Idaho senator fined for lewd behavior at Minneapolis airport

Good thing we have these top officials leading us by example.

U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, an Idaho Republican, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in Minnesota this month after being arrested by a plainclothes police officer investigating complaints of lewd conduct in a men's restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

So Mr. Senator...what we're you doing in that bathroom?

Craig denied the police account of what occurred and said he erred in pleading guilty.

You know I find most people who plead guilty are usually guilty. But then again, with our justice system, you're probably better off just saying you did it and saving yourself the five weeks of court appearances only to be found guilty by some soccer mom who thinks you look like the teenager who gave her the finger in the supermarket parking lot two years ago.

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

"I wasn't pulling on it. I was just vigorously wiping some dirt off."

Craig was arrested at the airport on June 11, according to Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper. According to police reports, Craig kept watching the undercover police officer through a crack in the bathroom stall, Roll Call reported. Craig then entered the next-door stall and placed his luggage against the opening under the stall door.


"My experience has shown that individuals engaging in lewd conduct use their bags to block the view from the front of their stall," said the officer, Sgt. Dave Karsnia.

"At least that's what I do."
