Larry Craig (R-ID) will not be allowed to withdraw his 2007 guilty plea to “disorderly conduct after he was arrested last year in a bathroom at Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport by an undercover policeman.” The court ruled that Craig’s rights had not been violated and that his guilty plea was “accurate, voluntary and intelligent.” Additionally, the “court upheld the government’s power to ban ‘sexual solicitations’ in a public restroom, rejecting Craig’s claim that the law violates freedom of expression.” Craig issued a statement of his displeasure in response.
