He is not not guilty. He has never been not not guilty.

Former Senator Larry "Wide Stance" Craig has lost out on his attempt to plead both ways on his completely-not-gay interactions with an undercover cop in a men's room a year ago:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) will not be allowed to withdraw his 2007 guilty plea to “disorderly conduct after he was arrested last year in a bathroom at Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport by an undercover policeman.” The court ruled that Craig’s rights had not been violated and that his guilty plea was “accurate, voluntary and intelligent.”
I think "accurate, voluntary, and intelligent" are the best adjectives Larry Craig could hope to wrangle from this situation at this stage; it can only get worse from there. Now that he's out of the Senate, it seems well past time for removing to a quiet stall in remote Idaho where all his foot-tapping will be interpreted as the signals of a man profoundly committed to faith-based family values.
