Well, it looks like Larry "I am Not Gay" Craig -- who has remained a senator despite his initial promise to resign as of September 30 -- has been caught by Idaho's most influential paper, the Idaho Statesman, and left without a stall to stand on, so to speak.
In a December 2nd article, accompanied by graphic audio accounts of gay sexual encounters with Craig, the Idaho Statesman (owned by McClatchy Newspapers) provides the names and stories of four men who appear to undercut Senator Craig's claims that what happened in a Minnesota washroom was due to him being a victim of "profiling."
We're not familiar with older, tall white guys from Idaho being "profiled" a whole lot, and apparently the long-standing rumors about Craig are once again being confirmed. Craig has shunned and ridiculed the Idaho Statesman since it first began exploring Craig's hypocrisy on his sexual preferences (he has been a big anti-gay stalwart). But the newspaper has kept on the beat, so to speak, and documents its article about the post-Minneapolis revelations about Senator Craig with graphic audio clips.
As we noted in our BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite "award" to Senator Craig on August 31st of this year:
Here is an epicenter of GOP Hypocrisy: the pro-family, pro sanctity of marriage, NRA Board member, and point man in Congress who gets caught trying to arrange a gay sexual encounter in a Midwest airport washroom. This is not a case of alleged lascivious behavior: Craig pled guilty to the charge....
No doubt, Larry Craig was claiming to be technically correct when he welcomed reporters to his news conference with the sentence: "Thank you for coming out today" and then declared, after many pokes in his numb wife's backside, that "I am not gay." His escape hatch for that claim is that he is apparently bisexual, not exclusively gay.
Yes, the GOP, like many repressed priests, has a monstrously large hypocrisy and violation of the public trust problem. It's almost become an axiom that the more self-righteous the Republican or Fundamentalist, the more likely he or she is to be a hypocritical sinner of the flesh.
So it's not the gay sex that is the issue; it's the hypocrisy!
That's why BuzzFlash began GOPHypocrites.com in September of 2003. But, as we note every week, "So many Republican hypocrites, so little time."
We highly recommend not only reading the Idaho Statesman article, but also listening to some of the audiotapes online.
It's always informative to know about the extracurricular activities of a recently installed member of the Idaho Hall of Fame, "Idahoans on Loan to the World."
Oh, and apparently Senator "I am Not Gay" Craig apparently often had gay sex with his pants on.
Not very romantic of him.
