U.S. Senator Pleads Guilty To Disorderly Restroom Conduct August 28, 2007Posted by fitsnews in US Politics.
IDAHO REPUBLICAN WAS SERVING AS ROMNEY’S NATIONAL CO-CHAIRMAN
FITSNews – August 28, 2007 – Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, one of the biggest “family values” Republicans in all of Washington, D.C., is reported to have pled guilty earlier this month to disorderly conduct charges stemming from a June arrest in a men’s restroom at a Minnesota airport. Craig, who is up for reelection next year, was serving as national co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign until news of his arrest broke yesterday:
According to the police report, Craig entered a bathroom stall next to the police investigator, placed his bag against the front of the door and tapped his foot in a gesture commonly used to try to pick up men in public toilets … “I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct,” the investigator said.
Umm … forgive us for having completely non-existent “gay-dar,” but since when did tapping one’s foot in the bathroom become a universal homosexual mating call? Seriously, what if somebody was just grooving to their iPod, or was deaf and in need of some toilet paper?
Also, we’re pretty sure Arnold Schwarzenegger was tapping his foot in that bathroom scene from True Lies, you know, right before he beats the ever-living crap out of two Muslim terrorists who were sent to kill him after his not-so-clever art dealer ruse was unmasked. And Arnold is definitely not gay – or else the whole “art dealer ruse” probably would’ve worked and those Muslims wouldn’t have followed him into the men’s room.
Anyway, Sen. Craig claims his foot-tapping was “misconstrued,” and given the circumstances we were actually inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Of course, that was before we took a look at the necktie he’s wearing in the picture above.
If we were prosecuting this case, we’d have simply walked up to the witness stand wearing that tie and said “Senator, is this yours?” Of course, he would have gasped and started crying, at which point we’d have ripped it off, thrown it at him and said “Your honor, the state rests.”
That’s right, b*tches. Perry Mason ain’t got sh*t on us.
