It's been reported that Larry Craig (R-Idaho) won't be attending the Republican Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota this September. Perhaps passing through the airport would bring back too many bittersweet memories. (Cue in Barbara Steisand). And in other Republican sex criminal news this from St. Louis:

JEFFERSON CITY -- Missouri state Rep. Scott Muschany, R-Frontenac, was indicted today in connection with a reported sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl on May 17, the day after this year’s Legislative session ended.

The alleged victim is the daughter of a state employee. The girl’s mother and Muschany -– who is married and has two children -- were romantically involved, the woman said.

A Cole County grand jury returned an indictment today charging Muschany with the Class C felony of "deviate sexual assault." The indictment identifies the victim only by initials. It says that on May 17, Muschany "had deviate sexual intercourse" with the girl, "knowing that he did so without" her consent.

If convicted, Muschany could face a fine of up to $5,000 and a prison term not to exceed 7 years.

Muschany surprised many in political circles by announcing in late May that he was not running again this November. At the time he said he wanted to spend more time with his family.
