Police Report Details Craig Arrest on Lewd Conduct Charge
Tuesday, August 28, 2007

According to a Hennepin County, Minn., court docket, Idaho Sen. Larry Craig pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge on Aug. 8, with the court dismissing a charge of gross misdemeanor interference to privacy.

The court docket said Craig paid $575 in fines and fees and was put on unsupervised probation for a year. A sentence of 10 days in the county workhouse was stayed.

According to the prosecutor's complaint, airport police Sgt. Dave Karsnia, who was investigating allegations of sexual conduct in airport restrooms, went into a stall shortly after noon on June 11 and closed the door.

Minutes later, the officer saw Craig gazing into his stall through the crack between the stall door and the frame, fidgeted with his fingers and returned to gazing through the stall for about another two minutes.

After a man in the adjacent stall flushed the toilet and left, Craig entered it and put his roller bag against the front of the stall door, "which Sgt. Karsnia's experience has indicated is used to attempt to conceal sexual conduct by blocking the view from the front of the stall," said the complaint, which was dated June 25.

Conservative Bloggers Comments:
Let me be quick and to the point on this one. It is time for Senator Craig to resign. There should be no discussion or delay. Regardless of party he has shown that he is not worthy of the high office of a US Senator. While he most certainly is not the only one that ought to resign (perhaps another post we can talk about others), it is CERTAINLY his time to resign. His behavior in the restroom cannot be explained in any way that should allow him to serve as a US Senator. Goodbye Senator Craig. You will have enough problems trying to explain it to your wife and kids ...
