No doubt Larry Craig’s full of regret right now. Wouldn’t you be? An entire career tarnished by one word – “Guilty” – and then absolutely ruined by nine.
In an effort to regain that shattered life, the Idahoan Senator’s lawyers are looking for a way to take back that original “guilty” and null those nine.
Sen. Larry E. Craig said he had retained a lawyer to examine his case, suggesting that he may attempt to withdraw his guilty plea. That may be possible in some circumstances, legal experts say, but he would risk having more serious charges reinstated and the public exposure of other details of the restroom incident that has imperiled his congressional career.
If Craig’s feeling particularly ballsy, he can argue that Minnesota loses little by dropping his plea, nor did he appear before a judge.
Convenient, yes, but the move would also open the possibility of a new trial. What’s more, a judge could call for a trial into the matter and, if found guilty of the original charges, Craig could end up in the slammer. It’s a risk, to be sure. Legal experts say he could have avoided this drama had he hired a lawyer in the first place. Dummy.
It is very likely that Larry Craig is not gay. I talk about straight men who have sex with men at http://www.straightguise.com. But let’s say he *is* homosexual he might choose not to be gay. Whether we call that internalized homophobia, deeply closeted or shame, or just stupid the truth is men should have the right to self-identify as they wish.
Craig’s biggest crime to me is the lying!
Larry, just admit that you like mansex. You don’t even have to say you’re gay. Just admit what you did, and move on.
This guy is plain dumb. Look, if you are a 62 year-old Senator, or whoever, you DO NOT defy the cop who catches you. You climb down, do exactly what he says, follow him where he wants to take you, maintain a subdued and compliant attitude. The cop does this all the time. This guy squirmed. He first said, No. He wouldnâ€™t follow the cop although he was told it was to a discreet place. He more or less forced the young cop to arrest him. Had he followed mildly, done what he was told, he would have found himself in a private office and, at that point, still not formally arrested. Next, he should have produced his driversâ€™ licence, as requested, instead of flashing a senatorial calling card. There must have been other cops in that office. These cops are not trying to clock up arrests, just keep the airport restrooms above board. He might just have got away with a stern rebuke. Might? Sure, only might, but at least he would have extended his chances. A guy who canâ€™t even start to defend an indefensible position has no business in the Senate.
