Larry Craig Loses
Another Attempt to Clear His Name

Outgoing Idaho
senator Larry Craig has lost his latest appeal to withdraw
a guilty plea after being caught in an Minneapolis bathroom
sex sting. According to the Associated Press, Craig's
appeal was rejected by a three-judge panel of the
Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday morning.

The senator was
arrested in June 2007 for disorderly conduct after he was
accused of soliciting sex from an undercover police
officer in a restroom at the Minneapolis airport.
He initially pleaded guilty and paid a fine, but he
attempted to withdraw the plea once his arrest was
made public.

Craig's attorney,
arguing before the court in September, said the
evidence was insufficient to find him guilty. (Michelle
