Larry Craig has stopped his legal battle. It was impossible and went on far longer than it should have - there was no way that confession and plea agreement was going to be overturned. Not on the first appeal, not on the 28th.
He just should have denied what the cop was saying right from the start. Everything. The cop didn't have any evidence and I don't think many people would find it all too hard to believe that a cop lied while carrying out an idiotic public sex sting.
I know, Larry Craig thought the whole thing would go away if he copped to it. But he's famous and it was going to get discovered and plastered all over the media. At least he could have dealt with that sting for what it was and not emboldened the police.
Moral of the story: if you're going to cruise, boys, make sure you have a plan for if you get arrested. Know your rights.
