Sex Sting Guilty Plea Stands For Senator Larry Craig

Idaho Sen. Larry Craig has lost his latest attempt to withdraw his guilty plea in a Minneapolis, Minnesota airport men's room sex sting.

A three-judge panel of the Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday rejected the Republican's bid to toss out his disorderly conduct conviction.

Craig was arrested in June 2007 in a Minneapolis airport bathroom stall by an undercover officer who said the senator solicited sex.

He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and paid a fine, but changed his mind after word of his arrest became public. Craig insisted he was innocent, but the case effectively ended his political career.

Craig's attorney argued before the appeals court this September that there was insufficient evidence for any judge to find him guilty.

Prosecutors said his guilty plea should stand.

    Fluter, enjoy. Remember though, you will find a tool in every shed, but not every shed is full of tools. Chicago is a big, filthy, tool shed. Your boy obama is just "one" of the crooked, questionable tools from this slim pit.

    I'm sure there are many other "gays" who use the Republican "Family Values" Party as a cover-up as well.
