Republican Senator Arrested in Public Bathroom

Last fall I wrote a post called, "Glory (Hole) Be To The Gay Senator."

At the time, a Republican Senator from Idaho was rumored to be gay, so I suggested in my post that Larry Craig from Idaho go on Meet The Press with Tim Russert to set the matter straight once and for all. I also suggested some questions.

Here's an update to the story. It turns out that Senator Craig apparently was arrested earlier this summer for lewd conduct in a public restroom. JoeMyGod has the sorry story here. So does Blogactive. And Towleroad. And Queerty.

While reading these posts, remember that this is the same Senator that advocated the Federal Marriage Amendment that would have changed the constitution to prevent gays from marrying. The same senator who voted to confirm anti-gay judges. The same senator who had a voting record of "F" for gay-related issues according to one website.

As far as I'm concerned, I don't care how the good U.S. Senator likes to get his rocks off. It's his business.

But when this kind of self-loathing manifests itself in places outside of public restrooms, like the halls of the U.S. Congress, I have a problem with it.

Republican judge Edward Nottingham did something similar. He confessed that he was too drunk to remember how he spent $3,000 in a strip club on 9/5/05. AP reported that the interviewed a Mr. Frankel of the Denver Diamond Cabaret strip club, who said the GOP judge visited the strip club multiple times. His wife only has one bill and there is no record who paid for Judge Nottingham's other visits to the strip club. According to 9 news in Denver, Judge Nottingham's wife said he spent over $500 to visit an Internet site from the judge's chambers offering porno pictures and introductions to women wanting sex tonight
