Senator busted in bathroom -- UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2007 at 5:50 AM

U.S. Sen. Larry Craig won't be working in the Mitt Romney campaign any longer. It would be a "distraction," said the Idaho Republican, now that word has leaked out of his arrest in a Minneapolis airport restroom for making an overture to an undercover officer investigating sexual activities. NY Times account. Craig faces re-election next year.

The Washington Post details the usual hypocrite angle -- opponent of gay rights, same-sex marriage, against gay people in the military. And, of course, he called Bill Clinton a "bad, nasty, naughty boy."

UPDATE: Rep. Steve Harrelson's Under the Dome uses the Craig arrest to make a point or two about the Family Council's various efforts to hinder adoption or foster parenting by gay people.
