I don’t know what the Idaho GOP’s stance is on reforming the party, but I can tell you that their stance on Larry Craig is, shall we say, wide.
The former Idaho Senator lost his job after tapping his toes in a Minneapolis airport bathroom, apparently a signal that he was interested in an anonymous restroom relationship with another gentleman. After insisting for weeks that he was innocently occupying his time on th can by playing footsie with other patrons, Larry Craig resigned his job in 2007, with the caveat that he would return if the Minnesota courts found him innocent. They didn’t. A couple of months ago, he resurfaced following an FEC investigation that found Craig had used $242,000 donated for his re-election campaign to pay for his legal costs.
It makes complete sense, then, that the Idaho GOP has not only welcomed him back, but officially tasked him with fundraising.
Remember Larry Craig, the former Idaho senator who was arrested in 2007 for soliciting sex in a men’s airport bathroom?
Well, he’s back.
The Idaho Republican Party — which found itself in total disarray and without a chairman earlier this year, despite its statewide sweep in the midterm elections — just hired Craig as financial chair of its executive committee. Party officials told the Associated Press that Craig will fill an empty position dedicated to volunteer fundraising.
Fantastic. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
