He Doth ‘Defend’ Too Much

By Sanhita SinhaRoy
Remember Sen. Larry "I'm Not Gay" Craig? That toe-tapping conservative GOPer who was busted in 2007 for allegedly soliciting sex in an airport bathroom? Well, I happened upon this Newsweek quote from the October 20, 2003 issue:

"I've got all your records!" -A breathless Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, to Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin, who was in Washington to talk to lawmakers about the exploitation of children

In more recent news, on June 27, the Carpetbagger Reports that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is being reintroduced. Who should be one of hypocrites behind it than our buddy Larry.

Hey, Larr, maybe stick to the bad music instead of "defending" marriage.
