Craig Busted for Lewd Behavior
The Washington Post and other media is reporting that Craig was arrested in June for lewd behavior in the men's bathroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Since then, Craig pleaded guilty, was fined $500 and placed on probation for one year.
According to the police report, the undercover officer set up his position in the restroom at noon on June 11. A few minutes later, Craig entered and sat in the stall next to him. Craig began tapping his right foot, touched his right foot to the left foot of the officer in the stall next to him and brushed his hand beneath the partition into the stall next to him. He was then arrested.
While he was interviewed about the incident, according to the police report, Craig gave police a business card showing he was a United States senator. "What do you think about that?" Craig asked the officer, according to the report obtained by Roll Call.
But...it was all a big misunderstanding, according to Craig. And darn it, he should've never agreed to plead guilty to the false charge in the first place.
Update: Can't help but wonder if Craig's vanishing support with Idaho conservatives in June had more to do with his arrest than his immigration stance.
