Mickey191 BS: Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho)- lewd conduct (344* d) RE: BS: Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho)- lewd conduct 29 Aug 07


FROM GOOGLE:

Allegations that Craig is a homosexual have followed him for at least 25 years. In 1982, CBS News broke stories on the Congressional page sex scandal. In the first story, an unidentified page said he'd been propositioned by male members of Congress. Though the story didn't implicate then-Representative Craig, nor any member of Congress by name, Craig immediately issued angry denials of any involvement… the only member to do so.

Six months after the unfortunate page stories and Craig's response, he got engaged. Today he's married, has three grown children and nine grandkids.
Why has he appeared so horrified for so many years that someone might think he's attracted to men? Part of the answer lies in his constituency. He's been elected to five House terms and three Senate terms by loyal voters in the conservative state of Idaho. His public life and stance is the antithesis of gay. He has often voted against gay rights, and last year supported a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Idaho.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's the hypocracy and his voting record that should make him ashamed. His constituents may not care-as long as he continues to vote their way.

We know one thing--Mitt does not suffer fools lightly. Here's your hat, Larry--What's your hurry?
