Senator Larry Craig resigned as Senate co-chairman for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign after it was disclosed that he plead guilty to disorderly conduct. Actually he was soliciting an undercover police officer for gay sex while in a bathroom stall at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in June. Craig denies any wrongdoing and says his hand signals under the bathroom stall door were misconstrued. Craig used a whole set of elaborate signals that indicated he was interested in some sex in the bathroom stall according to the article in Roll Call that broke the story. This wasn’t the first time for Senator Craig. On YouTube there are videos of him in 1982 denying any involvement with pages and drugs.
In February, Mitt Romney announced that Craig and Robert Bennett would serve as co-Senate liaisons for the Romney campaign. “Both men have a unique perspective of the new generation of challenges confronting our nation,” Romney said in the statement when he announced their new jobs in the Romney campaign. “I look forward to working with them to find the solutions needed to ensure that our country remains a strong world leader.” But since the guilty plea was announced, “Senator Craig has stepped down from his role with the campaign. He did not want to be a distraction and we accept his decision,” Romney’s campaign said in a statement. They also removed a video of Craig praising Romney from Romney’s YouTube site. In the video Craig says the reason he is backing Romney is because, “he has very strong family values.” “That’s something I grew up with and believe in,” Craig adds. Do strong family values include a little man love in public bathrooms? Senator Craig was one of those that backed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. He also has been repeatedly acccused of having gay sex since the early 80’s, and has denied it every time. During his arrest he handed his business card that clearly showed he was a U.S. Senator to the arresting officer and said, ‘What do you think about that?” I guess he thought he had another get out of jail free card, but it didn’t work this time. Romney was smart about distancing himself from Craig, but he should have seen through this clown long ago. Since 1982.
