminal charge of lewd conduct. In fact, he blames it on the pressure he felt because of an investigation by the local newspaper, Idaho Statesman, into rumors about his sexuality.

He also revealed in the press conference that he didn't tell his family, friends, or staff about the charge. Just now on MSNBC, Ana Marie Cox of Time.com, just revealed that Senator Craig actually returned to Minneapolis a month after the incident to plead guilty to the charge. It is not the 'heat of the moment' plea that Craig wants us to think it is.

In the end, this is likely about another conservative hypocrite. He has been caught red-handed by a society which he has worked for decades to foster. That society is one in which LGBT people are treated separately and unequally under the law. The discrimination that exists because of people like Larry Craig is the very circumstances which have lead him to deny his sexuality by living in the closet and seeking sexual encounters in public bathrooms. The sooner that America moves towards true equality for all Americans, the sooner we can leave sad scandals like this behind.

There are plenty of politicians who refuse to plead guilty - even under the light on irrefutable evidence, so there is no way one will cop a plea to something they didn't do. Craig is just as guilty as Mark Foley.

I'm not sure, but I think GOP now stands for Grimy Old Perverts.

I thought it stood for Gays on the Payroll

or, in light of Senator Larry Craig's ignominious behavior, Gays on the Potty!
