How much time and money does the Minnesota taxpayer have to waste on Republican Larry Craig’s “Adventures in Potty Land?” His legal team has filed yet another appeals in the Minnesota courts system
hoping they’ll eventually get a Pawlenty R-Gov MN) appointed judge. Craig’s team has decided to split pubic hairs with Minnesota law:
An appeals brief filed Tuesday contends that Minnesota’s disorderly conduct law “requires that the conduct at issue have a tendency to alarm or anger ‘others'” — underscoring the plural nature of the term.
Craig’s brief goes on to cite other convictions that were overturned because the multiple-victim test wasn’t met. His lawyers apply the same logic to his case.
His attorneys have also argued that Craig’s actions only affected the police officer (who of course, is irrelevant in this case). And since the statute requires to offend others, Craig’s actions shouldn’t be considered a crime.
“Appellant’s alleged conduct in this case affected only a single individual — Sergeant Karsnia,” the Craig brief says. “It did not — and could not affect ‘others’ as the disorderly conduct statute requires, and therefore, does not satisfy that element of the statute.”
But wait! There’s more!
Sergeant Karsnia doesn’t count as a party to the crime that would be regarded as “offended”.
You might say; “You’re kidding Fruit! Why?”
…Let me tell you why!!
The brief also argues that Karsnia himself could not have been offended by the alleged conduct because “he invited it.” The alleged conduct, Craig’s lawyers added, doesn’t rise to the level of being “offensive, obscene, abusive, boisterous or noisy.”
You’d probably say: “That’s stupid! That’s an insult to our own ‘Boys in Blue!’ How dare this Idaho Pervert insult our officers here in Minnesota!!?!”
But wait! There’s more!
What about that hand-gesture underneath the stall’s separating wall? He reaches over with his left hand under the wall on his right-hand side and holds his hand out hoping to masturbate his bathroom neighbor? It turns out – that’s now considered “free speech”!!
Besides attacking the law he was prosecuted under, Craig’s legal team argues that the hand signal allegedly used to communicate a desire to engage in sexual conduct would be constitutionally protected speech. They also say the plea is technically flawed because it lacked a judicial signature.
Huh!! Ain’t that sumpin’?! All these years, I’ve been told that burning the American flag was protected free speech! And to think all of those times I got arrested slutting on Bare-Assed Beach along the Mississippi River…All I had to do is tell the judge that I was exercising my Constitutionally protected free speach!
All of this puzzles me why Minnesota Republicans aren’t bitching about the wasted taxpayer spending here in Minnesota. They didn’t say much when they wasted $57 million investigating Clinton either!
One day Suzanne Craig will get smart and have an AIDS test too.
