The BBC and various other news agencies reported earlier this week that the Larry Craig toilet has now become a tourist attraction! In a bizarre twist, and of far more legal interest, is the leaping of ACLU to Craig’s defence. Pink News reports that ACLU are starting an action against his and similar “sting” operations stating: “If the police really want to stop people from having sex in public bathrooms, they should put up a sign banning sex in the restroom and send in a uniformed officer to patrol periodically. That works.” The case is Craig v. State of Minnesota and a ACLU briefing file can be seen at: http://www.aclu.org/freespeech/gen/31842lgl20070917.html
