Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself.

He cites a U.S. Senate rule in which reimbursable per diem expenses include all charges for meals, lodging, hotel fans, cleaning, pressing of clothing - and bathrooms.

"Not only was the trip itself constitutionally required, but Senate rules sanction reimbursement for any cost relating to a senator's use of a bathroom while on official travel," wrote Andrew Herman, Craig's lawyer in Washington, D.C., in documents filed Thursday.

As long as he nails it in the bathroom, it's reimbursed.

All this idiot ever had to do was fight the original charge. He was arrested for tapping his foot and running his hand along the underside of a bathroom stall. Even if you WERE there for sex, it would be pretty easy to argue that you weren't.

I worked at a college years ago and they had a problem with bathroom sex, so periodically university cops would come in the bathroom and stare at you through cracks in the door while you were taking a dump. That was creepy as hell.

Nah, it was in downtown DC. There was one particular building on campus that became a random gay sex hangout, much like airport bathrooms and rest areas are these days.

That was 20+ years ago. They actually busted enough people that it isn't a hangout anymore.

So if he had killed a hooker in a bathroom during a trip, he could use his campaign funds to defend himself? Congress gets all the good perks.

Just pay it you cheap bastard. Or it will be in the news again and again and again and we will be reminded again and again how you were so antigay and yet you were seeking gay sex in an airport toilet.

Reasonably zealous legal defense IMO. He was on his way to work.

Hey, it's worth a shot.

What I think might be worth discussing even now is how ridiculous it is to be arrested for signaling you're down to fark somebody. If this were illegal for straight men, there would be a mass incarceration like we have never seen.

I totally was on my way to work when I bought that blow, ergo, it was a business-related expense.

"Simply put, no principled distinction can be drawn between the Kolbe matter and this case," Herman contends. "Sen. Craig's legal expenses arose during official Senate travel, an activity that was part of his constitutionally enumerated duties as a holder of federal office."

i'm going out on a (really stout) limb here and say that the only similarity was official travel. Kolbe was fighting off an inquiry. not tap dancing around a "yeah i did it -- oh shiat did i say that" cock gobbling try.

Here's how naive I was in college. I was working late on a Friday night at the campus magazine. I had to pee, so I went to the men's room, which happened to be a notorious cruising spot. There was a row of about 10 urinals, and every single one was taken. At 12:30 a.m. in a supposedly closed building. When I walked in everyone turned and looked at me. I went back to the production room and asked "so, do they do sociological experiments in the mens room or something?" and everyone laughed at me forever.

One of the men's bathrooms at the community college I went to was a hotspot for gay fun. Tap a foot, tap back, rub them together to show you both know what you mean, and then the blowing and stroking and humping could commence. Partook of it many times myself, most were average guys but sometimes there'd be a hottie/hung guy/both.

Heh.

I'm pretty sure I cockblocked at least half a dozen hetero and gay couples in college in the graduate library, but goddammit, I wanted somewhere out of the way, open late, and empty as hell to study. Of course, "somewhere out of the way, open late, and empty as hell" was also a draw for couples who had roommates to get it on.

Didn't really feel that bad, though. Be more creative or figure out a 'roommate can you just chill out in the lounge for the next half hour' sign to leave on the door.

Signaling somebody that you are ready to fark shouldn't be illegal, but gay or straight if you are going to fark in a public place that is illegal. Craig was trying to get his action on right their in the bathroom, and don't even tryo to lie to yourself or others and say he wasn't.

Catch up with the times, Mr. Craig.
If you had been first in line at the local Chick-fil-A this week, all would have been forgiven.
