Ted Haggard and Larry Craig Used the SAME Escort!?

That is what Ted Haggard's escort is now claiming:
The male escort responsible for the downfall of Christian evangelist leader Ted Haggard is now alleging that embattled Senator Larry Craig also came to see him.
While promoting his new book during a radio interview with KNWQ-AM in Palm Springs Wednesday night, Mike Jones hesitated from making the allegation on the air.
Management for the radio station says Jones told them he would reveal something about Idaho Senator Larry Craig on the "Bulldog Bill Feingold Show."
While he hesitated doing so on the air, a NewsChannel 3 camera was rolling when he made the accusation during a commercial break.
Feingold asked whether the Senator had seen Jones in a hotel room.
Jones responded, "No, he came to see me."
Jones then added, "His travel records to Denver have been documented. That's what I wanted to say."
NewsChannel 3 asked Senator Craig's office to comment on the allegations that Craig came to Denver to see Jones, who calls himself a gay escort.
Craig's office said in response, "Mike Jones' allegations are completely false."
Christian evangelist Ted Haggard originally denied Jones' allegations of sexual relations in 2006.
Haggard later stepped down from his national leadership post and his New Life Church in Colorado.
Jones is not alleging that he has had sex with Senator Craig but that he is alleging the senator came to see him.
"One of the things I was good at was figuring out what people did for a living when they came to see me by things they said or their actions," Jones said on-air Wednesday night.
