What I don’t get is, while I think he was doing exactly what is described for the reasons that are descibed, what exactly did he do that is illegal? I’m convinced that he’s a scumbag, but is sticking your shoe under the stall against the law? What am I missing?
he probably had a hookup on Craig’s list.
I like how the one guy knows the “signal” of tapping your foot. Ugh....but hey, there are homos everywhere....so where are the sensitive, bedwetting lefties on this one? Oh yea, that’s right, it only matters if the homo is a lefty.
He is married to the former Suzanne Thompson. They have three children: two sons, Mike and Jay, a daughter, Shae, and nine beautiful grandchildren.
I’m not saying that they guy is innocent, but I don’t think that his suspicious actions are enough for any kind of conviction. The man should have refused comment without a lawyer.
This is gonna make for some interesting conversation around the turkey at Thanksgiving.
I could be wrong, but I smell a setup to "out" someone because of their politics or some other agenda. That being said, I think Idaho can do a lot better than Sen. Craig given his "Lindsey Graham" approach with open borders.
i wonder if you would have shaken this particular republican senator's hand before reading this article. or would you have automatically known he was a homo and therefore declined to shake his hand.
perhaps we can bottle your super keen gay-dar. we'd make millions!
The only reason I know the answer is because I read Free Republic.
I felt I had to disclaim that!
Seems homos target ALL US airports for there sick hook-ups.
The dems have openly serving homosexuals, and get to keep their seat, thus their hold on congress.
The repubs have closet homosexuals, that get outed, maybe by a strawman homosexual pretending to be a boyfriend (”met me at the restroom”), and the repubs lose seats. hmmmm.
If you want to know who Larry Craig is, just search Larry Craig and 2nd Amendment..........there should be loads to look at.
No kidding. Sucks to be a Craig today.
Seems homos target ALL US airports for there sick hook-ups.”
Good grief. I didn’t know that. Now I do. Guess I’ll be in and out that much quicker now.
Reminds me of:
Not a real good choice of verbs there.
So why is this thread back up?
Count me as a doubter. If this is unsubstantiated rumor, then you were right to pull this!
This is like the ex-mayor of Spokane who tried to hook up with a homosexual and got busted by the Spkesman Review.
Or that GOP consultant in Florida that was killed in a house with three other people, he was supposeldy a homosexual too.
Why are there so many homosexuals in the GOP, especially ones that are (supposedly) conservative?!
If only Idaho would pass the “Gay Sex With Strangers In Public Restrooms Law” and stop all this harrassment!
Craig is a goner... He will not be re-elected.
You know you were wrong!!!!
I never heard of him. Is he married or single? I didn’t know about any of this foot tapping and finger running along the stall divider stuff. Never heard of any of this. And I live near a big city, Houston, and we moved here from Los Angeles Calif. This is just plain creepy. And just another reason I took my sons into the ladies restroom when they were young!
Amoral scumbags who dishonor their marriage vows? The GOP is about to nominate one for president.
Idaho should purge him.
I don't know, but aren't the Pubbies having their '08 convention in the Twin Cities...?
The AG resigns and then this come out...
Is there a quid-pro-quo going on here?
Is Schumer's grubby little hand all over this one?
Or any of the other Buffoon's on the Democratic side of the Isle have there hands in this one?
I Cudna just let that scroll by without comment.
I think the thread was down because, 1. these are serious charges and 2. the link was clogged so couldn’t be verified.
Reasonable actions, and I’m flattered someone thinks I could be so creative to have made this all up!
I got the story off a hint at another blog. I think afterwards Drudge put it up and crashed the web site.
“Is there a quid-pro-quo going on here?”
More likely the Craig people planted the story with the capital source when there was bigger news.
Sad to hear this about Sen Craig. Another GOP Senator bites the dust. Retire now Senator and let the Governor appoint a temporary replacement asap.
For example, is it that surprising he left his booth without flushing after a cop flashed his ID and told him to leave? I mean, the crime was not flushing or not going to the bathroom prior to arrest?
I for one would be pretty upset if I found myself arrested and convicted for this series of non-events. Shouldn't they have waited until he plainly solicited sex? The cop seems to be saying the investigation was cut short because other people wanted to use the bathroom???? lol.
I sometimes wonder if Craig and Stevens are paid with earmarks by the Rodents to act foolishly.
Sure betty. A true Christian would never think that someone could be blackmailed. /sarcasm
If the vice squad was gonna nail a GOP pansy in the men's room, then why oh why oh why [dear God] could it not have been Lindsey Graham?
Or Arlen Specter.
There truly is no justice in this life.
I did a google news search and saw the link you provided. I also see other bloggers reporting this. I also am lead to believe this is hitting the CBSMSNBCABCFOX news stations as I type this...
But I can’t believe this was hush-hused since last June!
Kudos to the mods for dropping this thread whilst they did due-diligence!
I still hope this is a nastry rumore, but -— sigh—— this sh!t happens.
It sounds like the wrong things made him "solid."
Don't worry, it will be soon!
Given that the arrest took months to come out in the press, I suspect he was hoping that the incident would pass without being noticed. Quietly pleading guilty to a misdemeanor was probably his best chance of escaping notice.
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.
It’s astounding, the trash we continue to send to represent us...
Inez you cudn’t.
There are no non-stop flights from DC to Idaho. They all require a change in planes, most commonly at SLC, DEN or MSP.
