Larry Craig guilty plea upheld

by

Minnesota's Court of Appeals ruled this morning that Larry Craig, Idaho's senior senator, is not entitled to withdraw his guilty plea in a disorderly conduct case that began in an airport bathroom stall.


Read the ruling here and comment below. We'll have a more detailed report later.

Response from Craig: “I am extremely disappointed by the action of the Minnesota Court of Appeals. I disagree with their conclusion and remain steadfast in my belief that nothing criminal or improper occurred at the Minneapolis airport. I maintain my innocence, and currently my attorneys and I are reviewing the decision and looking into the possibility of appealing. I would like to thank all of those who have continued to support me and my family throughout this difficult time.”
