    Default Senator trys to get busy in an airport bathroom..

    Idaho senator pleads guilty after men's room arrest

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Republican U.S. senator confirmed on Monday that he had pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct earlier this month after he was arrested in June in a men's' toilet at a Minnesota airport.

    Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho was arrested by a plainclothes police officer investigating complaints of lewd conduct in the men's public restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, according to a police report cited by the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call.

    In a carefully worded statement, Craig gave no details of the incident that prompted his arrest on June 11 but confirmed that he had pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

    "At the time of this incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions. I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct," Craig said in a statement.

    "I should have had the advice of counsel in resolving this matter. In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously."

    Craig, a married father of three, paid more than $500 in fines and fees related to the misdemeanor charge and was given one year of probation, Roll Call reported.

    According to the police report, Craig entered a bathroom stall next to the police investigator, placed his bag against the front of the door and tapped his foot in a gesture commonly used to try to pick up men in public toilets.

    "I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct," Roll Call wrote, quoting the investigator in the police incident report.

    Craig is in his third term and up for re-election next year. He is a former member of the Senate's Republican leadership and played an active role in the 1998 impeachment of former President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.

    Democrats currently have an effective a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

    In a June 2006 Senate vote, Craig voted in favor of an amendment to the Constitution to define marriage in the United States as a union between one man and one woman. The amendment was defeated by one vote.

    Craig is a strong advocate for the rights of gun owners. He has a close association with the National Rifle Association and at one time sat on its board of directors.

    In October last year a gay rights activist claimed in a Web log that Craig had had several gay relationships. Craig's office denied it, saying the allegations were "completely ridiculous" and had "no basis in fact."

    Craig's troubles follow an admission earlier this month by one of his conservative Republican colleagues, Sen. David Vitter of Lousiana, that he had committed a "very serious sin" after his number was found in the telephone records of a woman accused of running a Washington prostitution ring.

    Why is it out of 275 million people the only thing we can get in Washington is scumbags? If our representatives in the federal government, make up a cross section of America, I guess we're fucked anyway.

    I think the thing Americans hate most is hypocricy.

    I, personally, could care less what this senator did, I'm pissed that he represents himself to the public one way and privately acts another way.

    I wish somebody in Congress would have the guts to say, "You know what? Sometimes I like to pick up prostitutes. You don't want to vote for me because of that? Fine. But that's who I am, and if you're going to elect me, you should know that up front."
    Hell, I'd vote for that guy no matter what party he represented.




    For the record: I've never picked up a prostitute...


    ...In an airport...


    ...In the restroom...


    ...In Minnesota...


    ...On June 11th.




    ...and gotten caught.

    Brings to mind the dubious nature of so many of the young morons that I've encountered, who claim that they've never paid for sex. I shake my head and tell them that in the real world, everyone pays for sex, one way or another.

    Sooooo true!!! The biggest difference is that with a hooker you pay her and she leaves...you never find yourself in a furniture store on a Sunday buying a $3000 armoir with a hooker!!!!

    I agree that the hypocrisy is the worst part. I could care less about what the guy does in his personal life. Not to condone the guy's voting record or anything because I know nothing about this politician other than this story, but his votes probably reflect the opinions of the majority of his constituents, who are probably rethinking their vote. But a senator actually listening to the people would probably be more shocking than the major story itself.

    Americans hate hypocrisy? What are YOU smoking!?!?! Americans LOVE hypocrisy, they THRIVE on hypocrisy. Why else do we keep ELECTING hypocrisy? Seriously. We know damn well what these people are about, and we continuously elect/follow/support them. Half of the GOP platform is hypocrisy. You think ANY of the religious right actually lives those values? You think ANY of the politicians and/or public figures advocating abstinence didn't or don't get laid outside of marriage? How many politicians behind the Clinton impeachment hearings do you think have cheated on their spouses and lied about it? How many have stood in front of a mic and lied? How many have violated in some way their oath of office, which puts them squarely in Clinton land, since they sat there and lied with their hands on a bible when taking that oath.

    And yes, I've focused on the right, because frankly they're easy. There's just as much bullshit hypocrisy on the left, just not always as obvious or public.

    We vote/preach/espouse what we'd LIKE to be, never what we are. And while it's good to strive for a better way of life, however you interpret it, to actually apply those beliefs to others before you live them yourself is complete hypocrisy, and I'm not sure there is a single politician that doesn't fit that description.

    As long as they make an apology with their spouse by their side or go to rehab, we'll re-elect them over and over again.
