Group Says Airport Police Should Apologize For Craig
The American Land Rights Association has thrown its support
behind embattled Senator Larry Craig, and is calling for a boycott
of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport and Northwest Airlines.
The Republican senator from Idaho is accused of attempting to
solicit sex in an MSP men's restroom. He was busted in a June sting
The ALRA says the airport police officers who arrested Craig
"ambushed" him and "have effectively declared war on the West. They
are primarily responsible for greatly weakening private property
rights and Federal land use advocates in the Senate Energy and
Natural Resources Committee and in Congress."
Huh? If that seems like a leap in logic, read on.
The organization says it is dedicated to "wise" use of
resources, access to Federal lands and the protection of private
property rights, according to the ALRA Web site. Craig is a member
of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, according to
the Associated Press.
The group said the airport police are "out of control"
therefore, "We must inflict economic pain on the airport
authorities to get them to change their behavior."
As for Northwest, it seems to have gotten caught in the
"Northwest Airlines uses Minneapolis St Paul as their main hub.
They are also headquartered in Minneapolis. So we would suggest
that you also avoid using Northwest Airlines. That will put
additional pressure on the airport authorities and police to change
their behavior," said the group in a statement.
