Men's Room Arrest Reopens Questions about Senator Craig Idaho's Republican Senator Larry Craig has served five terms in Congress and three in the Senate. He's so popular that, when it appeared he might not run for re-election next year, there was a "draft Craig" movement. Now, news of his guilty plea after being caught in a men's room sting may change all that. Yesterday, Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call reported that Craig pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being accused of making a sexual advance to an undercover policeman in an airport men's room. Today, the Idaho Statesman has published a long article saying that the incident "echoes previous allegations of homosexual conduct." Statesman reporter Dan Popkey wrote the article.
