I love this time of year.
The sun has started to rise a little bit later. The sun is setting a little bit earlier. Days are warm, sometime hot even, yet there is a hint of crispness to the air at night. Football is back on the TV and Halloween decorations are just starting to show up in the stores. And another militantly homophobic Republican has been busted in a gay sex scandal.
Larry Craig, the Republican Senator from Idaho, tried to solicit sex with an undercover police officer in a bathroom at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport this past June. He pleaded guilty earlier this month.
The details of this one are absolutely delicious!
He walked into the airport bathroom and lingered before peeking several times through the stall an undercover cop was in. Larry then entered the next stall and started tapping his foot before reaching his foot under the stall to play footsie with the cop's foot. Larry then waved his hand a few times under the stall divider to let the cop know it was time for some Larry Lovin'!
When arrested, Larry Craig handed the officer his Senate business card and said "What do you think about that?"
Oh, but it gets better. He pleaded guilty on August 8th, but now that the story is in the news, he says he wasn't soliciting sex. He just has a twitchy foot. He has a wide stance when using the bathroom. He wasn't waving under the stall... he was reaching for a piece of paper (ahh, but the officer noted in the arrest report that there was no paper on the floor, nor did Larry pick any paper up).
Today's buzzword: "Wide Stance"!
And then he lies about the whole thing. To me that is a crime in it's self. I hope this is blown up in bigger than ever, like Pinnoccio's nose. The more he lies the bigger the story.::::: | August 28, 2007 11:00 PM
