THIS POST COMES FROM AN OPENLY GAY GUARDIAN READER LIVING IN MINNEAPOLIS
Sex in bathroom stalls is incredibly disgusting and typically involves note passing and whatever signals indicate that a person is available.
Public bathrooms have become quite risky for guys on the prowl, gay, straight or bisexual. According to a (gay) friend, there is a publication that lists hot cruising spots natonally or maybe internationally, so the Minneapolis airport might be on that list.
If this list is publically available that means that the cops read it as well. How dumb do you have to be to take this kind of risk?
Craig’s “flat-footed denial” of any wrong doing and his vow to reverse the guilty plea (which is an unlikely outcome) are both incredibly lousy strategies. It guarantees that Craig will be ripe fodder for talk radio and the bloggers for several days. (Jay Leno made several jokes on NBC last night).
The hypocrisy of this sanctimonious Republican family values icon getting caught being “naughty” is like Christmas for Air America, the progressive talk network. (Air America Tuesday was playing a tape of Craig during the Clinton impeachment saying “naughty, naughty man.”) He would have been well advised to do as fellow Republican Mark Foley did and declare himself a drunk, retreating to a recovery center in Europe. It’s too late now.
