Larry Craig: Slog Reader Visits the Scene of the Crime

posted by on September 5 at 12:57 PM

Slog reader Zach writes…

I found myself in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul International Aiport over the Labor Day weekend and couldn’t resist searching out the famous gay bathroom in which Sen. Larry Craig tapped his closeted little foot into infamy. The internet said the cruisy men’s room is located in the middle of Northstar Crossing, a shopping area just past the main security checkpoint as you’re heading to your gate.

It was real easy to find. As I stood there snapping photos with my camera phone an guy driving one of those little airport passenger cars slowed down to ask me why I was taking photos of the bathroom.

I said, “Well, this is the famous bathroom.”

He said, “Yes…Yes it is.” quite dryly and resumed his drive.

Zach enclosed a photo…

Love it!

He should have taken a wide stance for the picture.

Aww that's a cute bathroom. And a cute boy. THIS what I call investigative journalism!

I say we rip the stall out now and place it in a museum in Las Vegas to be properly the couch Clinton was sitting on or the bed Haggard took meth on.

What a fucking ballin' spot to hook up. It's a shame Zach didn't have the proper gels needed to remove the green from the florescent lights. I would simply love to have a proper photo.

I'm assuming nobody is cruising that restroom for sex anymore. It's probably the nearest restroom to gate C, now. Let's find out!!!

Careful. If you keep taking pictures of random transportation-related stuff, the FBI might decide you're a terrorist.

I can't see his foot - is it tapping?

Posted by Hernandez | September 5, 2007 1:48 PM

I would totally get it on in that bathroom--looks real clean.

Did you sit in the stall to see just how wide your stance would have to go before your foot crossed over into the next stall? I'm guessing you'd dislocate your hip first.

Hey, a fellow red-headed fag! It's a small world after all.

Posted by Brandon H | September 5, 2007 8:45 PM

I gotta say that you are a) a cool dude for taking the pic and b) a sexy chunky redheaded man/boy.

I say let's get out there and take all the 'homphobes were busted/exposed here' pics we can and send them all to Dan. all boys and girls taking pics should get themselves in the pics to claim their little bit of net immortality.

i totally know that bathroom. i often fly through MSP on my way from california to michigan. i've peed there many, many times. little did i know it would one day be a travel destination all it's own!

It's THAT bathroom. Christ, I've been through mpls airport many times (since I live here and all) and I guess I assumed the creepy Senator would've picked an out of the way place to make his signaling - - For more traffic and exposure to kids and the cops he could've only chosen the baggage claim bathroom as more conspicuous.

So, he's creepy, a liar, AND retarded.

I don't understand this "wide stance" thing. It made sense when I thought he meant he was standing up and peeing, but sitting down???? If you spread your feet apart, wouldn't your pants bunch up around your knees? This is assuming you've dropped trou, of course. I don't get it!

Posted by BobN | September 6, 2007 5:10 PM

You're fat.

Posted by Larry | September 6, 2007 5:14 PM

Newsweek reports the actual stall was the second one furthest from the door. Good work.

BobN #15: As I recall the recording of his confession, he explained that he liked to take a wide stance so that his pants don't end up down around his ankles. Why that would be considered desirable, is beyond me, however.

Posted by Randy | September 6, 2007 11:48 PM

Zach, you can tap your foot next to mine any time. :-)

Redheads make the best investigative reporters!

famous gay bathroom has just become my new favorite saying of 2007.

Posted by DJTennessee | September 7, 2007 6:23 AM

That is so hillarious! I bet a lot more people are gonna be trying to take snapshots.Get there quick before they shut it down.

Posted by Abe | September 7, 2007 6:42 AM

Someone should put a sign on the inside of the stall doors

"The stall zone is for narrow stances only. There are no wide stances in the stall zone."

Posted by Michael Conlen | September 7, 2007 7:04 AM

The best thing about the photo?

Craig is online masturbating to it right now!

Posted by Naughty Boy | September 7, 2007 7:52 AM

A puddin' pot cub! So sweet...and ginger, too! Thanks for the pic, dude.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | September 7, 2007 8:06 AM

Good stuff.

Posted by Ed | September 7, 2007 9:32 AM

High honor ya'll: There is a link to this posting on Josh Marshall's Talking Points Memo. Blog reviews don't get much more glowing than that.

Hey, thanks for the field-trip, and the photos...


Someone should capitalize on the fact that the RNC Nominating Convention is in Minneapolis...

Think of all the Republicans who may [depending on how many terminals there are there] pass-by, or even stop-in... that sticky Men's Restroom. They shouldn't be confused as to where they are... Maybe some "crime-scene" tape, or hey: GUIDED TOURS!

Later, Herb.

Thanx for going on the field trip. I used to fly through MSP all of the time and know exactly where you are? However, I never tap danced while I was on a layover.

Imagine Larry Craig thinks he is going to get with a 26 year old stud cop.
