Larry Craig in the Sunday Idaho Statesman “More gay men describe sexual encounters with U.S. Sen.”
Warning: The Idaho Statesman has a warning that the audio clips they have links to include explicit language.
"David Phillips. Mike Jones. Greg Ruth. Tom Russell.
Four gay men, willing to put their names in print and whose allegations can't be disproved, have come forward since news of U.S. Sen. Larry Craig's guilty plea. They say they had sex with Craig or that he made a sexual advance or that he paid them unusual attention."
The Statesman has been on this story for months now and have checked Sen. Craig's travel records and run background checks on these four men as well as a fifth man who didn't want to be identified.
I'm sure we will be seeing more of the toe tapping Senator on the evening news this week.
Robert Novak's distrust (which ran in a sidebar next to the story) is after the jump.
If Novakula is discrediting Craig, you know the GOP wants him gone….
NOVAK VOICES DOUBTS
Conservative columnist Robert Novak has raised doubts about Sen. Larry Craig's truthfulness. In his syndicated column Sept. 3, Novak wrote that "several Republican senators and staffers were not a bit surprised" by Craig's guilty plea in connection with a sex sting.
On Oct. 5, the day after Craig reversed his pledge to resign, Novak elaborated on Bloomberg Television, saying he'd spoken to several Senate sources about Craig.
"They knew about it," Novak reported. "They knew he had this problem, and it was in the closet and it was not just a homosexual relationship, it was this weird, weird conduct."
Clearly Craig is a man who believes he is not gay, but still likes to smoke a pole on the side, when he feels the whim.
