One of Larry Craig's Gay Lovers Tells All

This post. written by Pam Spaulding, originally appeared on Pam's House Blend

What a day of sordid revelations this is. First one of Donnie McClurkin's bed buddies fesses up, now one of Toe-Tapping Larry Craig's pickups comes forward to talk about a sexual encounter with the Idaho Senator. Via Wonkette:
One night, Phillips continues, "I followed [Craig] from The Follies to a Capitol Hill neighborhood, parking on the street no telling how far from his house. We walked up the alley and through the back door of a house, with him repeating several times, 'You were never here. You don't know me. Right?' and me responding, 'Right!' in boyish submission.
As we tiptoed from the back door to the stairs to the upper floor, as if somebody else was home, he turned to grope my crotch and brush my face with his hand." The house's decor led Phillips to believe that this was a married man: "The bric-a-brac with family pictures didn't scream 'old queen' to me; it announced a woman's influence. Still, we made our way upstairs.
"When we got to what reminded me of a rarely used guest room, he stripped me down, and the man's hands and mouth were all over me.
Argh. That's enough. It gets even more graphic later on.
