Larry Craig’s Bobblefoot
Today is the first — and probably the last — Larry Craig Bobblefoot Day.
The St. Paul Saints, and a minor league baseball team in Minnesota, is commemorating Larry Craig’s June 11, ’07 arrest by giving a “bobblefoot” doll to the first 2,500 fans attending today’s game against the Fort Worth Cats.
The keepsake depicts a toe-tapping man in an occupied bathroom stall.
Last summer Craig was arrested for soliciting an undercover cop in a airport men’s room and charged with peeping and disorderly conduct. According to the police report Craig signaled the cop by tapping his foot under the stall.
Craig pleaded guilty to the disorderly conduct charge, but insisted “I am not gay. I never have been gay,” at a press conference, after thanking reporters for “coming out.”
Would-be crankers should be forewarned. The phone number scrawled in mock graffiti on the side of the stall does not belong to Larry Craig.
