LBJ's Larry Craig

Ruth Marcus observes the Larry Craig incident is not without precedent in politics.  It also happened to,

... Walter Jenkins, the aide Lyndon B. Johnson called "my vice president in charge of everything." Jenkins was arrested in October 1964 for having sex in the men's room of the Washington YMCA.
(... YMCA?  So that's what the Village People were singing about.)

In related news, a buddy of mine was sitting at a bar last night and overheard some police officers talking about the incident.  He learned that one of the reasons for bringing the bag into the stall is so that one person stands in the bag (so that only one set of feet are visible).

(I never thought I'd write about such things, but then, I never thought this story would happen).
