Larry Craig and David Vitter

Want to protect marriage.

Two United States Senators implicated in extramarital sexual activity have named themselves as co-sponsors of S. J. RES. 43, dubbed the Marriage Protection Amendment. If ratified, the bill would amend the United States Constitution to state that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman.”

Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), who was arrested June 11, 2007 on charges of lewd conduct in a Minneapolis airport terminal, is co-sponsoring the amendment along with Sen. David Vitter (R-LA).

Craig, who entered a guilty plea to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct, was detained and charged for attempting to engage in sexual activity with a male undercover police officer. His arrest and plea became public two months later. At that time, Craig attempted to withdraw his plea and enter a new plea of not guilty. To date, his efforts have been denied by the courts.

In July of 2007, Vitter was identified as a client of a prostitution firm owned by the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, commonly known as The DC Madam.

With a Democratic controlled Congress it is unlikely the bill will be brought up for a vote in either the Senate or House of Representatives.

Of course it wouldn’t occur to them to start with own.

Well, all they need now is Ted Haggard to do the T.V. spots.


  1. Is it just me, or does that seem a mite transparent and desperate?

  2. I think they just want to enjoy all the benefits of cruising guys, without having to worrying about marital obligations. After all, if gays can’t get married, gay sex isn’t adultery. 😛

  3. These guys must be masochists. Why don’t they just paint Ridicule Me on their foreheads and be done with it?

  4. The bill should be amended to read that marriage “shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Extra-marital affairs, however, shall consist of a man and anything with a hole. A Senator’s right to extra-marital affairs shall not be abridged.”
