The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Federal Elections Commission is suing former Sen. Larry Craig for misusing about $217,000 from his campaign funds to pay attorneys fees in connection with his arrest at the airport after a bathroom sex sting. He reportedly paid at least $139,952 to the law firm Sutherland, Asbill and Brennan in Washington, D.C., and $77,032 to Kelly & Jacobson in Minnesota for legal services related to his guilt. That was not related to his campaign for office or his duties as a senator, says the FEC.
And in another eew-y case, Above the Law has named its “Lawsuit of the Day” about a man who was burned when steam shot out of a urinal and burned the man’s genitals. Apparently the employees said they have that problem whenever the kitchen sink is running, which one would hope would be frequently. The man and his wife have brought suit. The story is also reported at the Huffington Post (Denver) where the commentators have many jokes of the “hot dog” variety.
