(CNN) - The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday rejected Sen. Larry Craig's effort to withdraw his guilty plea in a sex-sting operation.
don't worry Bush will pardon him!
What does he expect? You play footsie with a cop in a men's room, you admit it publicly, and then you want to get off scot free? Give us all a break, Senator.
Good! Due process!
Let's not allow today's news to cause us to forget all the corrupt, sick, disgusting Republicans running around out there. I'm still waitng for Bush, Chey and Rove to be arrested and put in prison for all their crimes. Especially, the crimes against humanity for purposely starting a war based on lies which resulted in the deaths of thousands.
He's a Perv. Vote him out. Move on to real news.
A fitting end to an undistinguished career. I do feel sorry for his wife.
There is nothing wrong with being gay or bisexual. There is nothing wrong with discreetly trying to find an adult, human partner with similar interests.
However, there are little boys in airport men's rooms who should certainly not be exposed to such activities. Neither should I.
While a slap on the wrist would be appropriate for a first offense, this man wrote laws which sent other men to jail. Now he claims he is so dumb about the law that he didn't realize that pleading guilty meant that he was confessing to the crime. He was only lying to the court, he explained, not really confessing. I think he has confessed in public to purjury, and should be punished for that crime too.
What does "Guilty by a technicality actually mean"? And is it possible that Larry Craig could actually hide his gay(side) behind such a cloak of "technicality"? I am sure he is trying to do just that!
Your wife is about to dump you for being Gay.
What a hypocrit Republican!
take his punishment and if he has any shame go quietly
I guess his 'wide stance' defense didn't work.
When Craig goes down, he should take Charlie Rangel, Barney Franks, and Chris Dodd with him. They are all crooks and liars.
Old pontificating queens and mensrooms=bad idea. Why doesn't he simply come out of the closet and escape the shadows? Take a lesson from J., Edgar Hoover Sen. Craig: We will ALL find out about your "secret life" someday - even though you may not be around. Wouldn't you rather live your life openly and honestly for a year before you go, rather than bringing more heartbreak to your family after you're gone? It's not about WHAT you are; it's about WHO you are.
Do you know?
The whole thing sounds like a witch hunt to me. No one besides the "arresting officer" saw the thing but it's disorderly conduct? Sen. Craig's lawyer is right here. If only one person is offended then it's basically "too bad dude, stop lookin' in other people's "bedrooms" and you won't be offended" But "foot tapping" is free speech? That might be going a bit far. Even so isn't that the same type of thing as "hey baby, can I buy you a drink" in bar?
It's OK Larry, there is a "Christian" group out their somewhere that will cure your sexual desires to be more compatible with christianity. We all know that homosexuality is reversible if you know the right preacher who can release those demons. It's been done before. LMOL
Let's see......Illinois Gov arrested for fraud and extortion
Larry Craig looking for some action in an airport restroom
Bill Clinton did have sexual relations with that women
NY Governor paid a prostitute 3000 dollars an hour
And they wonder why the American People are tired of politicians and corruption!!!!!!
Good, it should be rejected. What? Do these folks think they are above the law..........They never seem to learn, do they?
Poor Larry, he would be so much happier if he just faced the fact that he is gay and moved on with his life. He could find a nice man, buy a condo together, host dinner parties... but instead he keeps pretending, being ashamed of something that should have no shame at all.
If the Republicans ever wish to be a viable party again, they need to build integrity and sending Craig packing is a good first step!!! I am in favor of instilling the Uniform Code of Military Justice as a Congressional ethics package to force Congress to abide by the same laws as our military. It seems like a fair request!!!
It's okay to come out, Senator.
Maybe the Democrats and Republicans should call a truce for a day. Since the story about Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Senator Larry Craig broke on the same day, maybe both parties should just take a day off and relax. Just like Larry Craig's lifestyle should not reflect on Bush, Rod Blagojevich should not reflect on Obama.
OMG – what a fruit !!!
well said Lisa.
