Is This It for Craig?

Mountain Goat posted a link to a kos article about Larry Craig being arrested for lewd conduct.

You can follow the story from there. Since this happened in June, it makes you wonder about Popkey's effort to get to the bottom of the allegations about Craig sexuality.

In the comments, it appears someone has access to the arrest report.
At 1216 hours, Craig tapped his right foot. I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct. Craig tapped his toes several times and moves his foot closer to my foot. I moved my foot up and down slowly. While this was occurring, the male in the stall to my right was still present. I could hear several unknown persons in the restroom that appeared to use the restroom for its intended use. The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area," the report states.

Craig then proceeded to swipe his hand under the stall divider several times, and Karsnia noted in his report that "I could ... see Craig had a gold ring on his ring finger as his hand was on my side of the stall divider."

And there's this which appears to be Craig's side of the story.
Craig stated "that he has a wide stance when going to the bathroom and that his foot may have touched mine," the report states. Craig also told the arresting officer that he reached down with his right hand to pick up a piece of paper that was on the floor.

There is no room for any more water on the sinking ship of the GOP as it limps to the 2008 elections. Therefore there will be a clamor, though perhaps not all vocal and public, for the tainted conservative from Idaho to fall on the sword and retire from the Senate.

Maybe he could use advice from David Vitter [R-La}.
