Wouldn’t you know it, the story about a Republican politician getting arrested for disorderly conduct is making big news in the media and the lefty blogs as proof that the man is gay and a hypocrite.

Denying that he did anything wrong and stating emphatically that "I am not gay," Sen. Larry Craig asked the people of Idaho on Tuesday to forgive him for being arrested two months ago in a police sting in a men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Craig, who was taken into custody on June 11 by a plainclothes officer investigating reports of lewd conduct in the restroom, said he pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in an effort to suppress a story — pursued by his home-state newspaper — that he has secretly engaged in gay trysts.

Craig said the story has been following him for nearly a year.

"For eight months leading up to June 11th my family and I had been relentlessly and viciously harassed by the Idaho Statesman. If you saw the article today, you know why. Let me be clear: I am not gay. I never have been gay," Craig said in a news conference in his hometown of Boise.

For all those people who don’t know what Senator Craig is being charged for here it is in a nutshell:

  • Put a duffel bag at the front of his stall
  • Peering through a crack into an adjoining stall
  • Tapped his foot
  • Moving his shoe over until it touched an officer’s
  • And he ran his fingers along the underside of the stall divider.

And this is a sex crime?  Wtf planet are we living on again?  Disorderly conduct:

One who knowingly “[e]ngages in offensive, obscene, abusive, boisterous, or noisy conduct or in offensive, obscene, or abusive language tending reasonably to arouse alarm, anger, or resentment in others.

Was any of his conduct obscene?  Not in a million years.  His conduct after the arrest was quite bad and something which pisses me off whenever a Dem or Rep does it.  But to make this into some kind of sex crime is typical leftist tripe. 

Plus, when a Dem gets into trouble everything is downplayed.  Protein Wisdom has so valiantly pointed out the the continuing bias by our media on these stories today.  When these DEMOCRAT politicians were busted for various things the word DEMOCRAT was never printed.  (from Protein Wisdom)

Ex-MD State Sen. Tommy Bromwell, US Rep. Bob Filner, TN State Sen. John Ford, Fmr. GA Gov. Lester Maddox, Rep. James Traficant, Rep. Gary Condit, former LA Gov. Edwin Edwards, former NC district court judge Garey Ballance and former U.S. Rep. Frank Ballance, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, former NC state House Speaker Jim Black, Former Newark Mayor Sharpe James, NOLA Councilman Oliver Thomas, US Rep. Kendrick Meek, Atlanta Councilman Jim Maddox, and Revere city councilor Mark Casella, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Minnesota state Senate President James Metzen, and these three from The Jawa Report.

But a Republican gets into trouble and you better watch out.  Anchors fall all over themselves in their attempt to see who can say Republican or Conservative the most.  Want more examples?  Go check out Media Mythbusters and get some knowledge on this ongoing attempt by our MSM to ensure that any Republican who runs afoul of the law is quickly and thoroughly trashed while minimizing any Democrat who does the same.
