Whatever Senator Larry Craig Was Doing, He Should Resign

Now, I am not saying that Senator Larry Craig should resign because he might have been trolling the bathroom for a quick hookup. I think he should resign for acting like an idiot while going to the bathroom.

Normal people (who have not been elected by their state to represent them in the US Senate) manage to go to the bathroom all across American and not manage to do any of the things Senator Craig apparently (according to him) did by accident. This included touching the foot of the person in the next stall. I can't see how that could be managed by accident unless he completely fell down.
Arrest Report: At 1216 hours, Craig tapped his right foot. I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct. Craig tapped his toes several times and moves his foot closer to my foot. ... The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area. - Wikipedia
Really, how far stretched out was his leg?
Craig explained the movement of his foot by saying that he has a wide stance when going to the bathroom and that his foot may have touched - Wikipedia
Sure Senator. Then there is his idiotic claim that he was not extending his hand under the stall, but was trying to pick up a piece of paper. Not paper that he dropped, just a piece of paper on the ground of the bathroom stall. I could believe that he was picking up dropped money, but his excuse does not come off as believable at all. Not for anything, but the policeman has stated that there was no paper on the ground.

As far as I am concerned it does not matter if he was looking for another man or not. Listening to the arrest interview, it is clear that whatever he was trying to do in the bathroom, it resulted in behavior that is not acceptable. For that, he should resign.

Not only should the Senator resign, but he should also take a course in bathroom etiquette to keep him out of trouble in the future. This man needs help.

No. It is not acceptable for gay men to go trolling in public bathrooms for sex.
