Larry Craig Accepts Sex Sting Guilty Plea

The disgraced Senator was busted by an undercover cop for soliticing sex at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on June 11th, 2007. Craig is married to a woman and has repeatedly denied that he's gay.

Reuters reports:
Former Idaho Senator Larry Craig has ended his effort to void the guilty plea he made following his 2007 arrest in a men's toilet sex-sting operation, his lawyer said on Thursday. The Minnesota courts have denied the Idaho Republican's appeals asking that he be allowed to withdraw his disorderly conduct guilty plea, which was processed by mail much like a traffic ticket. Another appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court would have been fruitless, because the case did not raise significant or novel issues, Craig's attorney Thomas Kelly said. The three-term Republican's term ended this week, and he has returned to Idaho, Kelly said. READ MORE
