David Phillips. Mike Jones. Greg Ruth. Tom Russell.
Four gay men, willing to put their names in print and whose allegations can't be disproved, have come forward since news of U.S. Sen. Larry Craig's guilty plea. They say they had sex with Craig or that he made a sexual advance or that he paid them unusual attention.
They are telling their stories now because they are offended by Craig's denials, including his famous statement, "I am not gay, I never have been gay." Those words, spoken on live national TV on Aug. 28, are now memorialized on a just-released-for-Christmas Talking Senator Larry Craig Action Figure.
David Phillips is a 42-year-old information technology consultant in Washington, D.C., who says Craig picked him up at a gay club in 1986 and that they subsequently had sex.
Mike Jones is a former prostitute who told the world he had sex with the Rev. Ted Haggard last year. The former Colorado Springs evangelist at first denied it but eventually confessed. Jones says Craig paid him for sex in late 2004 or early 2005.
Greg Ruth was a 24-year-old college Republican in 1981 when he says he was hit on by Craig at a Republican meeting in Coeur d'Alene.
Tom Russell, now 48, is a former Nampa resident who lives in Utah. Russell said his encounter with Craig occurred at Bogus Basin in the early 1980s.
A fifth gay man, who is from Boise but who declined to be named for fear of retaliation, offered a recent and telling account: He was in a men's restroom at Denver International Airport in September 2006 when the man in the next stall moved his hand slowly, palm up, under the divider. Alarmed,....

Is THAT the new standard of proof these days? That an allegation doesn't have to be PROVEN; it just can't be DISPROVEN????
Wow! That kinda sets our notion of equity on its head.
Not to mention, logically, it's impossible to prove a negative.
right. we all know how credible gays are in political issues.
The top two most reliable arbiters and dispensers of truth.
“...whose allegations can’t be disproved...”
So, can they BE proven? Or just can’t be disproved?
I want the Republican party to be known as the moral party, it won’t happen with men like Craig serving in the U.S. Senate.
Let the democrats have the Ted Kennedys, Barney Franks, Sheets Byrd, John Kerry etc. (The list is endless)
"My friend, you have seen this incident based on sworn testimony. Can you prove that it didn't happen?"< /Criswell Predicts sequence from Plan 9 From Outer Space >
Does this sort of thing only happen at airports? Some good boot-stompings of those hands would take care of the problem in no time.
How about we demand the KKK recruiter and murderer and traitor who lied to Congress and aided the enemy in a time of war all leave office too?
That is some standard to “let” the Democrats keep their vile SOBs with no national question of their character. 2 of those 3 were on the way to the presidency.
Nor can they be proved, I'll wager.
This is the caliber of man we have elected to represent us and to write our laws.
I caught that as well. What a bunch of hooey.....
Well, Larry Craig knew who would be his friend, if elected President:
I am more disturbed by this guy who wrote the article masquerading as a journalist.
He’s not being forced in the closet he’s being witchhunted out of office.
