Craig's List

The Idaho Statesman Journal is running a story about four gay men who have stepped up to say that they either had sex with Idaho Senator Larry "wide stance" Craig or that he made a sexual advance or them unusual attention. The four are: David Phillips, Mike Jones, Greg Ruth, and Tom Russell. A fifth man claimed an advance by Craig, but did not want his name used. Of the group, I'd be willing to toss Mike Jones' name out as just an attention seeker (you might remember Jones' name from his 10 minutes of fame as the former prostitute who said he had sex with the Rev. Ted Haggard last year. Personally I'd be willing to bet that Jones just wants more time in the limelight.). But that would still leave four men with stories that Craig continues to deny. From the paper:

David Phillips is a 42-year-old information technology consultant in Washington, D.C., who says Craig picked him up at a gay club in 1986 and that they subsequently had sex.

Greg Ruth was a 24-year-old college Republican in 1981 when he says he was hit on by Craig at a Republican meeting in Coeur d'Alene.

Tom Russell, now 48, is a former Nampa resident who lives in Utah. Russell said his encounter with Craig occurred at Bogus Basin in the early 1980s.

Craig continues to deny everything while the rest of us sit back and wait for the next guy he hits on to capture it on his camera phone. In the meantime, you can enjoy your own Craig denials with this handy "Larry Craig Still Not Gay" doll from

Understandably, Republicans are disparately seeking to establish a new brand to replace the dated 2004 NeoCon model. Thanks to Craig's List, it looks like they will be the party of narrow minds and broad stances. Larry is a gift from God which keeps on giving.
