Ol' Blue Eyes

Craig dances around his shoe-tapping encounter.

Idaho Sen. Larry Craig peered long enough through the crack in the men's room stall "that Sergeant Karsnia was able to observe that the Defendant had blue eyes." This is from the police report on the arrest of Craig for disorderly conduct, attempting to solicit sex in a Minnesota airport restroom. For those who are wondering (as they have been on the Fox News Channel) how you can get arrested for "simply" touching your shoe to the man's shoe in the next stall, they ought to read the details of the arrest: it was a little more than a shoe tap, which Craig, laughably, explains was due to his "wide stance." Craig says he pleaded to the charge just to put it behind him, and now wants to argue it in the public's court; the legal documents are handy if you want to hear from the other side. A man who has been a lawmaker for three decades, Craig now says it didn't occur to him to consult a lawyer before admitting guilt. It did occur to him, however, after he was arrested for lewd conduct, to hand a Senate business card to the arresting officer, and ask "What do you think about that?" Just guessing, but the cop probably thought of the good he could do by getting another elected official off the streets.
