Larry Craig, is he 'Da ho', a 'Nauti' Ho, or does he love his job?.... Author: RaineDate:10/08/2007 12:15:59
Good Monday morning! Amidst all the sports this weekend, I am sure some of this one went under the radar... Larry Craig to Join Idaho Hall of Fame Yes, you read that right... Idaho has a "Hall of Fame"... (I did not know either)
Sen. Larry Craig will be inducted into the Idaho Hall of Fame next week, despite his well-publicized arrest and guilty plea in an airport sex sting, officials said.
The non-profit Idaho Hall of Fame Association picked Craig in March, months before he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a Minneapolis airport police officer accused him of soliciting sex in the men's restroom, the organization's board chairman said.[...]
But some Republicans said the honor is inappropriate now. Kootenai County Republican precinct committeeman Phil Thompson said Idaho Hall of Fame officials should consider at least postponing the induction.
Perhaps Larry will stall his induction the same way he did with his senate resignation? In the end, I'm sure Larry is flushed with pride...
The male escort responsible for the downfall of Christian evangelist leader Ted Haggard is now alleging that embattled Senator Larry Craig also came to see him.
While promoting his new book during a radio interview with KNWQ-AM in Palm Springs Wednesday night, Mike Jones hesitated from making the allegation on the air.[...] While he hesitated doing so on the air, a NewsChannel 3 camera was rolling when he made the accusation during a commercial break.
Feingold asked whether the Senator had seen Jones in a hotel room.
Jones responded, "No, he came to see me."
Jones then added, "His travel records to Denver have been documented. That's what I wanted to say." [...] "I've been with many politicians and all I can tell you is for a fact, that Larry Craig is a hypocrite."
Oh my, oh my... Now, I don't want to be one to pass scurrilous rumors... but... well... Maybe they just had some man talk about wide stances and stuff. This could get interesting. It could bad, naughty, even nasty...
The travails of Craig, who is seeking to withdraw his guilty plea to charges related to what the authorities say was a sex-solicitation incident at a Minneapolis airport restroom, are only the latest to rock this eclectic Washington neighborhood.
One resident describes the strip of Potomac River waterfront as a "floating trailer park" where everyone knows everyone else's business. Protected by locked gates and security, members of Congress mix with lawyers, lobbyists, judges, bureaucrats, established and aspiring government contractors and others lucky enough to live there.
"There's no other place like it. Why would all these big shots with their big boats be anywhere else?" said Dutch von Ehrenfried, a former yacht club commodore who says a Cabinet member, NASA astronauts, and the musician Yanni have attended parties on his boat. [...] Craig, known as exceptionally frugal, unwittingly called attention to the club when he gave the arresting officer in Minneapolis his club mail drop as a home address. Craig is a well-known figure at the marinas, where he has lived off and on during his 27-year career. [...] Neighbors float only a few arms-lengths away from each other. Most shower in bathhouses and, after hours, gossip over drinks.
:scratch: You think they will shower together now, knowing Larry is back in town???? I am not making this stuff up. I couldn't.
So on this Monday morning... I ask every one of us to proclaim: I am not gay... I have never been Gay... I love my wife... Loudly, proudly, and get used to it, cause Larry Craig isn't going any where, till he clears his name... and that will be a goldmine for months and months at this rate.
