Senator Denies Lewd Conduct After news surfaced this week that Idaho Sen. Larry Craig had pleaded guilty to a charge stemming from a June 11 lewd conduct complaint in Minneapolis, a watchdog group and fellow Senate GOP leaders called for an ethics committee review. He is accused of trying to engage an undercover police officer in lewd behavior in an airport men's room. Craig, 62, now says he did nothing wrong and should not have pleaded guilty.
