In an interview with Matt Lauer, Sen. Larry Craig called out frienemy Gov. Mitt Romney (MA) for not supporting him after he was arrested in a public men's room for soliciting sex from an undercover cop. Sen. Craig had served as Senate liason for Romney's presidential campaign, but he resigned when the news of his sex scandal broke.  At that time, Romney said that he was disappointed in Craig's "disgusting" behavior

"I was very proud of my association with Mitt Romney," Craig told Lauer. "... And he not only threw me under his campaign bus, he backed up and ran over me again."

Hmm.  We beg to differ.  We would say that Romney threw Craig under his campaign bus, backed up, ran over him again, hopped out of the bus to check to see if Craig was really dead, got in a few licks while Craig lay flattened on the ground, then backed up his bus again a few times just to make extra sure that Craig was super dead. 

Alas, Romney's efforts failed, and Craig lived to file an appeal today to overturn a judge's refusal to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea in the case. And, of course, bring about even more negative publicity to the Republican party by doing an interview with Matt Lauer about the scandal, which will air Tueday night on Matt Lauer Reports and Wednesday morning on Today

Acoording to Wonkette, Republican lawmakers have adopted a panty hose policy for female staffers.  Apparently, they want to reflect a more puritan image to combat their freaky reputation.  A reputation earned  thanks to Sen. David Vitter's hooker fetish, Sen. Larry Craig's habit of getting it on in public restrooms, Rep. Mark Foley's love letters to little boys...   Sheesh. We can't list them all.  So many sex scandals, so little time...

Sen. Larry Craig has announced that he has no plans to resign, because he still has some very important work to finish in the senate.  He's probably redecorating the senate men's room right now.

A judge has rejected Sen. Larry Craig's motion to withraw his guilty plea, and he just may have to resign as he said he would.  Sen. Craig (R-ID) was arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover police officer in a Minneapolis public restroom stall and pled guilty to disorderly conduct for the infraction.  Initially, he said that he would resign from the U.S.Senate because of the controversy, but he later changed his mind and said that he would resign only if he was unable to withdraw his guilty plea.

Urbandictionary.com's word of the day:

Wide Stance October 1
A euphemism for a homosexual, especially one who is closeted.

This is coined from the transparent defense of Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho), to charges of disorderly conduct, stemming from his apparent solicitation of an undercover officer, underneath the partition of a restroom stall.

Prior to pleading guilty, Sen. Craig attempted to explain his behavior by claiming that his shoe touched the officer's underneath the partition because he had a "wide stance", when going to the bathroom.
 
Genevieve is really crushing hard on the varsity QB. Someone should tell her that the dude has a wide stance.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (stopchildhoodobesity.org) has produced an ad that parodies Sen. Larry Craig's (R-ID) arrest for soliciting sex from a cop in a public restroom.  The ad takes place in a men's bathroom stall and involves a lot of foot tapping and reaching into neighboring stalls.

What the heck do Larry Craig's stall tactics have to do with childhood obesity?  Watch and see.

 

 

From Politico's The Crypt:

Minnesota prosecutor responds to Larry Craig

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) knew what he was doing when he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from his arrest in a men's room sex sting, said the prosecuting attorney in papers filed Monday in Minnesota.

Craig's plea was "accurate, voluntary and intelligent," prosecutor Christopher Renz wrote in a motion opposing Craig's request to withdraw his guilty plea. "The real basis for the defendent's motion -- his displeasure with the outcome -- is not an appropriate basis for relief sought. The court should also deny the defendent's motion as untimely because it was sought only as a political reaction."

The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Minnesota.

The bathroom stall where Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) was arrested in an undercover sex sting is now a tourist attraction.  Tourists frequently visit the stall and some even take pictures.

 

Shea%20%20Howell-larry craigs daughter.jpgThe Boise Guardian reports that Sen. Larry Craig's "character witness," his daughter Suzanne Shae Howell who spoke out for him on Good Morning America yesterday, has an outstanding arrest warrant for missing a court appearance. According to the Boise Guardian, her original offenses were unlawful entry and malicious injury to property. 

If you've been under a rock (or, um, preoccupied in a bathroom stall) for the past few days, Craig is the U.S. Senator who was arrested in a public men's room for soliciting an undercover male cop for sex. Craig has not resigned, resigned, not resigned again and then resigned again in the past 5 days because of the controversy surrounding his frisky business. 

Slate.com did a piece explaining the cruising signals that Sen. Craig used to solicit sex from an undercover cop in a Minneapolis-St. Paul airport restroom.  You can read it here.

Minneapolis police have released a tape of their interview with Sen. Craig following his arrrest for soliciting another man (undercover cop) in a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport restroom on July 11, 2007.  On the tape, police accuse Sen. Craig of lying about his actions and intentions.  You can hear the audio here or read an unedited transcript after the jump.
