So the Idaho Statesman's Dan Popkey either has a story that he hasn't reported yet or he spent four months investigating allegations of Idaho Senator Larry Craig's sexual orientation and found nothing. Not so for Roll Call. According to Daily Kos, Roll Call was able to secure a copy of the arrest report following this incident:
Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) was arrested in June at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men’s public restroom, according to an arrest report obtained by Roll Call Monday afternoon.
This should hasten news of Craig's retirement. We'll have more later.
Update 17:11: Craig tried to mitigate his guilty plea with this response to local NBC affiliate, KTVB:
"At the time of the incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions. I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct. I should have had the advice of counsel in resolving this matter. In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously."
It should be noted that from the time of the arrest to the guilty plea was two months. For a politician to not seek legal advice during that time on an incident of this magnitude suggests either incompetence or "scared rabbit" syndrome. Either way this is not good for Craig.
Update 18:03: Talking Points Memo is reporting that the Mitt Romney campaign has yanked the video of Craig endorsing Romney for president. Craig was a co-chair of the Romney for President Idaho Leadership Team.
Update 20:57: The Idaho Statesman has responses from the rest of the Idaho congressional delegation. A preview: we...know...nothing.
The Idaho Statesman also reports more of the undercover officer's observations:
According to the police reports, a man, later identified as Craig, kept watching the undercover police officer through a crack in the stall. Craig then entered the next-door stall and placed his luggage against the opening under the stall door.
The account goes on to detail methods of solicitation used by the Senator.
Anyone want to speculate on the resignation date?
