Which goes to show that it is true.
Obviously, they caught him dead to rights
>>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.<<
The timing is just unbelievable. Like the way they held the Rumsfeld resignation until AFTER the election where it could have helped.
If the Republicans had been smart they would have been letting the media dig into Dean dissing the largest swing state and “Has Dean gone crazy again?”
Update: Free Republic has reprinted the Roll Call story. At one point during the interview, Craig handed the plainclothes sergeant who arrested him a business card that identified him as a U.S. Senator and said, What do you think about that? the report states. I think he can probably start throwing away those cards now.
I've wondered that for years. Like Clinton, WHY? He could get a nice hooker that would keep her mouth shut. WHY? It's got to be the risk factor itself. Just what ya want leading your country.
C.L. ‘Butch’ Otter, R-Gov Idaho, will appoint I wonder who if Craig resigns?
Remember Congressman Bob Bauman from Maryland?
“Seems like a long time to just be sitting there.”
13 minutes is nothing for me. That is about the only place I can get any peace and quiet. Al Bundy and I have more than a few things in common.
On another note, while I agree this guy is creepy, what lewd act did he participate in? It does not sound like he actually verbally propositioned the cop. And is trolling a crime? Just a question for any law enforcement/lawyer types out there.
I Cudna just let that scroll by without comment.
(grin) That's a line that deserves a Sonnet...
I am confused. Did he expose himself or just prop someone?
Actually, this is not main-stream media news.... yet.
Just rumors from various bloggers.
I’m still - on record - as a doubter.
But I will say this: Many hot breaking stories start out from the bloggers.
And from Free Republic.
Remember; Rathergate started here on good ol’ Free Republic.
But I’m drawing a complete blank on who the illustrious FReeper was that broke that story.
A little help please, anyone?
Good....lets purge these bastards. Get em all out of the GOP.
Guilty as charged? DU is calling you....go to the dark if you will.
Are you guys in his district?
Otherwise this loon has nothing to do with me, lol.
LOL!! I hope this clown has the shame to resign immediately.
The GOP doesn’t need any Barney Franks.

Craig pushes immigration reform Senator predicts millions will lose jobs after Social Security crackdown. By Dan Popkey - firstname.lastname@example.org
Edition Date: 08/10/07
Pressure to pass immigration reform will intensify as millions of undocumented workers lose jobs as a result of a crackdown by the Social Security Administration, Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, said Thursday.
“What will happen over the course of the next two months is several million workers will be laid off or fired and there is no one to take their place,” Craig told the Boise Rotary Club.
I'm inclined to agree. The illegal immigration thing alone might have done it - Craig was not just a vote there, he was an active promoter of shamnesty. He has heavy funding from Big Ag working for him in a state with few other sources of political funding but working against him is a heavily LDS-oriented south (Craig is, IIRC, a Methodist himself) that will not take kindly to this news.
Idaho is not a slam-dunk for a Republican Senatorial seat, BTW - anyone remember Frank Church? If Craig isn't defeated in the primaries I think the Republicans may have a problem.
I have a problem with the story. It says he reached down and the cop saw he was wearing a gold ring. He was in the stall to the left of the cop. The ring. . . if it’s a wedding ring, would be on his left hand. The cop would be looking at his right hand.
That denotes at least 1 flaw.
