representing the Minneapolis-St. Paul International
Airport plan to fight Sen. Larry Craig's
attempts to withdraw his guilty plea, airport
spokesman Patrick Hogan told McClatchy Newspapers. The
judgment was sealed when Craig pleaded guilty to
disorderly conduct and paid a $575 fine, Hogan said.
"There was an arrest, several weeks later
there was a plea, and a fine was paid," Hogan
said. "We will object to the motion filed by the
senator and vigorously defend the existing plea."
Craig moved on Monday to reverse his guilty
plea, stating he was in a "state of
fear" and concerned with "unnecessary"
publicity when he signed it.
No date has been set for the hearing. The
airport plans to file a response to the
senator's motion within a week, according to Hogan.
