How do you prove yourself not guilty of something like this? It really wouldn't be worth a U.S. Senator's time to fight a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

I wonder if this cop wasn't aggressively looking to make arrests so the locals can feel like something is been done about the problem. What's most odd is the cop apparently being willing to let Craig go but Craig refused to exit the restroom and was placed under arrest. Sounds to me like that was the conduct which got him arrested not checking a stall to see if the guy who's sat there for 13 minutes is finally done with the facilities!

I wouldn't be surprised if Craig knew the signals or has in fact had homosexual affairs. I don't care. I care about his pompous 'do you know who I am' attitude which I just won't tolerate from public servants. Add in his support for amnesty and he's not worth having around in the Senate gay, straight or just another jerk.

I fear trash are the only ones who will run for office. The others can’t get financed or value their privacy too much.

especially Republicans who ought to know 1/2 the universe is gunning for them, think they will never get caught.

It seems that the whole lot of our congresspeople think they’re above the law and can do anything they wish without consequences.

One would think that a gay U.S. Senator would have enough social contacts to find more discreet ways of satisfying his sexual desires. Why risk public humiliation from arrest in a public restroom, especially when these arrests happen all the time and it is already rumored that he engages in this activity?

A wise elderly friend once told me that the people engaging in the most risky and dangerous activities are the ones who have successfully gotten away with it many times before.

>>In any case, I doubt he would have been arrested and charged if there was serious doubt as to intent of his actions. While all this hand waving and foot tapping may be unfamiliar to most, I find it hard to believe that a judge would accept such evidence if they weren’t well known by law enforcement as signals used by people who engage in such acts.<<

While I don’t doubt the cops know the signs I would be surprised if that would have been enough for a conviction.

I could certainly send signs to a girl that I was trying to pick her up without doing anything that would be illegal.

Of course, I don’t have a lot of experience with girls who sit in toilets waiting to be picked up like the cop was doing. Maybe there is a whole world I’ve missed.

I like how the one guy knows the “signal” of tapping your foot.

He's a cop on the Vice Squad.

I don’t even recognize the name.. Is this a U.S. Senator? I would have thought this would be bigger news.

Larry Craig is the Senior Senator from Idaho. He's a senior GOP senator and believe me...this will be big news for the next several nights. Between Gonzales resigning and now this it looks like the GOP is in for another beating.

I have very big feet. I must be very careful I don’t bump anyone else’s feet in a public bathroom.

How about the line about "having a wide stance." Sounds like someone searching for reasonable doubt. Afterall, everyone knows you grab the side walls before you take a wide stance.

Is that a woman or a dairy cow with bad blond dye-job?

Put a milking machine on it and stop pretending it's a sex object.

Why is it only being reported now?

Retaliation for the recent Bob Filner incident at Dulles a few weeks ago.

We get what we deserve.

WE continually take people we wouldn’t trust to babysit our 7 year-old and send them to Washington expecting integrity?

We all need to keep in mind that this is the American media reporting this affair. Therefore it may or may not be a complete lie. It will take some time before any of us know what actually happened.

Yes, after all these years I have finally come to understand that nothing reported in the media can be taken at face value. Nothing.

Mr. AG BILL himself, Diane Fienstiens buddy. Well, Craig many years ago was a decent rep and then he turned. When one is compromised, well...they’re compromised. Shouldn’t be a surprise he’d sell out to illegal aliens lobbies as well.

Bawny Fwank can diddle anyone he wants but a republican does it and it’s front page news...?

Both should be judged as wrong.

This is not one of those, "if you think I'm ugly, you should see my sister" routines. And do we want Republicans acting like DemocRATS just because?
