Larry Craig Attempted Newspaper Lawsuit

larrycraigmug4-11.jpg
The Idaho Statesman had senator Larry Craig running scared earlier this year. The local paper had been investigating Craig’s long-rumored homosexuality and, apparently, Craig didn’t approve:

Months before his arrest at a Minneapolis airport, Sen. Larry Craig was considering a lawsuit against an Idaho newspaper and hired an attorney he later retained to represent him in the sex-sting case.

[Craig] hired Washington lawyer Billy Martin and public relations executive Judy Smith in late January or early February, spokesman Dan Whiting said Wednesday.

Craig hired Martin and Smith because he was thinking of suing The Idaho Statesman newspaper for “harassment” over its investigation into Craig’s sexual orientation, Whiting said.

Craig’s team stopped working with him on July 7th, four days before his infamous encounter with an undercover cop in the Minneapolis airport.

      This is interesting, very interesting. Can you just imagine what addiction would possess this man under the microscope, to provide his political enemies with the ammunition they seek by playing roulette with his public lewdness.

      Many social scientists would describe this behaviour as self-loathing and self-hatred as to put oneself in a way for society to punish this “naughty nasty boy.”

      No trolls, I am not talking about Bill Clinton.
