Larry Craig Loses Appeal

Former Sen. Larry Craig lost another appeal attempt to turn over his conviction. Craig confessed to attempting to solicit sex from an undercover police officer.

Craig's attorney, Billy Martin, argued before the appeals court in September that there was insufficient evidence for any judge to find him guilty.

In its 10-page opinion, the appeals panel said that Craig failed to show that Hennepin County District Judge Charles Porter abused his discretion by denying his petition to withdraw his plea. Porter had said the plea was "accurate, voluntary and intelligent, and ... supported by the evidence."

Craig needs to give up and accept who he is.
