U.S. Senator Larry Craig, the legislator who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct charges after being arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover officer in a Minneapolis airport men’s room, will appeal the ruling of a judge who refused to throw out his guilty plea, according to the Associated Press.
In an interview with KTVB-TV Sunday, Craig said he would file his appeal on Monday. Craig repeated he will not resign his post in the Senate and said he will continue to work his legal options. “It is my right to do what I’m doing,”he said. “I am pursuing my constitutional rights.”
