Senator Larry Craig Watch: Craig Appeals Minnesota Judges Ruling

Share

U.S. Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) is pictured in these police booking photos taken on June 11, 2007. A Minnesota judge on October 4, 2007, refused to let Craig take back the guilty plea he made after a sex sting arrest.

Craig Appeals Minn. Judge’s Ruling

U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho appealed to the Minnesota Court of Appeals on Monday in his ongoing attempt to withdraw his guilty plea in connection with an arrest in an airport bathroom sex sting.

Craig’s appeal was filed at the court in St. Paul less than two weeks after Hennepin County Judge Charles Porter refused to overturn the guilty plea, saying it “was accurate, voluntary and intelligent, and … supported by the evidence.”

Flap cannot imagine ANY appellate court overturning a trial court judge’s ruling in this minor matter.

At first this entire FLAP appeared to be hurting the GOP but as it drags on and with Craig’s refusal to resign (after announcing early he would quit) is evloving into “politics as usual” rather than an exclusive GOP scandal.

Moreover, the Idaho GOP has NO danger of losing this seat with demographics, registration and a number of front-line candidates ready to run in 2010.

Senator Craig can do what he likes. He is ONLY humiliating himself and his family.
