Larry Craig says MSP airport sex sting was part of official business

| No Comments

Former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig claimed Thursday that his sex arrest at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was part of official Senate business, said Minn Post.

In order to avoid repaying the $217,000 in campaign funds Craig used to defend himself after his 2007 arrest, he said that the trip, which included the bathroom trip where he was arrested, were all part of his official duties, said KSTP.

Craig's attorney Andrew Herman wrote, "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," according to Politico.

In 2007, Craig was arrested by an undercover officer, who said that Craig indicated that he was seeking sex and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for the event, said MinnPost.
