Travellers clamouring to see airport bathroom in Craig arrest

By RobotGod     Sep 16, 2007 in World
When tourists ask for the bathroom in the Minneapolis airport lately, it's usually not because they have to go. It's because they want to see the stall made famous by U.S. Sen. Larry Craig's arrest in a sex sting.
breitbart reports that Craig was arrested June 11 by a Minneapolis airport police officer. The Idaho Republican pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
But an interesting thing is happening.
It's become a tourist attraction," said Karen Evans, information specialist at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. "People are taking pictures."
Craig has now said his guilty plea was a mistake. His request to withdraw the guilty plea will be heard Sept. 26, which is four days before he has said he will step down from his Senate seat.
Only 15 minutes into her shift on Friday, Evans said she had been asked directions to the new tourist attraction at least four times. Other airport workers often field the same question.
Newsstand worker Abdalla Said gets the question daily. He tells them it is by the Lottery shop, right next to the shoeshine shop.
The grandson of The Royal Zino shoeshine shop says that it has been hectic.
"People have been going inside, taking pictures of the stall, taking pictures outside the bathroom door - man, it's been crazy," he said
It is human nature to want to be a part of scandal. To want to take a peek. See a glimpse of another side of life. It will fade in time, but for now it seems to be a hot attraction.
