Really? Delta tried to buy the toilet seat the Larry Craig was caught soliciting in?? And for only $5000? Please. Put it on eBay. That shit would bring in a gold mine.
Sorry, but it turns out that just as you can’t buy Barack Obama’s seat in the U.S. Senate, you can’t buy the bathroom stall where U.S. Sen. Larry Craig sat or stood and tapped his foot in the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. They’re simply not for sale, at any price.In related news, the ACLU reports that if only Larry Craig had come out, he might have had a chance at appeal.
The agency that runs the airport refused an apparently serious offer to buy the men’s room stall made famous by Craig’s 2007 conviction for disorderly conduct in a sex-solicitation sting operation by the airport police. The Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) spurned the $5,000 offer, which arrived by certified mail, according to MAC spokesperson Patrick Hogan.
“We would not want to do that to the senator,” Hogan told the Spokesman-Review newspaper of Spokane, Wash., which is just over the state line from Craig’s home state of Idaho. “We’d want to treat this case like we do any other, and we don’t sell fixtures for novelty purposes.”
Yea, that might happen, and pigs might fly out of my butt.
