Larry Craig Supports "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

Posted: Updated:

While the 2008 presidential campaign heats up with an unexpected twist seemingly every day, it's nice to know that there are still some predictable elements in the government. Commenting today on a meeting of the House Armed Services Subcommittee which reviewed the military's policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," America's favorite toe-tapper Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) commented that he was in favor of maintaining the policy. ThinkProgress has the story.

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) told, "Current policy has served us well. I think we ought to sustain it. I see no evidence that it should be repealed."

Craig was famously arrested last summer for trying to solicit sex in a men's room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. Craig claims that he is not gay and has "never been gay."

In June of this year, Craig and fellow disgraced Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana both supported a legislation attempting to ban gay marriage. Click here to see The Carpetbagger Report's writeup of the legislation.
