Craig restroom draws tourists

September 17, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

When tourists ask for the bathroom in the Minneapolis airport lately, it's usually not because they have to go.

It's because they want to see the stall made famous by Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig's arrest in a sex sting.

"It's become a tourist attraction," an airport official said, adding that workers regularly get asked for directions.

Craig was arrested June 11 by a Minneapolis airport police officer. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Craig has since said his guilty plea was a mistake. His request to withdraw the plea will be heard Sept. 26, days before he has said he will step down from his Senate seat.
