WASHINGTON -- Idaho Sen. Larry Craig said he was entrapped in a sex sting at an airport men's room and was not aware of the bathroom's reputation as a spot to cruise for gay sex. "Well, I certainly am now," Craig told NBC's Matt Lauer in an interview aired Tuesday night.
"Were you prior?" Lauer asked.
"Not at all," Craig responded. "I go to bathrooms to use bathrooms."
Craig said it was a "tough call" when he decided not to tell his wife or children about the arrest.
"I didn't want to embarrass my wife, my kids, Idaho and my friends," Craig said. "I should have told my wife. I should have told my kids. And most importantly, I should have told counsel."
Suzanne Craig said that when her husband told her the story was about to break, "I felt like the floor was falling out from under me. And I felt almost like I was going down a drain for a few moments."
Craig, 62, says he is not gay, and in the NBC interview, he and his wife said their marriage was based on love. Asked by Lauer whether theirs was a marriage of convenience to cover "a gay lifestyle," Suzanne Craig responded, "I would never do that. ... That's almost like selling your soul for something
Craig also discussed his relationship with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Craig was Senate liaison for Romney's campaign, a post he abandoned when the scandal became known. Romney called Craig's conduct "disappointing and disgraceful" and immediately dropped Craig when the guilty plea was revealed.
"I was very proud of my association with Mitt Romney," Craig said. "And he not only threw me under his campaign bus, he backed up and ran over me again."

Entrapped my ass. The exact same thing happened to me in the Minneapolis airport.
Not being familiar with the practice, I thought the foot tapping was just a strange nervous habit. But then the person started swiping his hands under the partition. I thought he needed TP or something. It wasn’t until this story came out that I came to realize what was going on.
I think the horse is out of the stall, er, barn on this one.
If you stomp on their foot or hand, does this imply that you don’t consent or that you like it rough?
One more reason why the approval ratings of Congress is in the teens.
Oh, Larry, get lost you toe-tapping, lying pervert!
Sheesh, I just came from the Brownback thread, and now, here’s yet another total joke of a Republican Senator.
We are in the season of reaping, and the crop is not good.
Because that's where our representatives are!
If you dare...
Let's put that statement into the Trumandogz language interpretation program:
Results: Craig, 62, says I am as Queer as a three dollar bill.
Well now Craig can hit the Campaign Trail with Rudy where they can both wear a dress.
“Too bad Craig wasn’t up on his Constitution”
well that says it all, doesn’t it?
I’m watching now, and Larry Craig is a lying liar.
Why he wants to keep digging a deeper pit, I have no idea...
He and his wife apparently share the motive.
my 1st ever comment on this subject. I believe Craig
