    ..Craig: Airport bathroom trip was official business
    By JOHN MILLER | Associated Press – Fri, Aug 3, 2012....

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Craig aims to fend off a federal election lawsuit against him by arguing his infamous July 11, 2007, Minneapolis airport bathroom visit that ended in his sex-sting arrest was part of his official Senate business.

    Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself. Craig counters that money tied to his airport bathroom trip was neither for personal use or his campaign, but falls under his official, reimbursable duties as senator because he was traveling between Idaho and the nation's capital for work.

    He cites a U.S. Senate rule in which reimbursable per diem expenses include all charges for meals, lodging, hotel fans, cleaning, pressing of clothing — and bathrooms.

    Not surprising, considering the source.

    Sad thing is that he is likely to get away with it. Heck, I doubt there are many in Congress that want to see him lose this, they all know they could be next, maybe not in a gay (or even straight) sex sting, but they know corruption sits knocking at their doors and the wolves are baying outside.

    Better to let the man squeak by as long as he is no longer one of them than to find themselves in his shoes some day.

    Actually it looks like the left is sooooo desperate for a new diversion that this will have to do.

    Dumb irrelevant thread is dumb. Just like Craig.
