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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
